I suggest you ...

Set a timer to automatically lock student screens after a certain time.

I often set a timer for my students in class then manually lock their screens to bring back their attention.

I would LOVE if I could set a timer on their screen that would countdown for them and then automatically lock when time is up. This feature is available on tools like Pear Deck and has been very helpful.

        This type of tool would be extremely beneficial because it would help keep students accountable for their time. After our school changed to a one-to-one program, we found it difficult to monitor and keep students on track. If students knew that they only had a set amount of time on a site, or to complete a certain task, they might be more invested in using their time wisely. This is a great suggestion, and I would love to see a feature like this!!
