After the overhaul of our ICT Lab, all the teachers I have spoken to have felt the layout is much better for teaching and learning, and I think we all agree that it looks much cleaner and brighter in white (thank you Jutta and Heather!).
The final step has now been completed, so that headphones are now stored on hooks at the front of the classroom, behind the teacher desk.
I hope that this will reduce unnecessary wear and tear on the headphones, as well as preventing students from wearing them when they do not need to, which is distracting for students and teachers alike.
If you need to use the headphones during your lesson, please hand them out and have the students hang them back up again on the hooks at the end of class. In case they are unsure where to plug them in, the jack goes into the input on the side of the monitor, shown below, and they will very quickly learn how to do this when it is needed.
Please let me know if you have any feedback or have any issues, for example with cables or other practical concerns and I will work to find a solution.
