As mobile learning is increasingly applied to day-to-day classroom applications as well as for testing, headsets need to be similarly compatible to successfully capture vocal responses and connect with the devices.
The To Go stereo headsets with their unique plug can do just that by allowing students to both listen to and record audio directly onto their smartphones, tablets, and iOS or Android-based mobile devices. This is particularly important as states prepare to meet the online testing requirements within the upcoming Common Core Standards.

Of the five recently launched To Go headsets, the 3065AVT is the lightest and the only one with on-ear earcups. Use of this headset with mobile devices provides comfort and flexibility for differentiated instruction in literacy, language learning and capturing vocal responses during critical foreign language testing. The boom mic on each To Go headset is optimized for the mid-range tonalities of the human voice and translates each response into the connected device as a digital .wav file. The digital audio recordings can be used for to track student progress, be emailed to parents and be used for podcasting with their peers for an interactive learning experience. Students participating in flipped classroom environments and distance learning programs can also benefit from the To Go headsets by listening to previously recorded instructions for learning with interactive content.
Contest Rules: Only one 3065AVT To Go headset per conference attendee. You must be present to collect your prize. The contest is limited to the first 50 winners each day and to available stock on hand.
