Q&A/ShareTime with Qball

Help me give my students a Qball throwable microphone for our classroom! I hope to increase student participation and overall classroom collaboration with a Qball!

My Students

My students come from all backgrounds and attend a STEAM school, where we integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math into core curriculum units that we teach each marking period. In my classroom, we try to use Art to help educate and motivate our students with higher level thinking activities. This Spring, my students will be acting/directing skits to review the 4th-grade curriculum.

Give my students a Qball for increased engagement!

Many of my students are shy or don't speak at a volume where everyone can hear them during ShareTime. With Qball, I see my students collaborating and discussing in class at a whole new level!

My Project

My students like to share and participate, but cannot be heard by their classmates. Many of my students do not speak loudly, so classroom presentations can be difficult for other students to focus on.

My students need a Qball to increase classroom participation and classroom collaboration!

Sharing during STEAM projects and reading is crucial for my students overall academic development. With Qball, the classroom can tune in and engage in the conversation.

The Qball will be great to use during any question and answer session, sharetalk/ turn and talk, or other classroom activity that lends itself to enhancement by using the throwable microphone.
