My Students

They all gasp! That's what happens when a new piece of technology is introduced to a group of students at my school. I am constantly amazed by what they can do when they are given the tools for it.

They are eager to learn, make mistakes, and try again.

They love to be challenged and know that they have some control over the end product. They feel empowered when they are encouraged to do more than they have ever done before.

My Project

I have groups of students I work with every single day of the week who do recordings. They record themselves through videos and with voice overs. There's always ambient noise in the background and my quiet students aren't always picked up by the iPad microphones.

These microphones will allow me and other students to better hear recordings so we can collaborate more effectively.

These microphones come highly recommended by other technology teachers. So, I know they will be just what we need to make our recording times more beneficial for all those involved. My students love to record themselves and I know they will love these microphones.
