Classroom management tools help keep your students on schedule and help keep you organized, so that you can spend more time teaching. It’s important that these tools are easy to access and use, however, so that you can reduce back-and-forth between different tools that interrupt the flow of class.
Gynzy offers helpful class management tools & widgets such as:
By using the Gynzy online whiteboard, you can add all these tools and widgets to your Favorites tab for easy access while you teach (try customizing one of our pre-made lessons). Best of all, Gynzy works as well for online learning as it does on the interactive whiteboard at the front of your classroom.
To get started, create a Gynzy account and begin exploring our Library today.
Keeping track of student names and seating can be a hassle for substitute teachers, at the beginning of a new school year, and especially for teachers who teach multiple classes. With the classroom floor plan creator from Gynzy, you can easily design and re-create your classroom layout to help keep your classroom in order.
Once you’ve created a Gynzy account, you can begin building your classroom by selecting furniture from the image picker that will appear on the left side of your online whiteboard. Once you’ve re-created your classroom (or imagined a potential new layout), you can add your students to the student manager (you can also synchronize your class rosters from Google Classroom) to assign seats for your class.
No matter what grade you teach or how many students you have, it’s important to keep your class on schedule so you can get to everything you have planned. The class schedule tool lets you do this right from your whiteboard so that you can check your schedule without disrupting the flow of your lesson.
You can open or hide the class schedule at any time from the Gynzy whiteboard. To do so, click the options setting, enable the class schedule, navigate to the schedule tools and begin planning your day.
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!
