For teachers, there are many time-saving benefits in NetSupport School, from turning multiple PCs on or off to monitoring 30 PCs from one central point. NetSupport School also helps technicians save time by remotely responding to problems and fixing them immediately and securely. Network monitoring is made easy with the Technicians’ Console (Windows only) and provides a whole school view; grouping computers by classroom, highlighting those that are currently connected to teachers, as well as providing the all-important real-time status of each one.
Many of the features in NetSupport School are specifically developed in line with educational recommendations and accepted “best practice.” NetSupport School includes the provision of lesson details and expected outcomes visible to all students – and Student Journals delivering a full contextual record of key content for any lesson (and a valuable resource for absent students). For effective assessment in the classroom, the unique Q&A module in NetSupport School provides quick and easy 1:1, peer and group assessment tools. Groups and Group Leader features facilitate differentiation in the classroom.
There are practical ways you can save money with NetSupport School installed, such as powering on or off all the classroom computers from the teacher’s PC. No more accidentally left on computers and you don’t have to check them all individually to make sure they are all turned off. Printer management can also be controlled centrally, meaning no more unnecessary paper wastage or unauthorised printing. Reducing the load on the network can also be a major contributor to reducing power consumption and therefore impacting the school’s bottom line both in power and time.
NetSupport School delivers all of the key features required to allow a school to monitor pupils’ online behaviour. It ensures teacher access is available and allows assistance to be requested by any student – plus, it educates them about the risks and responsibilities of using the internet, via keyboard monitoring, internet metering, Messenger and application controls.
Being in full control of the classroom printers will have an immediate environmental impact on paper usage within the school. NetSupport School also provides a View/Set Power Management policy for students and teachers, allowing you to set a Windows update policy for PCs so you can choose the cheapest time of the day to update. In addition, as a teacher, you no longer need to hand out paper; you can push your electronic document out to the whole classroom in one go.
NetSupport School also provides tools to help to maximise teaching time. From locking students’ screens to blocking certain applications or websites, teachers can ensure they capture and maintain student focus.
