The Qball is a soft throwable microphone designed to be used in a classroom setting. We are interested in adding one to each classroom for a total of 10. It will plug into our existing sound amplification system
Qball benefits student engagement and increases student participation in classroom conversations. The Qball amplifies the student's voice so every student can benefit from hearing and understanding their peers clearly.
The success of this program would be measured by an increase in student engagement in class. This is something that can be observed as well as measured in an increase in meeting speaking and listening standards.
These will be used right away in all of the classrooms.
Yes, we do see opportunities to use them in a collaborative setting with other classes as well.
Site funds for this item are not currently available. We could ask our PTC for a portion of the grant.
