Phonak Audio Systems
History of Phonak at Riverdale
Phonak Roger SoundField systems were installed in every classroom at the Lower School three years ago. Over the summer of 2019, systems were installed in all classrooms in Hackett Hall, in the Mayo Lab, and in room 5101 in the Science Annex.
Instructions on how to use the Phonak System
An instructional video about how to use the Roger Touchscreen Mic can be found here: Roger Touchscreen Mic video
Note: This video has information after the 3-minute mark which does not apply to our use at Riverdale.
Key things to remember:
Mute the Roger Touchscreen Mic whenever you are:
- talking individually with a student in your classroom;
- outside of the classroom, either to visit another classroom, office, or when you visit the restroom.
We have posted handy warning notices on faculty room doors, most restroom doors, and inside restrooms where it they may be more visible.
Power down the Roger Touchscreen Mic at the end of the school day, and make sure to plug in the charging cable to charge overnight. (Classrooms with team teachers with have two Roger Touchscreen Mics in a multi-bay charger.) Please do not power down the Phonak speakers themselves.
The Roger Touchscreen Mics hang from a wall-mounted hook adjacent to the Phonak speaker for easy access. Please put the mic back on the hook, or in the charging base, when you are finished using it.
