2. Teacher’s Class BEHAVIOR PRO, Android, $0.99
Behavior management gets a boost from this app, which lets teachers differentiate between good and bad behaviors by recording behaviors in a daily log, reviewing those recorded behaviors, and creating lists of students or groups for additional monitoring. Teachers also can create categories for persistent or recurring behaviors, such as repeated lateness or bullying. Educators can eMail behavior logs to themselves and can forward those logs to colleagues or parents.
Teachers improve student behavior and practice solid classroom management at the same time with this app, which captures and generates behavior data that is easily shared with parents and administrators. The tool uses positive reinforcement to award feedback points for in-class behavior in real-time.
4. Too Noisy, iPhone/iPad, Free
This simple management app helps teachers control classroom noise levels. It’s especially useful during group work, all-class debates or discussions, or in classrooms with younger students.
5. Smart Seat, iPhone/iPad, $4.99
Teachers create seating charts with desks on a grid, choose random students for participation, make notes, and record and export attendance. Teachers also can create spreadsheets of class attendance records and export them to eMail.
Using this app, teachers can change up their classroom management strategies and pick students for random classroom participation. The app goes a step further and suggests different questions for learners at different levels. It also records how well students respond during classroom discussions, letting teachers track that information and change question levels accordingly so that students do not become bored or frustrated.
