My fourth grade students are early critical thinkers, eager to share their connections across curriculum areas. They are voracious readers and are mindful about their justifications in math. Each student knows that they are not just students; they are also mathematicians and readers, scientists and writers, even philosophers! They are kind, caring, respectful, active learners, who often learn best when given the opportunity to work with curriculum many times and in many ways. I encourage them to dig deep into what they are doing and make those deliberate and meaningful connections!
One of the ways that we can give equitable access of technology to all students is by allowing them to work together on laptops, towards a common goal. This might look like two faces to one screen while researching the same topic, or it might look like two students playing a math game together. Using headphone splitters, these students would be able to access the same piece of technology at the same time, supporting both learners! Another way that we support equitable access to technology is by providing high-quality materials for students to use, like headphones for every student.
Every student deserves the opportunity to access technology in the classroom to support their learning.
My hope is to make that access as easy as possible with these headphones and splitters!
Additionally, the flexible seating included in this project will make it possible for students to sit together comfortably while sharing their screens. It can be difficult for students to squeeze together at one desk; these stools will help make this equal access easier!
