An Edtech Minute with ClassCharts

Michael Boll, Jamie Wilett, Chris Carter

ClassCharts is a web service that is both an interactive seating chart and student behavior tracker. The logic of the site is that student location, both vis-à-vis the teacher and specific other students, has a significant impact on that student’s ability to focus on the content and skills being taught. This service provides longitudinal data concerning behaviors and performance.
