Califone International, Inc. now offers a series of headsets with mobile learning capabilities. The new To Go™ headsets enable educators to extend audio technology to the latest mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones running iOS® or Android®.

More than 68 percent of educators responding to a recent online poll on Califone.com reported that their students listen to audio on mobile learning devices most of the time. Compatible with tablets, e-readers, gaming systems, smart phones and other mobile learning devices, the Califone headsets can be used for a wide range of instructional applications, such as educational gaming across the curriculum and music applications.

The headsets also are well-suited to flipped learning environments, allowing students to hear recorded teacher instructions clearly for increased engagement and collaboration. When used with mobile devices that have recording capabilities, the To Go headsets enable student responses to be recorded and played back for activities that support language and literacy development, differentiated group learning, student-created podcasts, and teacher-student participation in Google+ hangouts.

All Califone headsets are constructed out of durable, high-quality materials to better withstand student use. Mobile compatibility through the optional To Go plug is available on the Discovery™ Headset (DS-8VT), Deluxe Multimedia Headset (3066AV-T), Titanium™ Series Headset (HPK-1010T), Lightweight Stereo Headset (3065AV-T) and the 4100 Series Headset (4100AV-T).

Califone Extends Capabilities of Popular Headsets to Mobile Learning Devices

For many years, educational media devices utilized dual jacks for headsets that enabled high-quality sound for listening and for recording. However, the latest smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices, such as the iPhone and iPad, use only one 3.5 mm plug and a built-in mic, which limits sound quality. Additionally, most consumer-oriented headsets are not made to withstand rigorous use in the classroom and media labs, or provide hearing protection and safety features for children, or offer a warranty that covers school use. To meet educators' needs, Califone has extended the capabilities of its most popular headsets designed for education - including the washable Titanium series of headsets - to be compatible with today's mobile devices through the To Go plug option. According to a recent online poll, 68 percent of respondents reported that students listen to and/or record audio most of the time in 1:1 and group learning activities. Califone also offers jackboxes to help turn one iPad into a group learning experience in which each student can use a headset or headphone.
