There are several ways that Classroom Management Software supports classroom learning. Let's take a prospective approach according to our NETS-T Standards. First, this technology facilitates and inspires student learning and creativity (ISTE Standards). Students like the idea of their work being broadcasted in front of the class. With this technology, teachers can share student's work as well as inspire them to co-create with each other. Let's face it! It's the 21st century and students want to utilize technology. It helps them have a hands on experience with the material at hand which allows for a greater focus and learning progression. Secondly, teachers can design and develop technologically based digital learning experiences and assessments (ISTE Standards). Teachers can assess their students within a matter of minutes, as a class, or one-on-one. Teachers connect to student's monitors, sharing with them exactly what they want them to learn and see. Furthermore, the great thing about this software is that not only does it make it easier for teachers to model programming and processes, it also allows for students to do the same thing (ISTE Standards). Apart of the basis for Classroom Management software is to model and share work, programs, and activities. Digital responsibility is also promoted using this software (ISTE Standards). Teachers are able to block content, applications, internet access, chat sessions, games, or anything that doesn't relate to the lesson. This promotes student safety on these devices. The patrolling of students activity is made easy using this software by allowing teachers full access to each student's monitor. Finally, because the use of computers, laptops, tablets, and cellphones is a growing thing in schools today, this piece of technology will become more and more essential to classroom learning and practice. Educators who have had the opportunity to use this in their classroom share it with others. Schools and classrooms that have not yet had the opportunity to use this technology in the classroom, will soon be given one. As I can foresee this being a requirement for all classrooms that allow for individual student use of these devices in the classroom.
