active participation from all
Listening is where language teachers really see a difference when using Captur.
In the broadest sense of listening, we mean that we want all of the students to listen to what we're saying, all the time. Too often in language classes, students are tempted to shift their attention away from the teacher if the students feel that they're not going to be held personally responsible for paying attention. For example, if I call on Junichi to answer a question, he may then feel "off the hook" for the next question that I pose to the class, because he's pretty sure that I won't call on him again without calling on some other students first.
With Captur, though, every student can be told to respond to every question, and thus we motivate them to pay attention to what's being said. Please explore this site further for specific ideas on using Captur with listening activities in language classes.
