This week, eSchool News Editors took a closer lok at various AV solutions currently available to the Education Marketplace, choosing 20 to feature for its readers. For the complete list, please visit eSchool news for the full story!
Lightspeed Technologies unveiled a portable audio system, called FLEXCAT, that can facilitate instruction in small group settings. The system consists of a teacher headset with microphone, and tabletop speakers for student groups placed throughout the classroom.
The system allows the instructor to transmit her voice to all speakers, or only to specific ones—so she can direct her comments to certain students without disturbing the whole class. A listening component enables the instructor to hear what students are saying during their group work, so she can facilitate discussion or assess the students’ interaction from anywhere in the room.
