University Sertoma Club Donates New Microphones
The University Sertoma Club has recently provided Lincoln Public Schools with new innovative technology that assists students in hearing their teacher, co-teacher, peers in small group discussions, and even intercom announcements.
Accessing teacher and peer communication in the classroom is vital to today’s learning in school. For students with hearing loss this can be difficult even with the use of hearing aids or cochlear implants.
These new microphones, called the Phonak Roger Touchscreen, allows students to not only hear their teachers, but also access small group discussions that are such an important part of today’s modern classroom
Our team would like to thank the University Sertoma Club for their amazing generosity with their donation of seven of these microphones, more than $5500, to help benefit students
