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.

Engage

ENGAGE

The microphone lets teachers speak to the whole class, or have a two-way conversation with any small group.

Monitor

MONITOR

Teachers can be in six places at once to assess learning, ask questions, and redirect as needed.

Share

SHARE

Flexcat pods in up to twelve 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 twelve 2-way audio pods for small group instruction, giving teachers the ability to monitor the collaborative learning process and reinforce and redirect when needed.

Flexcat Audio Pods with Remote

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 12 student groups

Teachers use the remote to select and direct the audio to up to 12 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 flexibility classroom and even the hallway.
