Headphones & Microphones for Seesaw

Help me give my students headphones with microphones so they can record themselves on an app called Seesaw- an online journal that stores and shares their learning.

My Students

My students are smart, curious, fun-loving, creative, hardworking, helpful, and kind. My 20 students represent countries all over the world, as well as learning levels from Kindergarten to fifth grade. Some of my students need daily intervention while others need daily enrichment.

My school consists of about 1,000 students of diverse backgrounds and diverse learning abilities.

We have a growing population of ELL students and students for which we implement interventions in reading and math, as well as students needing enrichment to acquire success for their educational needs.

Our school does not receive Title I funding; therefore, the technology that we have in our classroom is limited and has to be funded through other means. Our school has an amazing administration and staff who are dedicated to meet each of these diverse needs. The environment of our school is warm, nurturing, and respectful.

My Project

My students are in need of good quality headphones that will allow them to hear the required programs they are expected to use in the classroom. We have 10 iPads or Chromebooks that are assigned to partners within the classroom. My students currently struggle to hear anything that is being said on the Chromebooks or iPads because they have to have the volume down so low that it does not disturb others in the room.

The headphones I would like also have noise-canceling microphones that will allow students to record their voices in an app called Seesaw.

Seesaw is like an online learning journal. It allows students to share their learning with myself, other classmates, and their families at home. Students can record videos, record themselves reading, retell a story, explain how to solve a math problem, or tell about the results of science experiments. Currently, only 2 students at a time can efficiently record their voices on Seesaw because one student goes in my office where it is quiet and the other student can go into the hallway. The headphones/microphones would give my students the ability to use technology throughout the school day, without having to share them or go without. These headphones & microphones would make such a difference in my classroom!
