There’s much talk of the ‘new normal’ and what that might mean for learning in the classroom. But did you know, if your school has a virtual environment, you could already be providing a sense of continuity and familiarity for your students by leading teaching and learning with NetSupport School – even though they’re working at home…
Many schools’ IT teams have already ensured their school has a virtual environment (RDP) for remote administration of their technology. The good news for teachers and students is that NetSupport School can also be run in this environment and used just as it would be in lessons.
Teachers can interact with students as if they were all sitting together in a classroom. For example, the teacher can monitor pupils’ progress and ensure they stay on task, as well as share their own screen, apply approved/restricted application and website lists to maintain focus and ensure online safety, plus engage students with Q&A mode, surveys, student feedback mode – and more. In fact, the teacher can use all NetSupport School’s tools via the remote environment; delivering engaging and interactive lessons to ensure the rhythm of learning can continue.
Even though students are using their own (or their family’s) devices at home, their privacy is protected as, thanks to the RDP environment that handles all of the connections, there is no need for any software to be installed on those devices. Instead, the students simply log into the session that has been started by the teacher and, once they log out at the end of the lesson, the connection between them is closed.
In this time of remote teaching and learning, it’s a great opportunity to use something everyone is familiar with and provide a bit of consistency for everyone.
