Easi-Ears, a new digital audio system designed for primary schools an nurseries. Comprising of a set of six different coloured headphones, remote control unit, docking station for recharging and software. Easi-Ears enables teachers to put their own audio content (e.g. in MP3 format) onto the headphones so that children can listen independently or as a group. The headphones are wireless, so children are not tied to a CD player, enabling them to be active whilst listening inside or outdoors.
The teacher's choice of audio content means that Easi-Ears can be used to support different areas of the curriculum, e.g. listening to stories, rhymes, poems and non-fiction text, instructions such as adding features to a map, creative music to inspire story writing, model making or painting pictures, or for outdoor treasure hunts and nature trails. It also means the set is usable by all ages and therefore of value throughout the school.
The audio content can be transferred onto the MP3 headphones via the Easi-Ears software. The software is designed so that teachers can create their own playlists and easily add the same content to all headphones or customise for individual headsets.
The remote control unit is designed for the teacher to enable them to interact with the headphones whilst in use. It is also a MP3 recorder/player and may be used by pupils to record their own audio tracks which can be transmitted directly to the headphones.
Unique broadcast feature - The remote control unit also haves the unique ability to interrupt play and broadcast voice or music to the headphones. This is particularly useful for the teachers should they wish to say something to the children whilst the headphones are in use, e.g. "5 minutes till tidy up time".
Includes FREE Audio Content To help get you started, Easi-Ears comes pre-loaded with the Kids & Co title, The New Playground from Rising Stars .
