What Is a Computer Science Class Without Headphones?
Help me give my students durable and comfortable headphones that will allow them to get the most out of their computer lessons.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students represent a wide array of nationalities, cultures, and ethnicities; but one thing they have in common is their energy and love for technology. I teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students, and they are equally as diverse in their mental, physical, and emotional development.
In my class, the students are able to express themselves in a variety of ways.
For some it's through writing; others prefer to do it through speaking; and the artistic ones gravitate toward drawing to make their point. Regardless of the format of their product, the work that many of them produce is gratifyingly impressive.
Many of the Computer Science lessons are individualized, self-paced lessons that utilize audio and video to communicate the information. The students watch the instruction on their screens while listening on their headphones. As their teacher, I have the ability to monitor each student's computer activities from my computer, and I can interact with a single student through his or her headphones without distracting the other students.
The headphones my school uses are not very durable, so the majority of them do not last through the year.
Consequently, the students are left to use their own earbuds or go without any kind of listening device. With this purchase of more durable headphones, the students in my classes will have more than adequate listening devices throughout the year.
