Learning and development

Research tells us that there is a link between language exposure and child development. Being immersed in a language-rich environment (talking, reading aloud, music, etc.) plays a pivotal role¹. In challenging classroom conditions with noise, distance and poor acoustics, Roger assistive listening devices can support children's learning and language development.

  • Provide better speech recognition for students²
  • Improve opportunities for learning and communication for students³

Made for students and teachers

The best learning happens when students can hear clearly, and teachers can talk at a comfortable level. The Roger for Education hearing care solutions are designed to address these challenges and create an optimal learning environment for everyone.

Overcome barrier of noise

While Roger wireless microphones provide noise reduction, they also use an adaptive behavior. Meaning if the noise level increases, the volume of the Roger system automatically increases, so the speaker's voice is heard above the noise.

Overcome barrier of distance

Featuring powerful sound wireless technology, Roger microphones can help teachers communicate from wherever in the classroom without distance restrictions. This helps to reduce vocal strain for teachers4.

User-friendly and intuitive

With fully automatic functions, there is minimal need to adjust settings. The right microphone mode is automatically chosen based on the orientation of the device.

Hear multiple talkers

Several Roger wireless microphones can be used together, providing children access to multiple talkers to ensure they can hear everyone speaking or instructional media sources.

Roger Touchscreen

Roger™ Touchscreen Mic

When worn around the neck, the Roger Touchscreen Mic transmits the teacher's voice directly to the student’s hearing device as well as to the Roger DigiMaster, helping to hear in noisy situations. When placed on the table, this wireless microphone switches to a small group interaction mode, allowing children to better understand their peers and participate in classrooms.¹
