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?
