Catchbox Throwable Mics can be a fun way to encourage student participation in a classroom. Instructional techniques where students toss a ball to indicate who is speaking are very common in small, discussion based classrooms - similarly the foam Catchbox acts as a moderation and motivation tool for the students. Having discussions in a large instructional space always comes with challenges, such as making sure only one person is talking at a time, and of course the need for both you and the other students to be able to hear what students around the room are trying to say. Adding a mic, or even multiple mics in a large auditorium, helps address these issues.
