Faronics Insight classroom management software is an award winning software program designed to help teachers teach more effectively in a computer-based classroom.
(Please note that this application will only function in a Faronics Insight managed classroom environment)
The Faronics Insight Teacher's Assistant is Insight's teacher console for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. When paired with an Insight Teacher console running on either Mac or Windows, the Teacher's Assistant will have the following benefits for teachers, professors, or corporate trainers.
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.
Ideal for monitoring student activity within a classroom setting, the thumbnail view allows you to see all the activity occurring on student computer screens. This makes it easy to view all screens in the classroom including the current applications and websites that students are running. Teachers can also send messages or engage in chat sessions with the students.
Assess Student Understanding:
Students can be quickly and easily 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's question, which indicates a help requisition.
