Tech Tools for Classroom Management
If you've never used Class Dojo before, it is an extremely valuable tech tool to use for Classroom Management. This is a behavior management tool that allows teachers to assign points to students for following appropriate classroom (PBIS) procedures. That data can then be seen, in real time, by the parents and administration, if they so choose.
Classcraft Volume Meter
Another easy management tool is the ability to track noise level. Using your computer's microphone, the Classcraft Volume Meter does just that. You are able to monitor the noise level of the classroom, and hold students accountable for continuing to have a comfortable volume. The best thing about this is that you do not have to have a Classcraft account, or even be a user of Classcraft to use this tool.
When thinking of an easy option to control classroom management, Google Classroom may be one of the last tools to come to mind. But, in reality, it can carry quite a bit of positive weight when considering its use. Students are not only able to post their assignments on the Classwork page, but they're able to communicate directly with the teacher, eliminating the need to either face the fear of speaking in front of friends, or potentially causing major disruptions.
