Manage Class from Your Interactive Whiteboard
Spend more time interacting with students.
There is more to being a teacher than communicating concepts and grading assignments. Students need to have rules and structure so they understand the behavior expected of them. That’s where Gynzy’s classroom management tools for your Interactive Whiteboard come in handy.
Our selection of classroom management tools helps teachers manage student expectations with easily customizable widgets such as the Traffic Light and Voice Level tools. Spend more time interacting with students by transforming your Interactive Whiteboard into a place you can manage your entire classroom.
Control Class Volume from Your Interactive Whiteboard
Although every teacher may run their class a bit differently, students need clear instruction to understand how they should behave in the classroom. Our traffic light tool lets you control the pace of your classroom simply by pressing the color you’d like the Traffic Light to display. What the different colors signify in your class is up to you.
Here is one way you could assign colors for the Traffic Light in your classroom:
- Red means no talking or leaving your seat without raising your hand and asking
- Yellow means use your inside voice, or begin wrapping up a test or project
- Green means you can move about the classroom and speak at a normal volume
The voice level tool gives you another interactive, customizable visual cue with which to manage the behavior of your students. How many volume levels do you want your students to be aware of? When do you want them to be used? All of this is customizable from the tool’s settings, or the gear icon that appears on the bottom-left of the tool when you click it.
You can set anywhere between two and six settings for the volume of the classroom. You are also able to name the levels whatever you would like, or choose to hide the name of the different settings entirely.
As with the rest of our tools, images, and widgets, the Traffic Light and Voice Level tool can be locked into place and shown on all pages in your lesson. Experiment to see what works for your class!
Keep Students on Time with Clocks and Timers
Class must be kept moving at a steady pace, and students will need to develop the ability to tell and keep time at an early point in their lives. This is where Gynzy’s interactive clocks and timers are useful.
The hourglass tool is a memorable way to track time. Through the settings on the bottom-left of the tool, you can set the time of the hourglass from anywhere to one to sixty minutes. You can also adjust the noise the hourglass makes when time is up.
The hourglass is a great option particularly for younger students who are not comfortable reading a clock yet, because the sand drops from the hourglass in real time. Try it out to see for yourself!
The analog timer is another way to track short amounts of time for tests, presentations, and other activities. It can also be set anywhere from one to sixty minutes, and the buzzer sound can be adjusted too.
These tools are helpful for timing shorter, more specialized activities. But they’re most useful when paired with either our analog clock or digital clock so that you can keep time on schedule throughout the day.
Save Time with Gynzy Classroom Management Tools
