    Question Network Based Classroom Management

    As some of you may have seen from other posts, I've just got a rack of 18 laptops for classroom use.

    The problem we have is that the teacher stood at the front of the classroom cannot see what is on the childrens' screens in the same way as they would be able to in a traditional ICT suite with machines around the outside.

    I've looked at SynchronEyes as I like its functionality - the only issue seems to be that the students machines (in this case the laptops) are tied down to a specific teacher PC. This causes issues as the laptops move around between eight classrooms, and I need the teachers' machines in all of these classrooms to be able to take control of the laptops without any reconfiguring.

    Am I missing something in SynchronEyes? Is this possible? If not, can anyone recommend an alternative program?

    Many Thanks

    Netsupport School will allow you to do this
    Netsupport School The Classroom Management Software

    You can have a “portable tutor” this is a program that will allow you to control the machines using a problem running from a network share, pendrive etc.

    Thanks for the Heads Up

    Do you know where I can buy this software and how much it costs?

    The "where to buy" link on their website just takes me round in circles when I select Europe and then United Kingdom.

    I'll give the trial a go sometime soon

    Many Thanks

    I’m not sure to be honest. Ring them up and see what they say. You can also look at Ranger Remote Control : Sentinel Products Designed for Education | Ranger Remote Control it’s the exact same as Netsupport just with another name on it. Although Netsupport Support is better.

    When you trial it I have some .adm files you might find handy.

    SynchronEyes

    Hello,

    SynchronEyes can also do what you are asking. The laptops can move from room to room and whatever teacher computer is in the next room can act as the teacher station. If you visit SynchronEyes 7 classroom management software you should see why this is just a wonderful product for any school. If you have any questions about SynchroEyes just let me know.

    Apparently it follows you around the room like the Mona Lisa.
