Quiet! Learning in Progress

My students need over the ear headphones to give them the best environment to excel in learning!

My Students

My fifth grade class is motivated and desires to learn about the world around them. Unfortunately, the school district does not have adequate resources. They desperately need technology that can open their eyes to the science and math content that the web and current educational apps have to offer!

My students are enthusiastic, eager to learn, and diverse in cultures and learning styles.

I have an integrated classroom with general education and special education students. They are especially motivated by reading and math content and activities which allow them hands-on or multimedia experiences. Our wonderful school is old and not equipped with adequate technology for making use of it daily, to enhance learning experiences. We recently got access to Chromebooks. However, we need headphones to effectively make use of these digital tools.

My Project

We are in need of thirty headphones, so that students will be able to use computers in the classroom without distractions or distracting others. Students will use the Chromebooks in partnerships, independently, and in small groups to explore bookmarked sites from the Internet which will help deepen their understanding of reading and math content, use educational apps to supplement their learning in class, and do internet research and exploration for class projects. The headphones will enable us to use the computers effectively in the busy classroom setting.

Technology can be such a powerful tool in the classroom!

It can open students’ eyes to the outside world through images, videos, communication tools, and more! It is empowering for students as they take charge of their learning experiences. I am so excited to see my students motivated and engaged on a whole new level, through the use of technology! This project will absolutely make a difference in students' lives!
