Teacher Sees Academic Improvement After Adding Headphones Made Possible By Foundation Grant
The Fort Dodge Middle School added headphones to Rebecca Gascho’s 5th grade classroom thanks to gifts to the Fort Dodge Community Schools Foundation. She added the $720 headphones in the Fall of 2018.
“We’ve noticed a big improvement in behavior and academics," said Gascho.
Gascho said students enjoying doing assignments when they are allowed to use the headphones. Each student has their own Chromebook and the headphones work with those Chromebooks.
Student say they enjoy the talk-to-text feature. They also use the headphones to listen to music and videos, do reports and make their own videos.
