What’s New in the Warren County School District in 2022-23: Classwize

358

WARREN, Pa. – Educators are always looking for ways to enhance student learning.

Another way the Warren County School District is doing that this year is through Classwize, which gives teachers the ability to make sure their students are staying on task.

Essentially, Classwize is an online tool where teachers have the ability to have screen visibility of all devices in the classroom.

“This is new this year,” said Warren County School District Director of Curriculum Instruction & Assessment Eric Mineweaser. “Essentially it gives teachers the ability to see what every one of their students is doing.”

With Classwize, teachers can see which students are on task and which ones are distracted with screen monitoring capabilities.

Classwize also restricts students’ access to specific apps and sites during lesson time.

“You need to be on what the teacher wants you to be on,” Mineweaser said. “This ensures students are staying on task.

Classwize also features a teacher/student chat feature.

“It really is a great tool that will be mutually beneficial,” Mineweaser said.
