Like me, I bet you didn’t know that a child’s auditory faculties are not fully developed until around age 15. Or that one-third of students between kindergarten and 3rd grade suffer some form of mild hearing loss. Listening is 75% of a child’s school day and the primary channel for learning. The simple truth, I learned when I joined Lightspeed, is that children who can hear clearly learn more.

How I Use Redcat:
I remember using my Redcat for the first time on the first day of school. The students were a little surprised to hear my voice coming from the back of the room even though I was standing in front of them. They instantly adjusted, and now I can’t imagine my classroom without an audio system.

How My School Uses Redcat:
As a high school English teacher, my lessons frequently involve class discussions with most of the comments made by students. For example, I recently used the Redcat when discussing chapters in the novel The Catcher in the Rye. I asked my students questions, then I then passed around the microphone so everyone in the room was able to clearly hear their comments, answers, and responses.
