I sent a few students #positivemessages using @Dyknow. One left me a note saying how she would try her best all year with my help. Another smiled when I passed him in the hallway. The other told another teacher about it. Positive results! 😊#watchus_sms— Angie Johnson (@smsMrsJohnson) August 30, 2019
Teachers sharing blocking plans to eliminate distractions and keep students focused/engaged while on their Chromebooks at our @DyKnow-mite Block Party!

Great tool to help me to monitor and redirect students when they are interacting with their device in class. I can give a redirect that is informative instead of disciplinary. I like being able to give suggestions for redirection instead of just having to punish.— Deena Wickliffe (@wick_science) September 26, 2018
DyKnow is not just used for monitoring tech use...it is formative assessment in the most efficient way-as you teach!

How are you using Dyknow?
DyKnow has changed the way I am able to connect and engage my students! This application has made it possible for students, at all levels, collaborative through Advanced Placement, to interact, research, and test without the temptation of the internet and other applications.— Laura Gualtiere (@lgualtiere) September 26, 2018
The tool allows for discreet communication between teacher and student during learning activities so that real-time correction of thinking can occur.— Deena Wickliffe (@wick_science) September 26, 2018
I like that I can have different plans for different students! I have plans I use frequently, and having that list makes enforcing any one of them a breeze.— Claudia Brunot (@claudiabrunot) September 27, 2018
There are days with no tech use in English class, but if the student computers are on, then so is my DyKnow! 😊
I use DyKnow in my classroom both as a monitor of student work and as a way to help eliminate distractions for them.— Claudia Brunot (@claudiabrunot) September 27, 2018
*I love setting the monitor then going back later and viewing where they were working (or not) and adjusting from there. The analytics are extremely helpful.
