Classroom Management Center
The period of distance learning due to COVID-19 has undoubtedly increased teacher comfort and the use of technology for instruction. With this change, it is inevitable that with the eventual return to the physical classroom, technology integration will only increase in an effort for continued enhancement of instruction.
With this increase in technology and devices in the classroom come inevitable challenges. Technology is a distraction for students, and teachers cannot afford to waste class time policing devices that are meant to enhance their lessons. On average, students using devices are off task 11 times throughout the class, which decreases teacher confidence using devices. This is where classroom management comes in. Classroom management software has redefined how students use technology in classrooms by ensuring students are staying on task and empowers teachers to teach in digital environments.
What is Classroom Management?
Classroom management can take a few meanings in K-12 classrooms, referring to teachers’ management of student performance and also management of student devices. At Dyknow, we are focused on the management of student devices in the classroom. Classroom management software monitors students’ device usage in the classroom and gives teachers the ability to see, manage, and track student device activity.
Without these tools, it is nearly impossible for teachers to keep an eye on every student’s computer screen and teach confidently with technology. Classroom management software enhances student learning while limiting off-task behavior. Many schools will continue adopting classroom management software for their classrooms to help manage technology usage after months of remote and blended learning.
