As an educator, you know that keeping students engaged and focused during class is a challenging task. Distractions are everywhere, and it seems like students always find ways to drift away from the lesson.
With the ActiveInstruct™ latest feature, “Real-time distraction detection,” you can finally say goodbye to off-task behaviors and wasted class time.
What is Real-Time Distraction Detection?
This new feature utilizes a sophisticated algorithm to detect off-task behaviors in real time. It will flash a student's card on the teacher’s monitor when distracted behavior is detected.
Unlike traditional methods that only block access to specific websites, this feature detects off-task behaviors on non-blocked web pages. For example, if a student is accessing a music webpage instead of a math webpage, the system will flag it as a distraction.
How Effective is Real-Time Distraction Detection?
Based on the analysis of 1600+ class sessions, a total of 100 minutes per class period are spent engaged in off-task content (assuming 20 students in each class and each class session lasts 40 minutes).
However, with ActiveInstruct™ real-time distraction detection, time wasted during each class can be reduced by 63% or more. The system flags distracted students to the teacher, allowing them to intervene immediately and redirect the students' focus back to the lesson.
It's worth noting that 52% of all students went off-task on web pages not blocked by school policies, such as non-game web pages.
With ActiveInstruct™ real-time distraction detection, you can finally monitor and manage your students' online activities effectively.
How Can Real-Time Distraction Detection Help You?
This technology is truly cutting-edge, and it can make a significant difference in your classroom:
Save time: By reducing off-task behaviors, you can ensure that valuable class time is used for learning - not playing games.
Increase student engagement: Eliminating digital distractions helps students remain focused and engaged in lesson content.
Enhance student learning: Keeping students on-task in digital learning environments will improve student learning outcomes in class.
ActiveInstruct™ real-time distraction detection is a game-changer for classroom management. It's a powerful tool that can help you improve student engagement, save time, enhance learning outcomes and help students move towards a path of digital self-regulation. With this feature, you can finally take control of your classroom and ensure that your students stay on-task and focused.
