Ms. Comrie from Springfield MA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Headphones for Computers Help in a Large Class Setting

Help me give my students headphones, so they can interact with online resources fully without distracting each other. In order to operate the interactive exploration tools, watch videos, etc the volume on their computers must be up!

My Students

I teach math in an urban high school where resources are limited and the classrooms are almost entirely funded by the teachers. One resource that we ARE given is a set of laptops for each classroom. As 21st century kids, my students love to use them!

I would really love to expand upon our use of ​computers this year.

Not only would they enjoy it, but it's also necessary in order to compete in the world beyond high school.

My Project

We have a great Discovery ED Techbook that we are to use this upcoming year. Each section has an interactive exploratory element that really makes the math come alive in the real world. There are also videos for each topic as well as the ​narration of the readings. In addition, we love to use sites like khanacademy.org and the Big Ideas interactive learning modules. Both have excellent videos and demonstrations that students could learn from.

I would love to give my students the opportunity to engage in their online explorations in an environment that is conducive to thinking and learning.

I have large classes of students in an urban high school. 30 computers playing audio out loud at once would create quite the distracting learning environment!
