Interactive Learning Centers

My students need 8 headphones equipped with microphones for multimedia projects and for interactive reading activities.

My Students

We are tired of technology tangles! My students love exploring technology and using it to enhance their learning, but sharing with 400 students is hard! I would like to (gradually) acquire a class set of headphones to avoid losing time untangling wires and to be sure they are clean and in working order.

My students come from various locations and backgrounds.

We are a rapidly growing charter school with a focus in arts integration. Our students are driven in by dedicated parents from many neighboring communities. We tend to have very creative students, but I feel they are often underexposed to technology. I am trying to change this by integrating multimedia projects into my curriculum. The challenge is getting our hands on working technology!

My Project

We currently have a set of headphones that are shared K-8. This causes difficulty not only gaining access to them, but also with the condition they are often in when we get them. My auditory learners enjoy listening to audio books while following along in the text to enhance their comprehension, and I try to provide this opportunity twice a week for them. I would also like to begin having the students create voice threads to share their writing and practice speaking their skills. We currently do not have microphones available, which is the reason I would like headphones that have recording capabilities.

I would greatly appreciate help acquiring these materials to aide in my student's learning and exposure to technological resources.

With only my classroom budget to pull from it will take several years to get the supplies I need. There are so many awesome ways to integrate technology into the classroom, but I need help giving my students access to the materials they need. Thank you for considering my project.
