Pro Tips When Adding Classroom Management Software to Your School

Whether your school is participating in distance learning, hybrid learning, or in-person learning, administrators at your school have had to add new technology to classrooms this year. More and more schools are adding classroom management software to their students’ devices so teachers can have an easier time keeping their students on track. Adding new technology to classrooms can sometimes be a little confusing for all parties involved, so let’s take a look at some quick tips for making the process easier.

Ask For A Demonstration

If you are not sure if the specific classroom management software you are thinking about will work for your school, ask for a demo. Have a few select teachers try out the software and report back to you on it. Have them discuss what they like, what they don’t like, if it was easy to use, and more.

Explain to the Teachers What This Software Is

If you are deploying classroom management software out to your teachers, you need to explain to them exactly what this software is. Some teachers are not as aware of new technology as others. It is important to take the time to make sure that all of your teachers understand what the software is and what it can do. A great way to help teachers with the new software is to host a demonstration meeting that goes over the software.

Be Ready for Questions

Once you start using the program and have trained all your teachers on it, you might think that teachers will be good to go and have no issues. However, technology can be confusing, so be ready for teachers to ask you questions. It might take a little bit of time before each teacher in your school grasps every part of the software you have installed for them.

Be Transparent with Parents

It is extremely important to be transparent with your students’ parents that you are using classroom management software on students’ devices. Students are now working from home, so if you don’t tell parents, it might come off as a little secretive. Explain to parents exactly what the software does and what it doesn’t do. That way there is no room left for confusion.
