Inactive Students Don’t Learn
Education used to be focused on remembering facts and often cramming the night before a test. Now, all the information ever created is accessible on a device in your pocket. As such, learning today is about more than memorising, and bored, inactive students, are missing out. How ?
They Aren't Thinking Critically
When students are disengaged they aren't focused and aren't actively thinking about the teaching material. This leads to lower knowledge retention and an inability to think critically, a necessary ability for higher learning.
They Don’t Learn To Communicate
Inactive students who don’t participate in class also don’t learn how to argue and discuss their points, skills required in today's workforce.
They Aren't Motivated to Learn
When students are inactive, they are bored and hence don’t associate learning with fun. This limits their motivation to learn outside the classroom, or worse, attend class in the first place.
The soft throwable microphone that increases classroom participation and student engagement
Increases Student Engagement
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 increases knowledge retention, but also develops critical thinking by encouraging students to formulate answers and arguments in case the box happens to land on them.
Develops Communication Skills
Easy to throw even to the back of the Class, Catchbox ensures everyone gets to participate in the discussion and simultaneously, develop their argumentation and communication skills. By amplifying sound and acting as a speaking totem, quiet students are also given a voice that isn’t drowned out by louder participants.
Makes Learning Fun & Active
The playful nature of the colourful Catchbox easily breaks the ice and lightens the mood in class, making attendance fun as opposed to compulsory. The act of throwing and catching also adds physical activity to learning, creating a desired change of pace from just sitting.
Designed for 21st Century Education
Works With Any Sound System & Class Size
The Catchbox comes in two versions to accommodate for different types of sound systems and use cases; whether it be a small classroom of 20 students, to a lecture hall of several hundred, the Catchbox can be connected with ease. (See different Versions for Details)
Light & Soft
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 device or the person catching.
Simple & Easy to Use
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 but you 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.
Customise & Make it Your Own
With our Custom Cover Service you can flawlessly integrate your school's brand or any other graphics onto the 4 sides of the Catchbox.
