Sound System

When we got our new Promethean Boards, we also got a surround sound system installed, so the sound fills every corner of the room, meaning all students can hear the same thing!

We also got a voice amplifier (which I’m not sure how I ever taught without!) and now when I wear it, my voice is amplified through the speakers.  It could be a microphone, but I’ve been told that if you hear yourself through the speakers when you are talking, you have the volume up too loud.

It’s been great this week since I have a cold, I don’t have to talk as loudly when talking with the kids.  I love wearing it when reading a story. 🙂

Here is another way I’ve been using it:

(Amplifier on left, iPhone on right)

I’ve been hooking my iPhone into the amplifier with a double ended headphone cord.  The music I play on my iPhone is then sent out through the speakers.  What Kindergarten teacher doesn’t have a little Chicka Chicka Boom Boom music on her iPhone? 🙂

I just put the amplifier around my neck, pick music, the put my iPhone in my pocket. 🙂

Anyone else using a voice amplifier with their Promethean Board?
