More and more teachers in my district have been creating digital stories with students, using any number of software programs and web applications.  We've learned a number of things through these projects, including:
  • our computers don't like headsets that use the standard audio and microphone jacks - for whatever reason, it's hit or miss whether a headset of this type will work
  • USB headsets seem to solve most of these problems, so long as the computer recognizes the headset correctly
My question is, what headset should we buy?  There's a range of prices, all more expensive than standard jack models, and it stings a bit more when a $30 headset breaks.  I'd like to send two recommendations to our administration team - one inexpensive, moderately reliable model that's easily replaced and one sturdy, high-quality model that would hold up over time but probably cost more.

What's working for you all?  

Thanks!!
