Using the Device Stand
Within the Audio Kit are a Device stand, wedge and a Bluetooth microphone.
Device Stand Instructions & Guidance
- The device stand is designed to be a simple solution when you don't have a tripod or holder for your recording device.
- If your device doesn't make a tight fit in the stand then use the wedge to ensure your device is stable
- Only use if you are confident the device is safe in the stand and won't fall out/over
Device stand and wedge
Example of using the wedge
Positioning your Device
Location: Select a corner of the room
Angle: Use the widest angle possible
Height: Place the camera at roughly eye level of children
Here is an example of a classroom and suggested placement locations for your recording device
Positioning the Microphone
We recommend the microphone is either clipped to your clothing or a lanyard, about 6 inches below the chin (mid-chest)
Be aware that items such as lanyards/jewelry can rub and bump the microphone so you may need to remove those to prevent loud noises and interference.
