"We have only started using the lesson box equipment this term but it has already been used with KS1 and 2 classes. Teachers have videoed their lessons and watched them back with a member of SLT as an alternative to a lesson observation. Teachers who are new to year groups have also recorded parts of the school day to evaluate their effectiveness and impact on the children's learning. We are looking to use this across the whole school for coaching purposes and also upload high quality clips from particular lessons to the media space for teachers to use for CPD."
"Had a great demo, very innovative and will be a great addition to our CPD programme. Looking forward to finding some funds for this!"
"We use it throughout the school as part of staff led CPD programme. A very effective tool to use."
"I am new to Lessonbox and although some teachers have been trained, it hasn't been fully utilised. As a school, we are looking at different forms of CPD, and Lessonbox is one that we are hope to use. Following on from the training, I have had lots of staff interested in using the equipment in their classrooms.... we are looking forward to tying it out!"
"Mark completed a fantastic demo that catered perfectly to our specific needs. He was very helpful and friendly and even stuck around to answer questions."
"All in all a very good piece of equipment and good value for money.
Our first experience involved a free demonstration without the typical pushy salesman routine. We were simply shown the equipment, presented with the options and left to make a decision in our own time.
The equipment is easy to set up, as discreet as can be and very portable. The concept has even been proven with one of our so-called 'non techy' teachers; who was able to set up the equipment independently by following the instructional video provided.
If I were to make one minor complaint, it would be the Mirasys software used for playback. Whilst it's fairly self explanatory and ticks all the boxes, I've found it can be a bit awkward the when skipping through the playback, searching for a particular event. That being said, footage can be easily exported and then observed through any decent media player.
All in all, a comfortable 4.5 stars (5 isn't real!). I would definitely recommend to another school"
"Lessonbox equipment is discreet and students soon forget it is there. That means we can get a real sense of the classroom experience (perhaps even more than if someone is in with a clipboard). It is invaluable for recording our speaking assessments for English and it gives us the quality we require. It is a great tool for reflection and has been used for supporting teachers at all career stages."
"Having used Lessonbox for a number of years now we have always been really pleased with the quality of service and equipment used. As our Academy has grown we have added to our original CCTV monitoring system and have always found that any new instalments are completed quickly and effectively and without any disruption to our existing system.
Thank you Lessonbox for your outstanding service."
"Staff were very helpful and professional and knowledgeable about the product they were demonstrating. The gentleman who did the initial demonstration was also incredibly sensitive to the needs of the class that was being filmed."
"So far we have been impressed with ease of use, training given and price!"
"I saw the Lesson Box stand at the Birmingham Inspiring Leaders conference and was very impressed. I have been looking for a easy to use video tool but found them too expensive for our school. Lesson Box came into school and gave us an excellent demo. It convinced me that it was just what we needed to use with our trainees and NQTs."
"We have enjoyed working with the kit. We have maximised it's potential by filming outstanding teaching and learning in class and sharing the findings with whole staff."
"As a teacher trainer it is necessary to have an effective camera that allows trainees to see their own teaching and reflect with guidance on how to improve. The Lessonbox is one of the most easiest and effective systems to use in the classroom for an variety of activities. It easy to assemble, set and then use. If I can do it then anyone can! We have not required any further support from Lessonbox but I am confident that if we do the service will exemplary. It has been a pleasure doing business with Lessonbox and the equipment is exactly what we need."
"Lesson Box is a great tool to support the continual improvement of teachers at Featherstone High School. Providing a unique way for teachers to reflect on their classroom practice and ultimately deliver better lessons."
"We have cameras in every class which helps us with our professional development and safeguarding."
"It enabled staff to self evaluate and be coached to develop their practice. It has proved to be very easy to use and easy to move from class to class. Teachers are able to decide on a focus and set up the cameras and microphones to record what they specifically want to find out. The software enables easy viewing and with the different perspectives available it has allowed to teachers to understand better the impact of their teaching on the learning in the class. It also allows best practice to be shared with others. It is so powerful when a specific aspect of teaching can be exemplified and recorded for all to see.
It has also proved to be a powerful tool in showing children their learning habits within a lesson. They are not always aware of their own behaviour. Lessonbox has enabled purposeful dialogue between teachers and their classes."
"Lessonbox has been an invaluable resource in supporting us, as a school, to secure more opportunities to develop reflective practice across the school. It has enabled us to expand our CPD programme which have positively impacted upon teaching, learning and outcomes."
"The easy to use and high quality filming system has meant that the majority of staff are now filming themselves, analysing the films and becoming better teachers as a result.
Other systems we had used often failed and this lost us the confidence of the teaching staff. As lesson box is more reliable and it provides high quality video and audio - teachers across the school are now really seeing the value of micro teaching and are integrating it into their practice.
Our ICT support technicians are delighted with the system as it is quick and easy to set up for staff.
Teachers analysing their own behaviour in the classroom is essential to really improving teaching and learning. Lessonbox is an easy and high quality way of enabling them to do this."
