My Students

My students are primarily from low-income families and are involved in using computers and tablets. Our school is a school-wide Title I school. We want students in our school to have great access to technology as they do not have this access at home.

Technology allows all students to use real-world STEM into daily instruction.

Students are very excited to use technology to solve problems using a hands-on approach.

They are eager to learn with technology as a tool for learning. Students range from 4 years old to eleven years old.

My Project

These headphones will allow students to use headphones that can be used daily during instructions. Each student will have a set of earbuds that are clearly marked with their name so that all children will be able to listen to activities that are displayed and created on a laptop or tablet.

These headphones will be used to replace ones that have become broken and these headphones will allow students to focus on their academics and not be distracted by the learning of others.

The earbuds that students will use, will allow privacy in learning. When students do not have individual headphones the quality of their learning decreases.
