A Breakthrough for Small Group Learning
Flexcat is the only classroom audio system designed for small group learning. It allows the teacher to monitor from a distance, giving students the opportunity to feel independent and productive, yet confident that the teacher is still there for support if needed.
The microphone lets teachers speak to the whole class, or have a two-way conversation with any small group.
Teachers can be in six places at once to assess learning, ask questions, and redirect as needed.
Flexcat pods in up to six small groups allow students to interact with their teacher and share with the whole class.
Collaborative Learning Builds Stronger Classes
Marzano discusses the conditions for successful collaborative learning and places emphasis on the fact that true collaborative learning requires planning and monitoring to ensure the goals of student learning and understanding are achieved.
While this instructional strategy presents challenges for teachers, Flexcat is there with a solution to keep teachers connected with students in real-time:
Loss of classroom management control
The teacher remains in control, keeping tabs on multiple groups regardless of location
Loss of connection to individuals, small groups
The teacher maintains a "pulse point" on all groups simultaneously
Inability to service multiple students at once
The teacher can easily service multiple groups at once and be called by groups as needed
Loss of time productivity
No more wait time for the teacher to notice a group has a question or needs to be redirected
The Only Audio System Designed for Small Groups
Flexcat consists of up to six 2-way audio pods for small group instruction, giving teachers the ability to monitor the collaborative learning process and reinforce and redirect when needed.
Teacher microphones to talk and listen
The teacher wears a small, pendant microphone with an earbud to monitor student groups. Add a second mic for team-teaching.
Facilitate learning with up to 6 student groups
Teachers use the remote to select and direct the audio to up to 6 student groups as well as the entire room through the Access classroom speaker.
Forget about the cables...it's wireless
The microphones, remotes and pods are all wireless and battery powered providing maximum flexibilty in the classroom and even the hallway.
Add Flexcat to any Access Technology System
Access Technology powers a full range of classroom audio solutions. They all deliver interactive audio for whole class instruction, small groups and collaborative learning. All systems connect with Flexcat pods, and seamlessly work together for easy scalability.
