Mrs. Davis from Fort Wayne IN is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Headphones With ThinkPads Must Go Together!

Help me give my students headphones so they can use their ThinkPads with more apps and not disturb others. Headphones are necessary during the academic testing required in third grade.

My Students

Technology is in my classroom but my class of third-graders need headphones to use with their ThinkPads. We have been blessed to have ThinkPads for the students to use, but they are restricted by the lack of working head phones. My students live in a high poverty, low income neighborhood. Many come from a single-parent household and struggle to make ends meet.

Our school is a Title I school which relies on free lunches and books and many parents are unable to provide headphones.

Working headphones would give the students an opportunity to use the ThinkPads in all subjects to further their learning. They are very enthusiastic about using their ThinkPads on a daily basis and I want them to be proficient in this technology. The use of ThinkPads is a major component of the IRead and ILearn tests which will be administered to my third graders during the school year. Headphones for all students would be a blessing so they may have training on the ThinkPads. A donation towards headphones would help the students to use their ThinkPads in more ways and learn and grow academically through technology.

My Project

Third graders use their ThinkPads on a daily basis. Headphones will be used with many of our available learning computer apps that cannot be used without headphones. Learning in all academic areas will be enhanced by the use of technology with headphones.

Third grade is a huge academic testing year with all testing being administered on the ThinkPads where headphones must be used.

IREAD, ILEARN and IO Assessments are all online. Working headphones that are easily worn and easy to use will allow the students to perform to their unlimited potential and be successful in their school careers to follow.
