PA300 Case Study, Marietta GA

Presentation Systems Need Quality Speakers
to Bring Digital Resources to Life


Case Study:
Daniell Middle School
Marietta, Georga

Issue
Located in Marietta, Georgia, outside of Atlanta, Daniell Middle School has projector systems and laptop computers installed in multiple classrooms for teachers to use during whole class instruction. Serving nearly 1,000 middle school students in grades 6-8, educators and staff understand the role technology can play in engaging today’s media-savvy students.

As the school’s media specialist, Sara Harris, knew that a projector and laptop combination required a quality speaker system that would allow the entire class to hear what is being played or presented. “As an example, many of our teachers use Georgia Public Broadcast Education Streaming to view educational videos. It is critical that all students in the class hear the digital content being streamed,” Harris explained.

Implementation
Harris and her team decided to purchase the Califone® PresentationPro™ (PA300+) speakers. The PresentationPro speaker provides Daniell Middle School educators with high-quality audio support, while seamlessly connecting to any LCD projector, interactive whiteboard, multimedia player, DVD/VCR, or computer for enhanced visual and audio learning.

The PresentationPro line of speakers is available as installed or portable, wired or wireless, and can be used for indoor or outdoor functions. A PresentationPro unit accepts one wireless and two wired microphones at the same time, offers a 16-channel UHF microphone receiver, and has a line output to additional wired speakers for larger presentations.

Complete wired and wireless systems include one PresentationPro speaker, a wireless volume/mute remote control with a choice of a hands-free or a handheld wireless microphone, and an optional tripod and hard or soft carrying case. These features allow educators to seamlessly transition from one activity to another without disrupting class participation.

Results
“We chose the PresentationPro speakers from Califone because they were portable and so easy to install,” Harris said. Most units were placed in the library as well as science and social studies classrooms, while others are used in the school’s theater and gym for use during events. “The reactions from our educators have been really positive; some of our staff members who don’t have them want them, which is always nice to hear,” she concluded.

About 12 percent of all preK-12 students in the United States are considered English language learners.
