The most essential part of establishing a makerspace is instilling a "maker mindset" with the students and staff. In 2015, I attended a makerspace-focused workshop. Upon my return, I suggested devoting half our library to the makerspace, and our administration didn’t bat an eye.

The first time I used my Redcat Presenter Kit was in dramatic circumstances. I was preparing to deliver a course on presentation skills for a corporate meeting, and I had 100 sales people flying in from all over the world. I had a two-hour session scheduled, but I got laryngitis the weekend before. I went to my doctor, who said he could give me something that might allow me to speak—but it had the risk of causing long-term damage.

How My School Uses Redcat:
As a high school English teacher, my lessons frequently involve class discussions with most of the comments made by students. For example, I recently used the Redcat when discussing chapters in the novel The Catcher in the Rye. I asked my students questions, then I then passed around the microphone so everyone in the room was able to clearly hear their comments, answers, and responses.

At Dogwood Elementary School in Heber, CA, where I am the principal, we use Redcat classroom audio systems to assist in teaching English learners. The system allows students to hear distinct sounds that are sometimes less audible during pronunciation. We find this is a tremendous benefit to beginning readers and students learning a new language.

How I Use Redcat:
I remember using my Redcat for the first time on the first day of school. The students were a little surprised to hear my voice coming from the back of the room even though I was standing in front of them. They instantly adjusted, and now I can’t imagine my classroom without an audio system.
