Middle and High School
Classcraft is a customizable avatar game system that allows the students to earn individual and team points. The characters can be customized to showcase the personality treats of each individual student. I like using Classcraft with the middle and high school students in a blended learning classroom for the following reasons.
All Grade Levels
ClassBadges is one of my go to classroom management tools not only for in the classroom but also while providing professional development trainings. ClassBadges is a free reward system that allows the teacher to quickly give out badges for student accomplishments. The following ways are how I use the badge system in my blended learning workshops and in a blended learning classroom.
Class Dojo allows the teacher to quickly input the students into the classroom and monitor their positive and negative behaviors. The teacher can display the points on the overhead projector as a class view or as individual students. The following reasons are why I like ClassDojo.
In a blended learning classroom the students should be collaborating, communicating, using critical thinking skills, as well as being creative. With all of that motion in the classroom, the noise level tends to go up as the students get more engaged. Instead of always telling the students to lower the noise level, I use the online tool TooNoisy to help monitor the noise for me. Students love being able to watch the happy face go from happy to sad once the noise level raises. This tool still allows the students to talk and work together but at an appropriate noise level. Try it out in your classroom!
One of the biggest questions I get while coaching teachers on how to implement blended learning into the classroom setting is, how do I manage and control the classroom while I am working with a small group of students. My first advice to the teachers is to set high expectations for each rotation location. Next, I like to implement classroom management tools that make the students want to be on their best behavior. Below are my top four tools that I have helped to implement into the blended and personalized classroom setting.
