Headphones Help Students Focus When Using Technology
My students need headphones on days they are using laptops. Headphones help them focus on their learning.
Our school is about 70% reduced/free lunch. The population is very diverse.
While we continue working on math fluency with our students, some still struggle with basic math operations.
One day a week, students work on chromebooks to improve their individual math schools by using Imagine Math.
With Imagine Math, students can work on the individual skills they still need to refine in order to meet grade-level standards.
By having headphones to use with their chromebooks, students focus better on the learning at hand.
Once a week, students in my classrooms use Chromebooks and work on Imagine Math (formerly Think Through Math). Lessons are aligned to the unit being taught in the classroom, and students can focus much better when they have headphones.
Word problems are read to students in the program, and additionally, some focus better when they have background music playing.
I have noticed that students who has access to headphones complete more lessons on Imagine Math versus students who do not have headphones. Right now, only students who bring their own headphones have access to them, and the other students work without headphones.
