ActiveInstruct™ New Feature: Real-Time Distraction Detection

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.
