ESD: What is a Qball, and how will it help increase class- room participation? SC: The Qball is a throwable wireless microphone. Think of it as the 'Talking Stick' 2.0. The Qball is a fun, hands-on approach to encourage students to actively participate in classroom discussions. Just like the 'Talking Stick,' the Qball helps teachers manage classroom discussions, because if you have the Qball, you have the floor. The Qball is made of a soft, durable, lightweight foam that is made to be dropped, tossed or rolled. Teachers are constantly amazed at the Qball's ability to draw out those students that don't typically participate. ESD: Do kids really need a microphone?
