talk more! student desk speedometers
the dollar store has 1$ LCD calculators An Ething that measures the amount of student speech could encourage quieter students to contribute more
Fortunately they could sample this with phones duct taped to
desks to see if it actually works. Preferably the quieter students
voluntarily participate more
Also the software could be interesting
Perhaps some speakers have a multiplicative response effect
thus the display might urge these catalytic
speakers to speak up
There is also a feminist technology application. Teachers could
track what are published as gender asymmetric discussions then
automatically prompt more women or girls to speak up
It might be reassuring to some students to have their
"participation " grades quantifiable
||I kind of like the raw idea here, in some fashion; perhaps a
basic app in the classroom that could identify each child's
unique voice and simply display out a graph of who talked
the most and least so that the teacher could focus on
balancing them out somewhat. Quiet kids are going to be
quiet kids, but I'd bet that there is some practical bias in
the system as it stands now towards the more outgoing
