Elementary School Deploys Classroom Mics to Boost Confidence of Students
February 16, 2017
A Southern California school has added technology that enhances "audio clarity" in its classrooms. New River Elementary School in the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District has implemented microphones that hang around the necks of teachers and students to amplify their voices through a flat panel speaker.
According to Principal David Hoffman, the school used Title I funding to install the devices into all 17 of its classrooms. The cost was about $1,300 per room.
