Class Improvement Using Directional Microphones
Selected Company: Hylable Inc.
Challenges In improving classes, it is essential to objectively understand the speech of teachers and students, recognize the problems, and make improvements. A solution that can visualize and analyze the behavior and speech of teachers and students as well as provide feedbacks would enable them to effectively learn techniques for improving classes.
Solution The team will provide “Hylable Discussion” - an egg-shaped microphone to visualize face-to-face discussions - to an elementary teacher training school and conduct a PoC to automatically visualize discussions held in classes. The device can analyze discussions automatically even in high noise environments with stable performance and give feedback based on the obtained data to teachers and students.
The Status of PoC
With the cooperation of the Ministry of Education and Human Development of Mozambique and the Institute for Teacher Training (IFP), the first PoC was held in July in a math class at the IFP. The PoC was a huge success, with the active cooperation of the teachers and 15 students.
The first PoC at the IFP
The second and third PoCs will be conducted in the same class and will analyze the changes in the classes and discussions using “Hylable Discussion”.
