My Project

We use headphones in my class every day. Students have extensions installed to read text aloud on their Chromebooks and having headphones is important for that. I currently have only 5 sets left after the wear and tear from 8th grade students' constant use throughout the year. I would really love to be able to offer my new class next school year the opportunity to start with nice headphones.

All students have a Chromebook in our school.

New headphones have a better sound quality and smaller softer design, so they feel more comfortable to wear. Some students like to wear them just to drown out other noises that are overstimulating. You wouldn't think that headphones would be so important, but they are actually an integral part of the class and are used constantly.
