Empowering Teachers to Become Superheros

Teachers at Anderson School District 5 in Anderson County, North Carolina, knew that some students were off-task when using Chromebooks. However, they couldn’t prove it and that was frustrating. Off-task students would often minimize their tabs or close out of programs when the teacher walked by – making it appear that they were on-task.

The district decided to invest in technology tools that empower teachers by providing a live view of all student Chromebook activity in real time. That way, teachers could easily see which students were working on their projects and which needed attention.

Increasing student engagement

“We were looking to increase engagement and collaboration while keeping students safe and on-task,” said Stewart Lee, Technology Integration Coordinator at Anderson School District 3 and former Digital Integration Specialist at Anderson School District 5. We chose Vision for its ability to monitor all activity – even games or apps outside of the Chrome browser. Once Vision was implemented, teachers were able to put a stop to inappropriate activity. 

Implementing Chromebook monitoring

Netop Vision came at a time when teachers didn’t have a monitoring system for their students and it immediately answered the need,” says Melanie Hahn, Digital Integration Specialist at Anderson School District 5. “It allowed teachers to help ensure their student’s academic success by keeping them on-task, gave them options for delivering powerful content, and helped recognize students that were engaged as well.”

Powerful Features, Painless to Use:

  • Push URL – with one click lock students into one or multiple web browsers
  • Blank student screens – redirect attention by blocking student Chromebook access
  • Share screens  – with one click share the teacher’s screen on all devices
  • G Suite for Education integration – automatically import classroom rosters
  • Complex training programs not required – activate most features with one click

Our District constantly looks for products and services that will ensure the success of our students and is willing to allow us to test pilot new products. We were able to pilot Vision and when we saw the success, we pushed it out district-wide to 13,000+ total teachers and students."
