This tool is a collection of paint chip cards which is used to keep track of student’s login information for school computers and accounts. Each student gets their own strip, and they will know where to find it so if they ever forget their login, they can easily check to remember.
Each student will get their own paint chip card. Each has multiple shades of one color on it, so at the top, you would write their name, and then for each of the sections add password or login information that they need to remember for school. Keep all students strips on a binder ring and put somewhere in the classroom that is accessible to all students. If, throughout the year, a student forgets his/her login information, they can go to this booklet of strips, find theirs and look at the password. Make sure that your students know this is not something to be accessed in the middle of teaching time, unless specifically asked.
I placed this tool in the Preventative phase because it eliminates the risk of students forgetting their passwords and having to ask for them and potentially having to reset them. This tool allows for students to find their passwords for themselves. Also, this tool falls into the student-directed part of the spectrum because the students know where to go when they have forgotten their passwords and they can find it themselves without help from the teacher.
