Lively Learners Need to Listen

My students need 14 headphones. Laptops aren't as effective as they could be when they don't have headphones. Help my students hear to help my students learn.

My Students

Imagine having the privilege to finally use a laptop but you can't use the sound. This is what my kids experience all the time. Let them hear the programs they interact with at a volume louder than a whisper!

The majority of my students come from homes in areas of high poverty.

My kids rarely have the opportunity to use a computer outside of school so when they use one inside the classroom it is a big deal. It is unfortunate that they cannot clearly hear what they are doing because they do not have headphones to use.

My Project

These headphones are your basic, over the ear--something your grandparents used--piece of technology. They are durable as they need to be with third graders frequently using them. They will work like a gem though as it will allow them to truly use the computers as an aid to their learning.

My kids struggle constantly with reading so the computer really aids in modeling fluency and assisting them with their phonics.

While I am the ultimate aid in the classroom, we all know that it is impossible to be in 5 places at once. These headphones will help my kids focus and be truly engaged so that they can learn and experience success.
