Use Tech Tools for Classroom Management
April 24, 2013
Teachers are always on the lookout for innovative ways to maximize instructional minutes. From behavior tools to brain breaks, below are coordinating websites and apps to utilize for an efficient 21st Century classroom.
Behavior: Teachers that use a point system to track behaviors in class will be eager to check out the following tools.
- ClassDojo is a free web-based tool designed to help teachers improve student conduct. Instantly reinforcing good behavior, ClassDojo allows teachers to easily award feedback points for targeted behaviors with the click of a smartphone, interactive whiteboard, or computer. Reports monitoring a student’s behavior can be shared privately with parents and administrators.
- Similar to ClassDojo, The Great Behavior Game follows several of the same principles with one exception. Students are managed in teams and compete for points. Students enjoy the aspect of combining game play with behavior management.
Brain Breaks: Research studies reveal the connection between fitness levels and academic achievement, student attendance, and discipline actions. There is a powerful need for students to have brain breaks throughout the day, and We Are Teachers offers an excellent set of options.
