Management Tools on the iPad

7 Nov

There are lots of great management tools on the iPad that I use in my classroom (Timers, Quickvoice, Siri).

Here are two more that I love:

Red Light, Green Light - This programmable traffic light can be less intimidating than a timer is you’re working on pacing your students and keeping them on task.

TooLoud? - Watching the decibel level change as volume increases can be a powerful tool to monitor volume in your classroom – the graph can facilitate discussion as well.

    I use a timer app called 30/30 which I like because it is easily adjusted to add as many timer periods as I want. I find it a great alternative to the Pomodoro app.

    One of the timers I’ve used in class is called Sand Timer. Built after the classic sand time theme, but with an added bonus at the end of the time, where as it plays a funky beat or some other cool tune.
