Vision for Chromebook Update Allows for Distance Learning

Posted by Amy Roberts on April 8, 2020 at 1:00 PM


In a lot of classrooms, teachers worry about keeping their students on track while they are using their 1:1 devices. Instead of working, students may be checking social media, playing games, online shopping, watching YouTube, and more. Some teachers rely on a classroom management software system to help them with this issue. Classroom management software allows teachers to manage and monitor their students’ devices in real-time. Favorite features include: monitoring students’ screens, sending messages, and use of web filters.

With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, the educational landscape is changing. Schools are now closed, and teachers are being required to teach their students at a distance. Cases of students using devices are even more prevalent now because of this. Students need devices to communicate with their teachers and classmates, as well as complete their schoolwork.

Classroom Management in the Remote Environment

Now more than ever, teachers need help making sure that their students are on task during class time. They can’t be physically in the same room with their students, so they need some way to make sure that their students are behaving appropriately on their devices. Classroom management software is one way that teachers can keep their students on track during distance learning. Vision has recently updated Vision for Chromebooks so that it works in the distance learning environment.

Distance Learning and Vision for Chromebooks

The new update to Vision for Chromebooks allows teachers to use all of the same great features they love, but now in a distance learning environment. Vision for Chromebooks includes:

• Viewing Student Screens – See everything your students see on their computers. At a glance, see who is on task and who needs assistance.
• Sharing Teacher’s Screens – Facilitate learning by sharing your screen on every student device.
• Showcasing Students – Students can display their screens directly on the other student computers, practicing their presentation skills and enhancing collaboration.
• Blanking Screens – Refocus student attention with the push of a button, locking screens and keyboards.
• Web Filters – You decide which websites are available or off-limits.
• Messaging – remind your students to get back on track or lend them some extra help.
