When you give your students access to devices in the classroom, you open up a whole new world of resources to them. They can learn the material you need them to through different websites, videos, podcasts, and more. The opportunities are endless. Unfortunately, with access to the internet, students sometimes also get off task. They get on websites they should not be on, so the challenge is to keep them on the appropriate websites.
How To Keep Your Students on the Appropriate Websites
Keeping your students on the right websites can be a struggle, but thankfully with classroom management software, the task isn’t so hard. Classroom management software allows you to create a web filter for your students’ devices. Vision’s web filter is a whitelist filter, meaning that you create a list of sites you want your students on rather than a list of websites that you don’t want your students on.
Why a White List Instead of a Blacklist?
Whitelists save you time. Instead of having to create a long list of all the sites you don’t want your students on, you create a shorter list of the sites that you do want your students on.
Other Awesome Features of Vision
Vision doesn’t just allow you to create web filters for your students’ devices. There are a lot of other great features that help you keep your students on track and enhance their learning. Enjoy things like:
• View Student Screens – See everything your students see on their computers. At a glance, see who is on task and who needs assistance.
• Share Teacher’s Screens – Facilitate learning by sharing your screen on every student device. No need for projectors and handouts – give everyone a front-row view.
• Showcase Student – Students can display their screens directly on the other student computers, practicing their presentation skills and enhancing collaboration.
• Blank Screens – Refocus student attention with the push of a button, locking screens and keyboards.
