photo-30There are lots of ways to create a classroom culture that rewards positive behavior. I love using the camera on my iPad to record “Picture Perfect” behavior.

When I’m ready to start a lesson I want my students sitting up straight, with a pencil on their desk, and their iPads flipped over to prevent any distractions. Whether my iPad is tethered to my projector or I’m using AirPlay to project without wires, I tell students that I’m looking for a “Picture Perfect” student who I can show off to the class. I’ll scan the room with my camera open and snap a few pictures to show off to the class. This management trick takes less than a minute to execute but ensures that all students are focused and on task for a lesson.
