Lightspeed’s instructional Audio and Video Solutions reveal hidden insights to learning that are otherwise missed by students and teachers. It’s time to build listening into the learning environment.
We have identified three aspects of the learning process where the ability to listen and ultimately learn, are at risk due to changes in instruction and the learning environment. In each of these, Lightspeed reveals critical insights needed for learning that are otherwise hidden from teachers and students.
Engage the whole class.
Improve speech intelligibility and provide an even distribution of sound so that students hear, understand, and gain insights even in a less than perfect acoustic environment. Our vision is to have every child hear every word.
Activate group learning
Teachers must be able to listen as well. This is particularly difficult in today’s active, flexible classroom. Activating learning can only come from receiving important feedback from students on how they are progressing. Lightspeed gives teachers tools to listen in on student groups providing them with insights they need to assess student needs in real-time.
Collaborate and grow. Teachers need the ability to listen to their own teaching for self-reflection and listen to the teaching of others to learn new techniques and methods. Insights shared among teachers through coaching, exemplars and professional learning communicates elevate everyone’s skills.

Come to this session to experience how the Activate System can reveal hidden insights in small group learning.
