Help me raise the funds to buy a class set of headphones!
This is my 26th year at Buckeye School of the Arts. Our school is a Title 1 school, and we are in a low socioeconomic area. We have a lot of students who cannot afford to buy the "extras" for school. Our students are curious, eager learners, and love any kind of challenge.
We have one to one Chrombooks for our students to use as a tool for learning which is amazing, BUT we don't have class sets of head phones! Have you ever tried to focus in a room with all that noise?
I feel it is imperative that we have headphones to promote an atmosphere where everyone can learn without distracting noise from each other's Chromebook.
I have a first and second grade combination class this year. The use of technology and Chromebooks has changed our classrooms and helped with teaching a combination because the students have to work independently while I teach each grade level.
We have been able to access many websites, apps, and individualize instruction.
Technology has connected us to the real world by looking up information and taking virtual tours. The use of technology has helped us address diversity in learning styles. Accessing information quickly keeps the student's attention. And of course it makes learning more exciting. All this is wonderful, but...
We need a class set of headphones to help us focus, stay on track, and keep the noise level down in our classroom.
