Red Deer’s Annie L. Gaetz School is looking for old iPods

Red Deer’s Annie L. Gaetz School is looking for old iPods to use in their classrooms.

Red Deer’s Annie L. Gaetz School is looking for old iPods and/or iPod Nanos to use in their classrooms.

The devices will be used to play music in support of their zones of regulation program, a program designed to recognize when students are dealing with high levels of emotion.

“Some of our students get really agitated so we are trying to get them to recognize when their emotions are high. We will be using the iPods as a tool for calming and centring the students before they get to the point where all heck breaks loose,” said Karen Kenny, Grade 5 teacher for Annie L. Gaetz School.

The iPods and iPod Nanos will be used for both Grade 4 and 5 classrooms.

Kenny said if changes are seen in the students, the school will consider applying the method to every grade throughout the school.

The iPods can be dropped off at their main office any time during school hours.
