For teachers, the key benefits of the system were

judged to have been:

  • less repetition of instructions;
  • less vocal fatigue and tiredness;
  • improved ability to control and manage the class; leading to better behaviour;
  • more time to support individual and small groups of learners.

  • Phase 1 Flexcat research findings:
    • Provides excellent speech intelligibility to whole class in all spaces
    • Improves teacher monitoring and re-direction of small group collaborative working inside and outside the classroom
    • Less disturbance to group working when addressing one group
    • Faster support provided to small groups needing assistance
    • Improved small group feedback to whole class
    • Problems with teacher headsets, teachers’ ability to hear pupils sufficiently clearly and for pupils to be heard clearly when taking to the whole class identified but appear rectified in subsequent version of the Flexcat system.
