Case Study

Forest Park Elementary School

Keeps students focused while creating a fun, interactive experience with Netop Vision

Elizabeth Gardner creates a fun and interactive learning environment in her computer lab at Forest Park Elementary School in Portland, Oregon. She makes complex topics, like coding, easy to understand by incorporating interactive activities, such as a Star Wars game from code.org. The result? Students are literally on the edge of their seats. They listen intently to her instructions and watch the demo, ready to begin. 

Press a button to load Vision onto all students’ computer screens

To begin the activity, Elizabeth uses Vision classroom management software. She simply presses a button to load the program onto all of the students’ computer screens. With Vision, she is able to view thumbnail screenshots of the students’ screens, making sure they are on-task and seeing who may need help or redirection.

Foster leadership skills by giving each student time to act as the driver

Elizabeth pairs the students so they can help each other learn and experience the activity together, building collaboration. Each student receives equal time to lead the activity, acting as the driver, which helps foster leadership skills. Towards the end of class, Elizabeth simply presses the blank screen function to freeze all computer screens, easily refocusing attention to the front of the room so she can make the final announcements before the bell rings.

Powerful Features, Painless to Use:

  • Refocus classroom attention by blanking student screens, an easy way to redirect students’ attention.
  • View all student screens from the teacher computer. Easily tell if someone needs help or redirection and knows that students are safe.
  • Save time by launching websites and programs from teacher computer directly to the students’ devices.
  • Turn on, log on, or shut down the entire computer lab all at once with the click of a button, saving time and improving efficiencies.

"Vision makes my life easier and saves time because it gets the students directly to where I want them to be and ensures they are paying attention."

- Elizabeth Gardner, Forest Park Elementary School

Anderson School District 5, South Carolina

Teachers at Anderson School District 5 in Anderson County, North Carolina, knew that some students were off-task when using Chromebooks. The district decided to invest in Vision, which provided 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 students needed attention.
