Students and Headphones....
Is it just me, or do computer activities with students and headphones/mic's rarely work? Half the time, the headphones just get broken, students plug them into the wrong sockets, the system sound settings get changed/muted by students in the lesson previously, and even if I lock them down, the students find a way around the restrictions to fiddle with the sound settings. Sorry for the rant, but getting to the end of my tether here!
We have bought robust headphones which cost more, but they still get broken, and we then end up getting cheap headphones, and replacing them very often, and at great cost to the school!
If someone else has had similiar problems, speak up and let me know.
