Given that classroom management continues to be cited as a top concern for teachers combined with the consistently increasing demands placed on teachers’ time, an app or course on the essentials of classroom management is an effective, interactive, engaging and efficient method for streamlining the learning process.
Classroom Management Essentials is appropriate for any educator wishing to explore the process of classroom management and who would like a framework for developing a classroom management plan for his or her own classroom. This includes teacher education students, novice teachers, veteran teachers, supervisors and principals. Anyone who uses Classroom Management Essentials will learn more about the process of classroom management and strategies to implement in his or her own classroom. In addition, people who serve in mentor or supervisory roles will have a framework and the language needed to effectively deconstruct the process of classroom management and ultimately be more effective when identifying areas for growth with their mentees.
Classroom Management Essentials is available in two editions, the iOS app and the Udemy course. The iOS app is ideal for anyone who would like to experience Classroom Management Essentials on an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch device. The iOS app has an intuitive touch interface and is expertly designed and crafted specifically for iOS devices. The Udemy course is ideal for anyone who would like to experience Classroom Management Essentials from a standard web browser interface. Most modern web browsers are supported so you can watch, listen, learn and interact from your smartphone, tablet, netbook, laptop or desktop. Both editions include the same great content, professional quality audio and video and are offered for the same price.
Two of the main purposes of Classroom Management Essentials are to help teachers understand that classroom management is more than just discipline and to prevent management problems from occurring. However, Classroom Management Essentials will not solve every classroom management or discipline issue that ever existed or will exist in a classroom. That goal is unrealistic. It is important to note that a lot of classroom management issues are within the teacher’s ability to manage with the proper training. Unfortunately, some school systems have created situations where the issues that arise in the classroom are beyond the scope of what a teacher can deal with effectively.
The teachers were either personally selected by the presenter based on her own observations of their outstanding teaching and management ability or they were highly recommended by a respected colleague of the presenter.
There are approximately two hours of video presentations, which include a “Learn from the Expert” section and a “Teacher Talk” section. In addition, there are many self-guided, interactive portions where the user will navigate and read at his or her own pace.
