My Students

My students are positive, hardworking students who always try their best. They live in a rural area and do not always have access to 21st century materials. Our school is Title I, with over fifty percent of students receiving free and reduced lunch. My students are in the exceptional children’s program and exceptional they are! My students are kind humans who deserve the opportunity to develop crucial 21st century skills that are so vital in the world that we live in.

My Project

My students will use these Hamilton Flex-Phones during times that require the use of technology to enhance their learning experience. The use of technology makes noise and can become very distracting. The use of technology is a must for my students to develop and practice implementing crucial 21st century skills.

My students use technology to further develop their learning skills in all subject areas, mathematics and literacy.

The use of these headphones will not only promote learning for the students on technology devices, but it also promotes the learning of other students in my classroom by reducing noise and distractions which will allow them to focus on the material presented to them. The students being focused is vital to the learning process of my students.
