Mrs. Gibbons from Fall River MA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Silvia Computer Lab

My students need headphones to use in the computer lab. We have between 710 and 720 students in the computer lab weekly, and many of our headphones are broken or don't work properly.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I am a computer lab/technology teacher at SES in Fall River, MA. We have between 720 and 730 children who use the computer lab weekly.

Many of our headphones are not working properly.

Many have only one ear that works. Some have wires that are exposed. Any help is sincerely appreciated.

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things interesting and provide my students with meaningful learning experiences.

My Project

The SES Computer Lab in Fall River, MA needs new headphones for the students to use while they are in the computer lab These headphones are important learning tools as the students are doing math programs, reading programs, typing practice, and assignments in Google Drive. Many of the ones that we have aren't working properly.

Between 710 and 720 students use these headphones weekly.

Some of the headphones have only one ear working. Others have exposed wiring.

The district technology department has informed me that they don't currently have any headphones. Any and all help will be sincerely appreciated. Thank you!
