Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 38

This project has been very beneficial for my students. Since getting the wireless headphones, my students have been able to independently use the iPads for differentiated learning. Students are able to use the iPads for coding, math, reading, storytelling, and many more activities. This has created a classroom where distractions are minimized and learning is the focus. The wireless headphones have increased engagment and minimized disruptions to learning. The students are able to work the headphones/iPads on their own and complete their learning independently. Reading group engagement has increased because of the reduction in distractions from the iPads. My class is so grateful for the opportunity to have these headphones and improve our learning.

 

Thank you for supporting us!

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

Our goal is to be able to use technology on a daily basis to independently practice our learning without distractions. We need some new wireless headphones for our iPads to support this learning goal.  

 

What will be done with my students

My students use technology on a daily basis. We have 15 iPads for our students. We need some new wireless headphones for the iPads so the students can learn independently while not disturbing reading groups and others around them. The headphones will help because students will be able to focus on their own work without being distracted by the other iPads around the room. Students will have different opportunities throughout the day to use the technology and wireless headphones to enhance their learning. 

 

Benefits to my students

By using the iPads, we are able to differentiate instruction and provide students with activities that help them learn at their level. Students will be able to independently practice the skills they need most through the use of technology. The headphones will help create an environment with less distractions for the students while learning. With multiple iPads, it is hard to find a quiet area to work. By using wireless headphones, students will be able to work near each other without disturbing one another. Students are very engaged when using technology, and it is easy to meet their individual learning needs. My students are able to use the iPads for coding, math skills, reading skills, oral storytelling, online books, and many other resources that will make students successful. Technology is a great way for students to practice learning and apply it on their own at their own speed/level.  

 

Describe the Students

We have a class with 36 students. We are a Title 1 school with all students being able to receive free lunch. Our students don't necessarily have the technology at home to practice their learning so we would like to provide them with the opportunity at school. About 20% of our students are ESOL which means that English is not their first language. About 15% are ESE where they need extra support with learning. About 10% of our students are high flyers and need enrichment opportunities for learning. We would like to have more opportunities to use technology to meet everyone's needs while group and other learning is still happening. We can do this by adding wireless headphones to our iPads. 

 

Budget Narrative

For this project, our class needs wireless headphones to use with our iPads. We need 15 kid friendly wireless headphones at $29.98 each for a total of $449.70. These headphones are durable, rechargeable, limit high volumes, and connect with the iPads through Bluetooth technology.
