Tech Tidbits

Your Source for Integrating Technology at BBES

Welcome Back!

The first edition of this year's Tech Tidbits is dedicated to NEW tools for classroom management. Class Dojo is well known... but there are others! All are great opportunities to get all it in order!

The Great Behavior Game
Everyone knows about Class Dojo, however another similar tool is the Great Behavior Game. In the game students earn points for positive behaviors. The tool keeps data for you to share with parents and others.

Stick Pick

Pick a student at random with just a tap, swipe, or a shake -- but that’s just the beginning. Stick Pick suggests question starters for learners at different levels and also records how well students respond during classroom discussions. If a student is consistently scoring near the top or bottom, simply change the level so students aren't bored or frustrated.

My favorite... Bouncy Balls

Essentially, Bouncy Balls is a website that activates your microphone and detects noise level. The more noise in the room, the more the balls bounce. The quieter the room is, the more still the balls remain. This tool has a number of applications outside of classroom management.
