Are you making the most of your ESSER III funds? With Bluum's offering of award-winning AVID Products audio solutions, you can optimize learning outcomes, one headset at a time.
Do you need help determining which headset is most suitable for your students? In this in-depth guide, you can learn more about Bluum’s AVID headsets and the advantages they offer to K-12 students.
Superior Headsets, Superior Learning Experience
You can make great use of your ESSER grant by purchasing new headsets for your students. With more schools incorporating technology into their curricula, the need for high-quality headsets is more significant than ever. Headsets ensure students can hear teachers and classmates clearly, allowing for more effective communication and collaboration. They also help students hear audio from educational videos and other resources more clearly. Headsets can benefit K-12 teachers as well (and as you know, when teachers are set up for success, so are their students).
With a high-performing headset, it’s easier for teachers to listen to and understand students -- even those with the softest voices -- and provide clear, direct feedback. Teachers can also use headsets to conduct meetings and conferences with fellow educators, parents, administrators, and others.
Which headsets should you invest in with your ESSER III grant funds?
All of AVID’s headsets offer best-in-class safety with critical components designed to promote focus and wellness at school and home, including an easy-to-clean durable frame, molded and smooth edges, and chew-resistant cords. Providing affordability without sacrifice, all models provide high-quality sound, clear communication, and comfort. Ensuring that your students can stay focused, hear every word you have to say, and with noise-canceling microphones be heard when it’s their turn to talk, all of which are critical for testing and assessment success.
