Help me give my students headphones so they can hear their teacher during distance learning!
This project will impact almost all students at two different elementary schools. The schools share a campus and were formerly one school about two decades ago. During distance learning we have joined in collaboration so that we are able to meet our student and family’s needs as well as possible and provide staff support. We are located in deep East Oakland and because of distance learning, many families have a computer in their home for the first time!
It has been so heartwarming to see the students' personalities and curiosity shine through despite the strange circumstances of online learning.
Students have shown up every day, bright and early in their video call “classroom,” ready to try their best. As teachers we have a responsibility to spot inequity in our classrooms and work to remove those barriers. Distance Learning has created many, many inequities that we are still working to understand, and not being able to hear your teacher speak is unacceptable!
Distance learning has been full of new challenges and one of those challenges is the noise level that occurs when an entire family is trying to learn, work, and live in the same home! It has been a long process connecting students to computers and wifi so they are able to engage with their classmates and teachers.
Now that almost all students are connected we have a new challenge: students being able to hear their teacher!
It’s very difficult when students have siblings who are also doing a zoom lesson with their teacher at the same time. Students have expressed that one of the difficulties working from home is “being able to hear my teacher.” Distance learning, unfortunately, has been a very inequitable process. Help us provide tools so that our students can thrive!
Students will use these headphones each day during Zoom lessons and independent work. During lessons, the headphones will help students hear the teacher and other students. During independent work, the headphones will help them hear videos and block out background noise as they work.
