How is NetSupport School unique?
The unique Student Journal ensures all relevant information from a lesson is recorded for future review – from lesson content and teacher/student notes, to assessment results. Used as both a revision aid for students and a record of content covered for teachers, it helps ensure all information is stored in one place.
It allows students to request help, access key resources, view which websites are available for use, when printing is restricted, what the current lesson objectives are – even rewards that have been given during the class.
There are dedicated versions for all leading desktop and mobile platforms, including Windows, Mac, Chromebooks, Android and iOS – and NetSupport School even allows teachers to connect to students using a full mix of different platforms.
Teacher App for Windows 10
In addition to all the expected core classroom features, the dedicated Tutor app for Windows also gives particular focus to the integration of key Windows 10 and Office 365 educational services.
Teachers can share their screen to all/selected connected students, as well as share a student’s screen to the class – perfect for showcasing a particular piece of work.
Ideally suited for the modern foreign languages classroom, simultaneously view all student screens and see in an instant which computers have live audio activity. Listen to a student’s microphone feed and correct pronunciation, chat or simply engage with each student individually without disrupting the lesson. Plus, audio activity can also be recorded and played back to students.
A full screen interactive whiteboard is supported by a wealth of drawing and annotation tools for improved collaboration within the classroom. It can be shown in real time to all students in the class and, when needed, they can all interact with it.
Conduct instant assessment of student understanding with our unique Question and Answer Module: deliver questions verbally, select students to answer by random, first to answer or in teams, and then bounce the questions to multiple students; ask the whole class to peer assess a response and score responses throughout the process. No lengthy preplanning, no resources needed in advance; simply assess and vary the questioning as the topic develops.
Student Feedback mode
Teachers can choose between several visual options to gauge feedback from the students; helping to capture how they feel, their confidence in a topic and whether they need extra support – allowing teachers to take appropriate actions where needed. Teachers can drill down into each student’s mood/understanding – or view the class average result, helping the teacher to see the general mood/understanding across the class at a quick glance.
As schools continue to invest in edtech, it’s important there are as few barriers to its use as possible. With this in mind, NetSupport School ensures its features and functions are accessible to all teaching staff – regardless of their tech experience and knowledge – with its three modes for using the Tutor Console’s user interface: Easy, Intermediate and Advanced. The new ‘Easy’ mode will allow technology-shy teachers to only see and use the core tools needed to maintain control over the class – supporting simplicity and ease of use.
