My students need a class set of headphones for technology classes.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Imagine you are in the middle of taking a listening assessment. Then imagine using headphones that are old and unreliable. How are you able to do your best if you do not have the resources needed to do so?
My students range from Kindergarteners all the way to 4th Graders.
Being exposed to technology, specifically computers, will help prepare them for the future. Our student's goal of To and Through College really does hinge on successful interaction with the latest technology. My students are economically distressed. Our school is classified as a charter school in Texas.
Over 125 students use the technology lab every day. By the end of the week over 600 students have utilized the computers and other technology. Each day is a challenge because the headphones we currently have aren't adequate and are in bad shape. 85%-90% of the resources available for the students require the use of audio technology. Currently Special Education Students use the computer programs Success Maker. In addition students in grades 1-4 use the Individual Station program. Both programs help to improve their reading and math. The computer alb is also used to administer the MAP testing, technology assessments, and TELPAS. All of these activities require the use of reliable and properly functioning headphones.
By having reliable headphones the students will be able to hear the instruction more clearly or just hear the instruction for them to be able to perform and provide their best quality work.
