Classroom Management Suggestions

Teachers who will use a "cart" of devices (iOS, laptops, netbooks) can download and use the Classroom Management Spreadsheet to assign a specific numbered device to their students. This will ensure that their students use the same device each day and assist with classroom management by:

  • Giving students clear expectations
  • Implementing a systematic way for students to pick up and drop off their device at the beginning and end of each class
  • Help teachers to keep notes about the quality of the devices to identify potential misuse/abuse of devices.
