My students need Koss ED1TCi headphones with microphones to best utilize programs on Chromebooks, such as Flipgrid, that require students to speak into the computer to record responses. They do not have resources to purchase headphones.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
The students in Room 17 are very special. They come to school every day eager to learn and willing to try new things, despite the many conficts at home or outside of school.
Our classroom is comprised of 29 amazing students, many of whom come from bilingual households and all recieve free lunch.
From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day.
A donation to this project will give the students a voice in their learning. Since many students are bilingual and from low income homes, they don't have access to technology in the home or the finances to purchase headphones on their own.
They will be able to respond, verbally, to questions in literature as well as write essays using the speak-to-text features in Google by using the microphone on the headset.
Flipgrid is a program where students can record their verbal responses, using the microphone on the headphones, for Science, Social Science and Math problems. Using the headphones and microphone will aleviate the language barrier students encounter when writing. The Discovery Science and Newsela programs read to students, requiring headphones for individual success.
