People love to be active, especially kids. Students love playing with balls and catching things. Many don’t like speaking up in discussions. Catchbox recognized this and decided to put catching right in the middle of discussions, conference q&a’s and anytime there’s a need for participation through verbal feedback.
Catchbox is a soft, throwable microphone. The concept is simple, throw the catchbox to a student and then they can be heard to answer a question. It’s easy to use Catchbox when students raise their hands or to pick students to participate by just throwing the Catchbox to them.
We all know that inactive students don’t learn nearly as well as active participants. Using the Catchbox in the classroom activates students in ways no other device ever could. Using Catchbox even quiet students engage more. The wireless microphone means that quiet students can be heard. Using Catchbox in the classroom lights up the room.
Catchbox comes in two different versions. One is designed for small classrooms and the other is designed for larger halls and bigger PA systems, the perfect way to get audiences to participate during a conference, or students to participate in an assembly.
The Catchbox is made from a combination of light foams and technical fabrics making it extremely light and extremely durable. If the Catchbox accidentally hits a student in the head, it’s not going to hurt. It’s also simple to operate, once it’s turned on you just throw and go. Their patented automute technology mutes the microphone when Catchbox is airborne and then unmutes once it’s caught. This eliminates extra noise and feedback.
Catchbox is being used in elementary schools, high schools, college campuses and even at Fortune 500 companies. In every use case, users say there’s a large increase in participation because Catchbox makes it fun.
