As a teacher, there are a multitude of responsibilities to take on when being in charge of a classroom. Learning objectives, lesson plans and behavior monitoring are just a few of the many tasks educators take under their wing.
Classroom management is a multi-faceted requirement of educators, and it can be difficult to take on an entire class of children and ensure constant cooperation and good behavior, given that virtual classrooms and distance learning are now the norm. In today’s day and age, many lessons are also planned around the use of technology, which adds another opportunity for distraction from the tasks at hand.
Senso recognizes the importance of managing a classroom, and has tailored a package called Class Cloud, designed to put control back in the teacher’s hands through a collection of optimized features that allow for a seamless, interruption-free method of classroom leadership. As part of a new series showcasing Senso’s various software packages, this article talks through the offerings included with Class Cloud and how you can find out more about the package.
Class Cloud Features
Teachers can go live from their device or choose any student device in the class and have them be the presenter. They can route all devices to divert to the same page at once, keeping everyone focused on the learning objective at hand and eliminating any distractions on other sites.
Teachers can grant and deny access to sites as required – keeping students on websites relevant to the lesson and away from websites containing potentially harmful content.
At times when student feedback can be useful, teachers can send out a question to however many devices they choose, and see instant feedback in the same window.
Similarly to locking screens, another control measure is the ability to disable access to use any browser in order to regain attention from the class.
Teachers can lock the screens of individual or collective devices if the student is being disruptive, distracted, or not cooperating. It allows for customisation of the lock screen from messages to color.
In addition, lock screen is a fantastic method for re-focusing your students and directing attention for lesson instructions.
Useful for monitoring students in real time, teachers can see a thumbnail of each student’s computer, enabling them to ensure students are focused and engaged on the task at hand.
Google Classroom Sync
Making monitoring Chromebooks easier, Google Classroom makes the syncing and observation of the class’s devices easier. With one click, your thumbnails are live on Google Classroom!
