Learning Virtually

Help me give my students an environment where they can learn from home with headphones with built-in microphones. Many of my students are lacking essential items such as pencils, paper, and crayons.

My Students

We just found out that our school buildings will be closed for the rest of the school year. We are all very sad about this, but know that we need to make the best of our situation. We will continue connecting and learning virtually.

Our transition to online learning was very sudden, therefore our classroom community didn't have time to prepare.

No good-byes, hugs, gathering of materials, nothing. We have made the best of a situation beyond our control.

My Project

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our school buildings aren't accessible.

As our school closure was not planned, we left all of our materials in the classroom.

This is creating an obstacle for many of my students.

Remote learning poses several challenges. The most noticeable one is the fact that some households have multiple children learning at the same time. This can be a significant distraction. Headphones with built-in microphones will reduce this distraction. In addition, having items that are essential to learning such as pencils and paper, will level the playing field as well.
