CAPTUR is an acronym for Class Answer Paddle To Understand Responses. It is a hand-held tool for students, which has been developed jointly by Paul Shimizu and Bill Pellowe.

My initial reason for being involved in developing CAPTUR came about from discussions with Bill. At first I simply wanted something that would encourage more student participation and involvement with the view to getting more attentive listening from my students. I also wanted something decidedly low-tech, which would fit in with my general philosophy of being organic. Organic education for me is being in the classroom with very basic tools whilst attempting to stay in the focus of my students and having the students in my focus.
