My Students

I have 18 students that come to school each day excited to learn and motivated to experience new things! These students are eager to explore the world around them through diverse materials, including technology. Each student in my classroom has an iPad assigned to them to use for discovery learning.

My school is a Title I school with enthusiastic learners who come from low socio-economic backgrounds.

Our classroom consists of students from varying backgrounds with diverse social and academic needs. It is important that I provide every student with a number of opportunities to experience the world. Through their eyes I learn each day and love watching them as they discover new things!

My Project

My students need a set of volume control headphones of use with their 1:1 assigned iPads. Our class loves using their iPads for math, reading and writing as well as science, social studies and art! Through exploration, my students are able to experience the world around them without ever leaving the classroom!

I can't hear!

This is what my students say daily due to the excess noise 18 iPads create as they are utilized without the aid of headphones.

Having headphones will enable my students to focus on the task they are working on without the distraction of those around them.
