In any piece of electronic equipment, durability is a key concern. It informs how often we need to replace items and dictates how careful we are in handing them out to people.
In a school where kids are regularly careless with things which don’t belong to them, the issue is compounded. It leads buyers to question the suitability of every purchase for their environment and, often, abandon their purchases entirely.
It’s why, when it comes to buying headphones for schools, we would always recommend buying heavy duty headphones. Designed to withstand careless hands and a day-to-day beating, they provide comfort and consistent function. But why do you need headphones in your school? Here are a few huge reasons:
Headphones Provide a Quiet Space
You might associate headphones with noise, but in reality, that’s not how many students use headphones.
Students, especially those with learning difficulties, are increasingly making use of headphones in order to block out outside noise and more fully concentrate on their studies. Whether they’re listening to music, an education podcast or simply using the insulation to dampen the noise of a busy classroom or library, headphones are an invaluable modern tool for students.
They Enable Learning at Different Speeds
Modern teaching is careful to take into account the various speeds at which students learn. Some are quicker than others and maintaining a balance between getting the most out of your most capable students and helping others is difficult.
Headphones can be used by teachers to put some students on a slightly different track than others, with dedicated computer exercises or custom lessons relayed through audio, without removing them from the learning environment entirely. It’s a function that only headphones can supply and is a large part of why headphones are considered a vital part of the modern learning environment.
Headphones Create New Learning Opportunities
The internet has fast become a valuable resource in the teaching world, with untold numbers of websites dedicated to providing innovative, exciting learning experiences for students.
Often featuring sound and video, these lessons are being used in classrooms across the country. They also rely on headphones to function effectively. By equipping your school with headphones, you enable thee experiences.
More than that though, with many of our heavy-duty headphones coming with in-line microphones, students are able to take their learning further than ever.
Imagine a language lesson where your students can compare their pronunciation against pre-recorded examples or a quick-fire English quiz which responds to your students’ voice.
All of these possibilities and more are enabled when a school is outfitted with a range of heavy-duty headphones, so why delay? Invest today and give your students the opportunity to learn to their capacity.
