San Fernando, Calif. (Feb. 5, 2014) – Having tools to aid lesson comprehension is a key factor in a student’s ability to achieve desired learning goals. Califone International, Inc., a leader in the design, development and manufacturing of audiovisual (AV) and supplemental curriculum products for use in education, offers headphones and headsets that help students build the speaking and listening skills defined as critical components in the English Language Arts (ELA) portion of the Common Core State Standards.
