In today's modern classroom, students have dozens of distractions vying for their attention. Boredom and disengagement are constant problems in the traditional classroom setting, and now students are consumed with ever increasing screen time as opposed to interacting with their teachers and peers. mcSquares enhance student learning experiences through haptic and kinesthetic learning, as well as allowing students to engage with each their classmates as well as their teachers.Products
mcSquares were designed with innovation and collaboration in mind. A system built to reinforce team building and independent work, mcSquares collaboration tools were born from the idea that given the right tools, every student will feel comfortable enough to contribute.
Collaboration is key to not only improving student performance in traditional testing environments, but also to improving engagement and excitement about learning. Students who use mcSquares find confidence in their ability to engage with their peers and their teachers, improving the learning experience for all.
In a world of increasing screen time, mcSquares increase student to student and student to teacher interaction through engaged learning

Teacher, Weld RE-4 School District
"After using mcSquares, I saw a 30% growth in my pre- and post-test scores. I didn’t know this could happen with one tool, but it did with mcSquares. They’ve made a huge difference!"
mcSquares pull focus away from the front of the classroom and allow students to work both individually and as a group. They create a collaborative learning environment, and give every student an opportunity to participate- even those who may not typically speak up. Providing less screen time and more kinesthetic learning, mcSquares have proven to increase testing pass rates by 340%.
