Headphones Make Learning Just for Me!

Help me give my students headphones so they can hear individual instructions from a computer program that adjusts to their needs.

My Students

I have amazing students who have access to individualized computer-based learning programs that require each student to have their own set of headphones to be able to hear those individualized instructions. I have purchased the cheaper headphones in the past, but they don't last. I feel I truly need a quality set of headphones for my students to be as successful as they can be. I would appreciate help with this project so my students can reach their learning potentials.

My Project

Our district has supported our students with individualized learning through the use of computer-based programs like Lexia - Core 5, i-Ready math, Reflex math fact practice, and Reading Street. I feel like my students would be more successful if they had a quality pair of headphones that allow them to hear those individualized instructions. Not only are the instructions based on where the students perform academically, but these same instructions can also be heard in the students' home languages. This is great for our English language learners. Now instructions can be heard in their native language, and then the student can perform the task in English. Students can also use programs like Code.org where they are creating projects. There is an auditory component to this program so students can listen and work on their projects.
