Classroom Mode Companion App is great for managing Minecraft Classrooms (games) in Minecraft: Education Edition. You simply connect to a game through the app and you can then manage your students and world settings through slash-commands and different toggles even though you’re not really in the game.
My favorite features:
- Student freeze: This allows you to pause the game on the devices of all the students in the game.
- Drag and drop students: This is great when a student (or I) wanders off and gets lost because you can just grab the student name in the roster and then drop them onto the map.
- Perfect weather: Rain can be distracting when you’re building! And it’s annoying for the world operator to keep doing the /weather clear slash-command.
I made a video where I run through the different features of the Classroom Mode Companion App:
