My experience with adoption of change especially related to technology allows me to identify the various barriers to implementation of this technology and hence develop a plan for implementation that will minimize these barriers. This report, therefore, guides on the implementation of teacherkit technology in classroom management.The advantages of using technology in the classroom are many and cannot be ignored. Educators regard the adoption and implementation of technology as an important step in making the work of teaching natural and a practice that ensures that various levels of students’ intelligence is utilized and activated (Goldin & Katz 2008). In addition to reducing the monopoly in teaching, technology increases retention levels and helps keep the students in touch with the real life. As technology use becomes widespread among the school going generation today, there is a need for a change in the way teaching and classroom management is done. In order to associate well with the technology generation, teachers should adopt means that the generation can identify with which will enhance their involvement and participation. The teacherkit application can bridge this gap (Collins & Halverson 2009).Teacherkit technology is a simple application that makes it easy for teachers to manage a classroom. It is compatible with many operating systems and devices including android smartphones, tablets, iPhones and computers, making it one of the most affordable and dependable class organization, students’ management and assessment of the students’ behaviors, attendance and learning needs.Teacherkit application in any of the compatible devices allows the teacher to perform various activities that concern management of the classroom. First, the technology has multiple platforms that mean that a teacher taking more than one classes will be able to manage the classes separately and effectively from the same application (Figure 1). Further, the application recognizes the aspect of language diversity and has, therefore, multiple languages ability, which allows the teachers to use any of the language they choose.The application allows the teacher to add as many classes as possible and manage them. In this way, there is a provision for managing of the sitting arrangement in the classroom and allow the teacher to use specific descriptions for each student
