Abstract Effective classroom management is considered a key criterion to making classrooms effective learning environments. Supporting classroom orchestration—the teacher-centric real-time management of classroom activities—is central to achieving effective classroom management. However, the multi-faceted nature of classroom orchestration, its complexity, and general classroom constraints such as time, present challenges for the effective management of the modern-day classroom environment. Though effective, most existing approaches for overcoming orchestration challenges, such as Google Classroom, are arguably ad hoc. We argue that streamlined technology-driven orchestration can be attained through the use of an orchestration workbench, potentially making educators more effective within formal learning environments. Early supporting evidence, from a study involving the use of a prototype orchestration tool, demonstrates the feasibility of organised orchestration and its potential to improve students’ learning experience.
