Help me give my students headphones to use while completing assignments on their iPads.
I work with first graders in an inclusive learning environment at a Title I public school. Most of my children come from low-income families and impoverished home environments. Yet, each and every day, they look forward to coming to school to learn.
There is a good mixture of abilities and interests among my first grade children.
Some of my children can read, write, spell, and complete mathematical tasks at first grade proficiency and beyond, while others are just learning their letter sounds and numbers. However, regardless of abilities my students work well together as they support each other and help each other learn and grow. Also, my children have a variety of interests that keeps everyone motivated and engaged during the day. From playing math games to learning about real life topics, my first grade students are sure to be energetically involved!
My students use iPads each day across all subject areas. This is mainly because our school has adopted a blended learning model of instruction, which means that students must use technology for learning. Blended learning can be very effective towards student achievement because it is a way to provide individualized instruction to each student. However, the learning environment becomes problematic when different sounds from multiple student iPads are heard simultaneously within the classroom. The noise can be very bothersome and disruptive and ultimately a hindrance to student learning.
By donating to this project, you will help to create a better learning environment for my students and ultimately help to improve student success.
Currently, the majority of my students do not own headphones. Therefore, when they are required to complete iPad assignments in which videos, read to me features, or other sound options are necessary in order to complete an assigned task, the classroom becomes very noisy, which is a major distraction from learning. Having headphones for each student will help to create a peaceful learning environment in which all students can be successful.
