Ms. Melendez from East Boston MA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

What? I Can't Hear You!

My Students

Recently our school was able to purchase some wonderful technology for students to use. We have Chromebook carts that students use daily to practice math skills, learn basic typing, use for phonics and reading skills, and so much more! The Chromebooks are great, but they do make noise.

My second grade inclusion students live in a low-income urban neighborhood.

My students are all English Language Learners including a hand full of them with disabilities. Many do not have computers at home, and therefore may not learn anything about technology unless they are exposed to it at school. My students are creative and have a desire to learn how to use computers for their variety of functions.

My Project

With the headphones requested, students will be able to work without distraction on the Chromebooks in the class. Many of our wonderful online resources are quite noisy, and this can disturb other students (and the teacher) when everyone is learning at once. Our current headphone situation is a sad little mess of broken cheap headphones, most of which don't work. With new resources, our students will be able to learn better!

With your generous donation, you will be helping students to access technology in an increasingly technological world.

We have the technology, but without being able to hear it, it's really not quite the same!
