As many teachers know, engaging their students requires more than just teach them theory from the front of a classroom, but is better aided when getting them involved in the practical lessons being taught.

A great way to achieve this is by using various learning mediums to help them interface with the lesson at hand.

For this reason, audio-visual equipment and computer accessibility is a favorite tool of teachers who are looking to provide an immediate and tangible means of learning within the classroom. Teaching basic computer literacy skills, using online resources, and software packages geared to help format that learning is considered vital and worthwhile.

For this reason, LearningHeadphones.com is running an excellent back-to-school headphone sale, including almost all utilities you could want for helping your students interact with those lessons at hand.

Let’s take a moment and review how these products can help your students get the most out of their learning (as well as empowering you as a teacher).

Let’s consider this below:

 

The Benefits of Learning Headphones Products

Children may find it more difficult to interact with computers unless given age-appropriate instruction.

Learning Headphones makes sure to stock products that are not only comfortable for the ears of a child, but that can be used for hours without causing head or ear pains. This is achieved even more prominently via the use of properly sized flex-phones, which have been proven to be adjustable and comfortable to wear thanks to the pads at the top of the head and thick padding on each earcup.

A student wearing a headset with microphone can also interact with audio-permissive software to hear the instruction and engage in a solution. This is why many teachers find it healthy to allow children to directly interface with learning resources they can vet ahead of time.

Many headphones and headsets we offer are lightweight and portable. They can be used with many devices such as tablets, laptops, and even smaller, direct, proprietary learning e-tablets. Some offer standard 3.5mm connection jacks, while others offer USB, TARS, Dual Plug, and Bluetooth support.

 

What headphone types are available, and what’s right for my students?

This is a worthwhile question to ask, because not all headphones will be appropriate for all learning environments. For instance, it may be that on-ear headphones are better than over-ear applications if providing these to children with mild learning disabilities, as the latter can cover over an ear and function in a noise-cancelling sense, which can be uncomfortable for children who may not enjoy this sensation.

You may also use earbuds in your daily life, but these products are inadvisable in very young students. Also, transitioning in-ear product from child to child, even with regular disinfectant application, is simply not hygienic. There are disposable options, which are useful for one-time applications or testing, or you can assign one pair of earbuds per child so they can use them over and over.

The headphone options you may wish to consider include:

  • Earcup material - the materials that comprise your ear cushions can vary by product to product. Some of the most popular include silicone, rubber, foam, leatherette, and vinyl. The foam options typically are less expensive. These are great when they are not shared and can be assigned to an individual student. The other options are great if the headphone is going to be shared between students, as they can easily be cleaned in between uses.
  • Cord type - an often under looked feature, this is crucial to keep in mind when considering what kind of headphones are worth investing in and utilizing in a classroom setting. A PVC-jacketed cord or nylon braided cord, for instance, can be worthwhile and durable in a setting where hardiness is key. That said, headphones that have the Dura-cord are chew, kink and knot resistant, which is an excellent option to have with children. Also, check the specific cord length for each product. In some instances, you may want a longer cord if the students will need to move around a bit. However, you may also want a shorter cord so that it’s not a trip hazard or if you are afraid of the students playing with it too much.  You will know what is right for your own classroom.
  • Price - all products on Learning Headphones have been carefully priced to make sure that they are feasible for teachers managing educational departments.  There are cost effective headphones available if you have a limited budget. There are also very durable headphones that are built to last, even with the younger students.

 

Why is this sale special?

Our back-to-school savings sale helps you save big on a full line of classroom technology and audio-visual equipment. This can help teachers stretch their budget further as they hope to totally renew the classroom for learning.

Furthermore, many schools are now accepting children back despite the past year of on-again, off-again remote learning that took place in response to the Covid-19 pandemic and its associated lockdowns. For this reason, this sale is geared to helping teachers welcome their children back to the classroom after some time, in the most confident and celebratory manner possible.

While we specialize in headphones, that’s not all we sell. Computer and learning accessories have been proven to help assist in learning, and so we believe it’s important to stock products that are complimentary and can help in all practical applications throughout your learning modules.
