iPads, iPods, And Earbuds

My students need ear-buds to use with iPods and iPads at school. When they are all engaged in Math or Reading activities, the noise level can be very distracting.

My Students

Can you imagine a classroom of students actively engaged with iPods and iPads without earbuds? Although it's productive noise, it can be distracting and counter-productive for some learners. Students love their mobile devices. With over 100 iPods and iPads, earbuds are a necessity.

The students at our school are very motivated learners.

The school has mobile devices and provide many opportunities for 21st Century teaching and learning. Technology is integrated in all facets of the curriculum. Our school was fortunate enough to get a couple of iPad and iPod mobile carts. In addition to those, some of the classrooms are using laptop computers. They are using the devices to do podcasting, listen to stories, record themselves reading, reinforce skills and create projects. Students are really excited about learning at our school. They love working on the mobile devices and look forward to them daily. Our school is a 4 star school that has made AYP for two consecutive years. Students are learning because of the wonderful teaching staff and their dedication to education. They use the technology in their classrooms to enhance learning and make it more meaningful for the students. It is reflected in the attitudes and motivation of the students.

My Project

Students will be able to use the ear-buds with their iPods and iPads in the classroom for more effective learning. They will be able to engage in activities on their mobile devices without being a distraction to the other students. They will be able to better focus on their tasks at hand. Podcasting and listening to stories and other audio that they've created will be a cinch with ear-buds. The noise level generated by a classroom using mobile devices will be much more easily managed with a set of ear-buds.

What could be more important than having ear-buds with iPods and iPads in the classroom?

Nothing! They are imperative and will help maintain an orderly, well managed classroom. Students will be able to listen and learn with more structure. Getting the iPads, iPods and ear-buds project funded would have a great impact on student learning and integrating technology in a 21st Century classroom. Donations to this project would give the students what they need to continue to achieve.
