I absolutely LOVE using classroomscreen.com. In essence, it's a web-based interactive desktop wallpaper. Instead of finding different widgets, extensions, or apps to help you keep track of timers, calendars, randomized name generators, or noise level meters, Classroom Screen has them all in one place. It has been such a lifesaver for me as I use it to keep track of library activities. I simply decide which tools to use and project it on the screen. I included a video tutorial to feature the tools it has available. I hope you enjoy it as much as my teachers and I do!
I had the honor of being an expert panelist for a Buncee Chat! The topic regarded student creativity. I was so excited to learn about educators using Buncee and how they're using it in the library and classroom. Can't wait to implement some of these ideas.
