Key Features of NetSupport School

Manage

One key strand of classroom management is exactly that: “managing” the students and their devices, to maximise time spent on teaching.

  • Classroom Management is a breeze even without IT support. (i.e. locking of devices)

  • Printer and Device Management 

  • Student Register

  • Student Information Bar provides timely feedback to the student on the current lesson

  • Hand Out and Collect Files 

  • Dedicated Technicians’ Console (Windows) for network managers and technicians to help support users and manage devices across the school

Monitor and Control 

Being able to monitor student activity is the cornerstone of good classroom management software. Not only does it ensure students stay on task, but it is also a key foundation for an effective e-safety implementation. NetSupport School ensures a teacher can easily monitor student screens, the applications they are using, the websites they are visiting, what they are typing and who they are collaborating with.

  • View student screens in real time (Monitor Mode)

  • Application and internet monitoring

  • Real-time Keyboard Monitoring

  • Real-time Audio Monitoring and Language Lab tools

  • Teacher app for Windows 10 & Tutor Assistant app

Test and Assess

NetSupport School provides a range of tools to support Assessment for Learning (AfL). Simply put, AfL is a way to track understanding and can range from informal classroom discussions and peer assessment to an end-of-year external examination. The more regular the feedback, the better the learning outcomes – and learners are equipped with knowledge of how to improve.

  • Student Surveys

  • Student testing and quiz

  • The Student Journal ensures all relevant information from a lesson is recorded for future review 

  • Question and Answer (Q&A) Module

Instruct and Demonstrate
