No Need to Shout!

WIBW reminds us of one simpe but effective technological innovation in schools: microphones.

Here’s one example:

“Emily Sorensen teaches first grade at Nottingham Elementary School in Eudora. A wireless microphone around her neck sent her voice to a receiver near her desk, then through a speaker in the back of her classroom.

Sorensen said that during the month she used the system, her pupils did better on spelling tests and she didn’t have to repeat herself as often to be heard.”
