My Students

As a teacher in a special education inclusion room in a low income school district, my students are faced with challenges inside and outside of the classroom.Despite the many challenges that my students are facing, I am looking to provide them with a fun, interactive, and meaningful learning environment.

My students have a multitude of needs including physical, cognitive, medical, fine motor, sensory, and communication.

They love learning through a multitude of different means such as sensory activities. They learn best though creative and sensory activities.

My Project

The use of bluetooth headphones allow students to meet their auditory needs. During large group times, they can benefit from using these bluetooth headphones so that they do not become overstimulated during these large group times where it is loud. These headphones are helpful during loud periods of time such as fire drills, tornado drills, assemblies, etc. These times can scare these students and by having these headphones they can help them through these times. These headphones can be used during independent time with IPads so that each student can be working at their own learning level. Making sure that students are safe and motivated is an essential component of education.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and during these activities when their auditory needs are meet and they can work at their own pace.

The product that I have selected will help my students by giving them the auditory need that they are asking for. The bluetooth headphones are adjustable and will allow all of my students to be able to use them in their time of need. These headphones will be helpful to students when they are escalated to be able to listen to calming meditation music. These will be extremely beneficial for some students because they can use these in their times of need. They are lightweight and can easily be used in many areas of the classroom.

I have seen how these type of headphones can positively affect my students work and demeanor and that providing them these options can help them throughout the school day.
