Students in 6th grade throughout TTUSD are all 1/1 chromebooks. Often there are assignments given in class that require students to watch videos or read and annotate articles online. Several of our online based programs enable students to utilize equal access tools such as text to speech in order to understand and annotate articles or required reading. While some students bring their own earbuds or headphones, many students would benefit from having a class set of noise cancelling headphones. Additionally, in the nature of our collaboratively engaging classrooms, noise cancelling headphones would be a valuable tool to increase student achievement. While one group may be working together, another group of students may be working independently. When this happens, students who are working independently would benefit from noise cancelling headphones so that they can stay focused on their own task.
