Education previously focused on remembering facts and often cramming the night before the exam. Today, all the information ever discovered is now amazingly accessible on a small device in your pocket. As such, learning today is about more than just absorbing and memorising information, with bored, inactive and disengaged students missing out. How ?
When students are disengaged they struggle to focus and aren’t actively thinking about the material being taught. Thus leading to lower knowledge retention and an inability to think critically, a necessary ability for higher learning.
Inactive students who don’t participate in class also don’t learn how to argue and discuss points and ideas, which is a vital skill required in today’s workforce.
When students are inactive, they are bored and hence don’t associate learning with fun. This limits their motivation to learn in and outside the classroom, or worse, attend class in the first place.
Easy to throw to anyone at a moment’s notice, the Catchbox ensures all students are actively thinking about the learning material. This not only helps to increase knowledge retention, but also develops critical thinking by encouraging students to formulate answers and arguments in case the box happens to land on them.
Easy to throw even to the back of the Class, Catchbox ensures everyone the opportunity to participate in the discussion and simultaneously develop greater confidence and communication skills. By amplifying speech and sound, quiet students are also given a voice that isn’t drowned out by louder participants.
The playful nature of the colourful Catchbox quickly breaks the ice and lightens the mood in class, making participation fun as opposed to compulsory. The act of throwing and catching the box also adds an element of physical activity to learning, creating a desired change of pace from just sitting and listening.
The Catchbox comes in two different formats to accommodate your personal needs and sound system requirements; whether it be just a small classroom of only 20 students, or a lecture theatre of several hundred, the Catchbox can be connected with ease. (See different Versions for Details)
The Catchbox is made from a combination of durable light foams and technical fabrics, making it extremely light for its size as well as durable. All the hard electronic components are hidden inside, ensuring that dropping and throwing the device won’t damage the unit or the person catching it.
No new teaching technology or tool is effective if students don’t know how to use it. This is why educators love the Catchbox, because it doesn’t require elaborate explanations, downloads, or manuals to understand; It’s just like a normal wireless microphone only you can throw it!
To avoid unwanted noises caused from throwing and dropping, Catchbox comes with a patent pending technology called Automute. Automute senses the motion of the Catchbox and temporarily switches off the audio when the device is thrown, caught or dropped.
With our Custom Cover Service you can flawlessly integrate your school’s brand, logo or moto onto the 4 sides of the Catchbox.
