ClassroomScreen: A useful tool you can use tomorrow!

I recently came across ClassroomScreen.com and couldn’t resist sharing it.

Many teachers’ tech toolkits are bursting at the seams and sometimes it can be a good idea to use a few tools well, rather than jump on every new resource.

However, it’s hard to resist a useful tool to help organise your classroom and provide structure for students.

Some resources require a bit of thought and exploration to figure out how they could be implemented in your classroom. Not ClassroomScreen.

It’s free.

It’s simple.

It’s useful.

No matter what you teach, as long as you have a projector, interactive whiteboard or television in your classroom, I’m pretty sure you’ll find a use for this.

What is ClassroomScreen?

It is simply a website that is a one-stop-shop with useful widgets you can use while teaching or while students are working.

What can you do with the widgets?

  • type your instructions in the textbox
  • choose a work symbol to show preferred noise level
  • set a timer or show the clock
  • use the traffic light to indicate progress
  • pick a random name
  • use a calculator
  • draw in-screen or full-screen
  • generate a QR code for children to scan
  • drag and drop the icons and change backgrounds

      Hi Yolande,

      Great to hear this tool is something you could use too. Such a time saver to be able to put information up without having to go over it repeatedly etc!

    Great share Kathleen! What a handy tool. I can not only see classroom teachers finding it useful, but instructional coaches and administrators too. Seems like a fun tool to use at workshops and staff meetings too. 🙂

      You’re so right! I hadn’t thought about the possibilities of this tool being used at meetings and workshops. Great idea! I imagine having the timer could be especially useful at some staff meetings 😉
