With the full version of Minecraft: Education Edition due for release in early November, classroom gaming headsets are in high demand. How do you decide which gaming headset to purchase? Fortunately, there some great “convertible” options designed for classroom use when gaming programs are being utilized and even when they’re not.
Gaming Headset Options
Why are gaming headsets more costly? Most gaming headsets include detachable inline gaming controls, premium surround sound, separate game and audio chat, and cushioned ear cups that diminish external distractions. USB plugs are standard for gaming headsets and increase the price per unit for inclusion of the complex USB wiring technology. Some headsets offer multiple plugs for connection to a wider range of PC’s, laptops, tablets and devices.
The AVID Education CD-858MF even offers vibration, flashing lights and enhanced sound for an immersive 3D experience. Califone offers both a deluxe (Califone GH507) and lighter weight (Califone GH131) edition of their gaming headsets. There’s even a gaming headset specifically designed for collaborative gaming on XBox One and XBox 360 called GameRush by HamiltonBuhl. All can be used for educational gaming and regular classroom use (e.g., language learning software, listening labs, video editing and testing).
New Minecraft Features
Utilizing gaming headsets that are specifically designed for classroom use will maximize the options and features offered in the new Minecraft: Education Edition. Some of these new features include:
- Classroom Mode will allow educators to manage world settings, communicate with students, give items to students and teleport them in the Minecraft world. It displays a map view of the Minecraft world, a list of all the students in the world, a set of world management settings and a chat window. There is even a Minecraft clock to show time of day in the world. Classroom Mode offers educators the ability to interact with students and manage settings from a central user interface.
- The Education Edition will also include leads and horses, additional player skins, pistons and the remainder of Redstone functionality, plus an updated user interface.
If your school site or classroom is considering adopting the new Minecraft: Education Edition for game-based learning, make sure to research gaming headset options that are designed for classroom use, maximize your investment, and offer multi-purpose utilization.
