Statewide Reach for Local Impact

FIND IT FUND IT FLORIDA

My school's ability to access current technology and new tech tools is limited. I am looking for ways to keep my class "in the know" with what's going on locally, nationally and even globally. I want to be able to ignite their interests and allow them to explore the world beyond our four walls. Technology is a great tool that can transform the classroom, but it can be costly to maintain the costs of all the accessories that go along with it.

Goal

My school's ability to access current technology and new tech tools is limited. I am looking for ways to keep my class "in the know" with what's going on locally, nationally and even globally. I want to be able to ignite their interests and allow them to explore the world beyond our four walls. Technology is a great tool that can transform the classroom, but it can be costly to maintain the costs of all the accessories that go along with it. 

 

What will be done with my students

I am requesting earbuds and earphone splitters, because I want to enhance the usage of the technology in the classroom. We currently have several iPads in our class, and my students use them both independently and cooperatively. The ways we use and incorporate the technology in our room varies, but on a daily basis we are typing, drafting, video editing, listing to eBooks and so much more! One of the biggest units in the classroom involves reading the novel Number the Stars. Students will be given the choice to read aloud, read with a friend or listen in groups. The students LOVE to listen in groups with the help of an earphone splitter--each following along and listening with their own earbuds.

These resources will allow us to:

1) Read through historical nonfiction and provide us with the means to communicate with classmates. (LAFS.4.RI.1.3)

2) Conduct research projects and produce multi-media projects like iMovie, green screen videos, etc. independently without disturbing other students. (LAFS.4.W.3.7)

3) Allows students to express what they have learned across various platforms including various forms of technology. (LAFS.4.SL.2.4)


 

 

Benefits to my students

I believe that all students can do hard things, and with the right amount of support, scaffolding and resources, they can achieve and perform to the high expectation I set for them. These earbuds and splitters will allow my students to work both independently and cooperatively, in a way that prevents them from bothering other learners around them, while allowing them to work at their own pace. It will give them the opportunity to explore and learn from various forms of media regardless of the subject area or classroom setting.  

 

Budget Narrative

The earphone splitters are 6.00 each plus tax. The earbuds are 9.00 a pair and will be able to be used with any technology we have in class. Both items requested will be able to be used both in AM and PM classes and thus reused multiple times a day by various students.
