Califone's 1886PLC-6 Spirit SD Multimedia Player/Cassette Recorder and Stereo Learning Center is teacher-tested to support reading activities, language learning, ESL, foreign language instruction, and ELL/ELD programs associated with the English Language Arts portion of the Common Core State Standards. You'll appreciate the flexibility in a learning center that's equally versatile for music and movement classes or read-alongs in independent study. The 2 watts of the Spirit SD are powerful enough for up to 40 people to hear content in a typical room for whole class learning.
Adaptable to different situations, the Spirit SD multimedia player/recorder supports many different formats - AM/FM radio, cassette and a top-loading CD player. It also features USB and SD ports so student or teacher-generated content can be played back for the entire class to hear. The built-in microphone on the Spirit SD records student responses for later playback and helps monitor student progress with lessons and reading practice. It's made with rugged ABS plastic to withstand the rigors of daily school use and has recessed speakers to prevent accidental damage in busy classrooms.
An included 10-person stereo jackbox can be connected to the 3.5mm headphone plug to use the Spirit SD as a learning center for a small group of differentiated learners to listen through connected headphones without disrupting the rest of the class. Six pairs of switchable stereo/mono headphones with snap-on 1/4" adapters and a carrying case for the system are also included.
