I am the type of teacher who is always willing to try new technology in the classroom. Latest tech tip? I'll give it a go. Shiniest new app? I like shiny things. Pixels on the screen configured to grab my students' attention? Well, okay--that's a hard won thing.

The trouble is, I find myself going from app to app and website to website. It's often worth it, but what about for the really basic, useful, classroom management tools?

I Google yet another website to visually monitor student volume, and to jot info down, I walk over to my whiteboard (or pull up a separate program on my Promethean Board).

None of this is taxing, but if it could all be in one place, displayed simultaneously, that would seriously streamline things. And when transitions are shorter, students have less time to get off task. I've wondered how to make this happen on numerous occasions, but I'm just not the genius to figure out how to make all of this happen.

But, fortunately, someone else is. AND he provides it online for FREE. He is a teacher from the Netherlands named Laurens Koppers who, like me, wanted to have all of these tools available in one place. So he made a simple tool that brings a lot of management tools together all on one screen.
