As little as 15 years ago, many teachers organized their classes using A3 graph paper, calendars solely existed on walls, and students had to wait until after class to ask all of their questions, in person. Thankfully classrooms have advanced and those tedious tasks can be taken care of by using classroom management software. This handy software can sort your classes online (no more paper!), access multiple calendars that are sync'd across the school or organization, and provide a portal for students to contact you.

Whether you're working at a large organization or a small school, classroom management software is a great way of keeping people organized and keeping track of their work. Additionally, being able to view other teacher's calendars can be a lifesaver when trying to plan out the academic school year.

With that in mind we've put together a handy checklist to provide a starting place in your search for classroom management software.
