My students are special because they love learning! I am a K-3 Literacy Technology teacher. Additionally, I run a coding club for grades 3-5. My students show how much they love learning, because they produce some pretty amazing work!
My students are a diverse group of learners with very different needs, so we're very lucky to have this research and technology class which allows for differentiation through the use of computers.
I teach over four hundred kindergarten through third grade students during the course of a week, so every day is a new and different experience. We are an urban school with students who come from a variety of economic backgrounds.
Our research and technology class puts all of the children on an even playing field. They all learn how to use computers, use computer programs, and apply research strategies. The children love choosing research topics and publishing their work. Additionally, we introduce children to computer science by providing experiences with coding. They take pride in their work, and I hope to inspire them to continue to want to learn about the world around them.
My students do a lot of work on their computers where they need to listen to their computer in my technology class. They start each class with a keyboarding program that not only teaches them how to keyboard, but also teaches them ELA, math, and science. This program requires headphones. During class, we do a lot of different projects but most importantly, I teach a lot of kids who are budding readers and need to listen to the words in articles while they read the text.
Headphones will take my kids to the next level of learning and ours are in need of replacement.
These headphones are comfortable for the students; they don't snap when you stretch them, and they produce high quality sound. The zip ties would be for cord management since these awesome quality headphones have very long cords. We need replacement sets because my little ones tend to put cords in their mouth and the wires don't survive. These have been the longest lasting headphones we've used but some have seen better days. The replacement headphones would allow my students to get back to doing their best work!
