Have you ever considered using a wireless doorbell to assist you with classroom transitions? I recently discovered that several teachers do. “How clever!” I thought. I was searching online to find out if these wireless ringers were expensive when my tech savvy colleague, Karen, says, “I bet there’s an app for that…” And there is! In fact there are several doorbell apps and they are free. Yes, FREE.
So, if you like the idea of using ringtones to assist you with classroom management you have a variety of options. There are numerous wireless doorbells and there are numerous doorbell apps. The doorbell app I downloaded has ten different ringtones, all of which I’ve tried, much to my colleagues’ ever-so-slight annoyance.
Whatcha’ think? Do you vote “yep” for using ringtones in the classroom or “nope”?
Eager to hear from you!
