Digital learning tools are an essential part of learning in the contemporary classroom, bringing with them many benefits – diversity of materials, engaging content, differentiation and the list goes on. As teachers we all have our favourites and most students look forward to using any digital tool. But with all the benefits and fun comes the workload associated with managing accounts, passwords and access.
Here are 5 ways you can manage your classes accounts:
Photocopied login sheets for each student
A photocopied sheet for each child showing all their logins is a popular management strategy.
Collection of credentials per platform
Whether you keep your logins in a folder, a tray or on a key ring, storing credentials sorted by platform makes sense. After all, your class will regularly be logging in to the same resource at the same time.
Credentials glued into student workbooks
A staple in many classrooms; gluing login details into the cover of a workbook is very popular.
Credentials fixed to student desks
A roll of contact, a pile of printed login cards and an hour or two in a student free classroom and you will have a beautifully arranged set of credentials on each student's desk.
The newest solution in the classroom, ClassHive, keeps all your digital resources in one easy to access digital dashboard and doesn't require student usernames and passwords!
