At our school, have a wonderful population of students. We have students from a variety of socio-economic groups. Some of our students have every technology available to them at home, while some of our students' families are struggling to make ends meet.
This grant will help all students get the full benefit of the technology we use in class.
Many of our students from low socio economic status families are very motivated to achieve goals, but are lacking the support or technology at home to help them achieve that goal. We also have several students who cannot sit in a desk all day. They need to be able to move and stand while they learn.
Some of my students have the latest technology and quality headphones available to them. Some of my students struggle to have their needs met. Many of my students do not have their own set of headphones to use at school.
These requested headphones will help my students access the full experience of some of the educational websites they use in class every day.
With this grant, all of my students will be able to experience educational websites in the same manner. This will help my students from lower SES backgrounds have the same opportunities as their peers. There are some students who listen to the sound on their computers, but this can be very distracting to the class, so headphones will make that unnecessary.
