Using Listening Technology To Find Success
My students need electronic headphones to use with their new tablets to do all the things that will make them successful in this 21st century learning environment.
I teach in a rural Title I school in Georgia where all students receive a free breakfast and most receive a free lunch. More than twenty percent of our school is multilingual, where English is not their primary language.
I am an Early Intervention Program teacher whose focus is on students who are not working on grade level in reading and/or math.
I supplement the regular classroom teacher to teach skills that these students are weak in. My students are very sweet and eager to learn, but must learn in new and innovative ways. They are also children who may not be exposed to today's technology at home, or are so behind, that they don't get as many opportunities to use technology as their peers.
My students need games and activities to make learning fun and exciting. There is nothing more exciting to young children than technology that they can use on their own. Headphones for their tablets will help them focus on what they are doing on their tablets.
Instead of my students losing valuable learning time while I work with one or two students, the others will be able to pull out the tablets to play their designated review games with headphones to reduce noise.
My kindergarten students will use these headphones to practice letter, sound, and number recognition. My third grade students will use the headphones to practice fact fluency in addition, subtraction, and multiplication in fun online games for math and comprehension games for reading.
