I’m new to this. How can a wireless doorbell help in a classroom ?

I plan to use mine for transitions, like when it’s time to quit working on the bellringer and transition to the lesson...

I used one this year outside of my resource room. Worked great if I lost track of time, incoming class would ring bell. Even teachers got into the habit of buzzing before entering 🤣

Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
