Headphones To Type

My students need headphones with speakers to help them learn how to type and to create stories through an online program using the microphone attachment.

My Students

Can you stand before an audience and give a speech? Do you remember the first time you tried and how you felt? I want to give my students the opportunity to speak to each other in voice recordings to practice and prepare themselves for the real thing. The final presentation.

We are located in IL.

We are a public middle school and our students range in abilities. Many of our students do not have a home computer or one so old it still has windows 95 or worse the computer no longer works. School provides their only chance to work on a computer. I want to give them the best possible experience using computers and technology as I can.

My Project

I am asking for headphones with speaker attachments that will help my students when they are learning how to type. The program we use gives online lessons they need to follow. The microphone is going to be used when students are working on stories they will translate into spoken works that could be presented to younger audiences.

This will effect every student in my building.

Each student uses my class to enhance their typing skills plus gain the opportunity to create a audio book that younger students will have the chance to listen to.
