Lesson Capture Software from FrontRow
Flipping, screen casting, and blended learning are powerful ways to teach, but who has time to learn how to use the recording software, sit down, record, edit, title, and post these videos?
FrontRow Juno® solves this problem by doing the work for you. You can literally record, title, and share screencasts in minutes without ever touching your computer. Simply say ‘begin’ to start recording a video of all the content on your interactive whiteboard or your computer screen, plus clear voice and media audio. When done, just say ‘finish.’ Juno will automatically title your video with the right name and subject, then post it where you need it to go. Kids who missed class can catch up immediately, and students who want a refresher can view the lesson again — on practically any device, including Windows® or Mac®, smart phones, and more. Juno is so easy, it finally makes flipping your classroom practical.
A sound field or classroom amplification is a sound system specifically intended for classroom use. A system usually consists of a microphone and transmitter, speakers and/or personal FM hearing receivers. The positioning of the speakers in the classroom is key to sound distribution. A sound field enables every student to hear.
Benefits of Classroom Audio
Originally developed for hearing-impaired or ADHD students, significant benefits have been realized for ALL students and teachers in a sound field classroom. These include: increased academic performance, speech understanding, reduction in vocal fatigue, reduced teacher absenteeism, and student on-task behavior.
