The LanSchool v7.7 teacher console will now run on the Apple iPad, iPhone, or iPod. It is called the Teacher’s Assistant. When paired with a LanSchool Teacher console running on either Mac or Windows, the Teacher’s Assistant can perform the following features on Mac, Windows or Thin Client students:
Reduce Student Distractions
Teachers can reduce student distractions by Blanking Screens, Limiting Applications and Limiting Web Browsing on student computers. This helps direct student attention from their computer to the teacher and keeps students on task.
Ideal for monitoring student activity within a classroom setting, the Thumbnail feature allows you to view all screens as well as see the current application and website that the students are running. Teachers can send messages to all or individual students.
Assess Student Understanding
Students can be quickly polled during a lecture with true/false or multiple choice questions.
Help Individual Students
Students can silently Request Help from the teacher. A small question mark appears on the thumbnail with the student question, which indicates they need help.
