I teach 6 sections of amazing middle school students. These students are eager to learn and explore how to make use of digital content and tools. The come from many different backgrounds and some are even English language learners.
My students are at that time in their lives when they are really starting to be involved in online platforms and I think it is very important to teach them how to interact safely and responsibly online.
Teaching them how to intelligently navigate online information is also critical at this stage of their education.
These headphones will be used in the classroom to help the students learn and review content at their own pace. Many students require additional support and with these devices, they will be able to work on what they need to do without disrupting others in the classroom.
The attached microphones add functionality that will allow the students to create podcasts and video presentations as they present class content.
These skills will also be useful in future classes. It also allows me to teach possible career paths that may interest my students.
