Ms. Delacenserie is an ESE teacher at Roberts Elementary. Last spring she applied for an Envision Classroom Grant and won! The focus of the grant was to provide wireless headphones in the classroom setting.
Typically, headphones in a classroom get so much use on a daily basis, that the wires begin to pull out very easily. This causes schools to have to replace headphones annually to keep working headphones in the classroom. Since the class is able to use the wireless headphones, there is less of a distraction with students wanting to pull on and kink wires.
What's great about these wireless headphones is they also have a built in microphone. Ms. Delacenserie's student's work on a reading program that requires the students to read out loud. Through the use of the microphones built in to the headphones, the students are able to read to themselves and then replay their recording to listen for errors.
Ms. Delacneserie stated, "I think of Envision every single day when my students are on the computers and continue to be oh-so grateful for the grant!"
Stay tuned for more classroom grant winners, and remember, Stay Classy Tallahassee!
