My students have been lucky enough to work in a 1-to-1 classroom (each student has access to an iPad). Unfortunately, earbuds hurt their little ears. We would love a classroom set of headphones.
We are a small, rural school.
Our kindergarten class has every kindergarten in the district. This is our biggest class since I have been there and we have a whopping 12! Just the right size. As we continue to grow, technology is becoming an integral part of every day!
Our iPads are used on a daily bases to read stories, practice letter names and sounds, practice math skills and to create projects. The headphones will allow the students to comfortable work on their projects without hearing other people's work. We currently have earbuds but they fall out and/or hurt their ears.
At the kindergarten level, many of the activities have someone reading to them or sounds that go along with the game.
It can be overwhelming to have 12 different activities going at once. These headphones will help students to focus on their work and continue their learning!
