What Good Is Technology If You Can't Hear It?

My students need durable headphones that will hold up to daily use with their Chromebooks.

My Students

Our class is full of eager little learners from various backgrounds. Our school is Title I and offers completely free breakfast and lunch for all students. There is a large number of students in our school who rely on the backpack program for food. There is a high mobility rate in our area. Our community is in a rural part of the county, which limits our families' access to resources.

Our students are a creative bunch who want to experiment and create as much as they can.

They love challenges and exceeding expectations. They set goals for themselves in all areas of learning. Growth mindset is a big part of our class academically and socially.

My Project

My students need durable headphones to use with their chrome books. Last year our school became 1 to 1 with chrome books in 1st through 5th grades. While this is a wonderful thing, without headphones kids are very limited. The headphones that were given to us last year were not able to hold up to the daily use. Speakers stopped working, wires became exposed, and plug in jacks broke off. Some students brought headphones from home, but not all had the resources to do that.

How can students be successful learners if they can't hear what is being taught?

We use iReady Reading and Math daily to give kids individualized lessons at their levels. iReadyis also used as growth monitoring, tested throughout the year. Accelorated Reader is our schoolwide reading incentive, this requires kids to take comprehension quizzes on the computer. Math Facts In a Flash, Splash Math, and Accelorated Math are a few of the programs our students use to improve their math skills. On fridays, the kids love getting to play on approved websites during Fun Friday free time.

Having daily access to chrome books is necessary for our students to gain the computer skills they will need to be successful throughout life. Kids need to know how to type, use software programs, and navigate online. Living in a rural town, our students have very limited access to technology outside of school. With new technology standards added, it is essential that we prepare our students in order to be able to compete in a technology driven future.
