A Classroom Screen to Keep You Organized
So, what is it?
Whenever you're teaching, you're bound to have a tab for a timer open, another tab for a random name generator, and yet another tab for the lesson materials you're using. But, Classroom Screen aims to make those tabs more efficient by combining multiple widgets into one easy to use screen. Within it, you have the option of having a timer, a clock, a random name generator, a dice roller, a drawing board, and even a stoplight, just to name a few. What's great is that these can all run simultaneously on one screen, organizing your classroom structure and making it much more efficient.
Another valuable widget that's available is the Random Name Selector. Enter (or upload) your students into the box, and then click "Select." This will then choose a student from the list. Also included in this box is the dice roller. You can choose to roll 1, 2, or 3 dice. Click "Roll" and you can have some fun with an interactive dice roll.
Quieting a noisy classroom can be quite a challenge. There are several methods you can use to do that. But, sometimes allowing students to have a visual of just how high the noise level gets can help lower the volume. Whether chattiness or excited partner/group work, respecting the surrounding classrooms is a must. This is where the Sound Level tool would come in handy. Once selected, allow it to access the device's microphone. Then, it will pick up the noise and transfer it to a visual that allows students to keep the noise level at a respectable volume.
