Our students at our school are from rural NC and have a variety of learning styles. Several of our students have a military background and may have parents that are deployed. A large portion of our students are English Language Learners. This means that English is their second language. Several only hear English spoken at school. Our school qualifies for free breakfast and lunch. Although our students may not always have the things needed when they enter our doors, we try to provide the items that will make learning fun!
Richard Stallman said, "Sharing is good, and with digital technology, sharing is easy." My students love to share their work with their digital portfolios in Seesaw, which is an app that allows them to share their work with their parents. Many of them love recording their voices explaining to their parents exactly what they are doing in their work. Often times, the noises of the classroom make the recordings difficult to understand! My students have asked for recording hand-held phones that lets them talk into the receiver thus eliminating the extraneous classroom noises! The beauty of Seesaw is that I can print any of my kiddos work with a special code called a QR code which will let anyone with a QR code reader hear their voices and see their work! The students love displaying their work in our hallways so others can see what we do in class! With the DONG Retro Phone Receivers the students will be able to block out background noise and their recordings will be cleared than ever before. The ear buds will be a great way for students to listen to each others projects and learn from their peers.
