Technology For The Classroom!

My students need an audio enhancing system for classroom presentations and to assist the hearing impaired.

My Students

We have a student in our class that is required to sit in the front of the classroom due to a hearing impairment. With this item this student would be able to move around the room due to the volume control to ensure hearing me, student presentations, and student questions.

My classroom serves 142 students from all upbringings.

We are a public middle school that serves half neighborhood students that are able to walk to school and the other half of our population rides a bus up to an hour to attend our school. We have a hungry group of kids that show up to school ready to learn.

My Project

This microphone system is intended for a single student, yet will help all students within the classroom. I have continued to read on the benefits of having a personal audio system in the classroom and with your help we will have that option. With a hearing impaired student in the classroom, they are limited to where they can sit to hear the instruction. With this system, the student would be able to have more range within the classroom. At the same time this will help all students within the classroom hear the teacher and students while information and discussion is given.

This is an item that will have an impact on all students.

An audio enhancing system is a method to engage students and improve understanding. This system will also allow all students to hear discussions or instruction no matter where they sit within the classroom.
