LanSchool v7.8 Features
Teacher's Assistant for the Apple iPad/iPhone/iPod
The LanSchool v7.8 teacher console will 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.
Remote Control Student
The Remote Control Student feature in LanSchool 7.7 allows teachers to be mobile in the classroom while still having access to remotely use the mouse and keyboard on a selected student’s machine
Remote Control Teacher
Remote Control Teacher allows teachers to use all the features of the LanSchool Teacher Console while moving about the classroom
