How to Use Classroom Management Software to Regain Your Students’ Attention

 

Whether you are teaching in the physical classroom, the remote classroom, or a hybrid of the two, you have most likely experienced your students straying off task during class time. When students have access to technology in the classroom, they like to spend time playing video games, looking at social media, watching movies, and more. Thankfully, however, when you have classroom management software, you can regain your students’ attention quickly and easily.

View Your Students Screens

One of the first steps of regaining your students’ attention is being able to see what your students are doing on their devices. With classroom management software like Vision, you can view what each of your students are doing on their computers from your computer.

Freeze Screens

One of the easiest ways you can regain your students’ attention is to freeze screens. When you see your students straying off task, simply push the button on your classroom management software to freeze their screens and use a verbal cue asking for their attention. Redirect your students to what they were supposed to be working on and carry on as normal.

Push a Link

If you see that your students are not on the correct website, you can push a link out to them that has the correct website you want them on. It is a simple but direct way of asking your students to get back on track.

Send a Message

With a send a message feature, you can send a message directly to your student asking them to get back on track. It is easy, effective, and gets your point across.

Web Filter

If you keep having to redirect your students back to work, you can use the web filter feature on your classroom management software tool. The easiest way to do this is by creating an allow list. Simply add the websites you want your students on to the allow list and students will not be able to stray from those allowed websites.
