NeSupport School - Student App - Android/iOS Student App - Android/iOS

For installation on any Android tablet or iPad*, NetSupport School Student for Android and iOS gives teachers the power to connect to each student in a NetSupport School-managed classroom**, enabling real-time interaction and support.

Key features:

Student Register

The teacher can request standard and/or custom information from each student at the start of each class and create a detailed register from the information provided.

Connecting to Students

The teacher can either browse for students (from their desktop application) or allow students to connect directly to the relevant class from their Android or iOS device.

The NetSupport School Student can be configured to launch automatically when the device is powered on. (Android Only)

Lesson Objectives

If provided by the teacher, once connected, students are presented with details of the current lesson, together with overall objectives and their expected learning outcomes.

Sending Messages

The teacher can broadcast messages to one, selected, or all devices. Students receive an audible and visual alert when a message is received and they can then be viewed and managed by the student.

Chat

Both the student and the teacher can initiate a Chat session and participate in group discussions.

Requesting Help

Students can discreetly alert the teacher when they require assistance. This sends an alert to the teacher's desktop, enabling them to interact with the student concerned. In addition, a red toolbar appears at the top of the student's device, enabling the teacher to easily identify students in need of help as they move around the classroom.

Class Surveys

As part of student and classroom assessment, teachers can conduct on-the-fly surveys to gauge student knowledge and understanding. Students are able to respond in real time to the survey questions posed and the teacher can then show results to the whole class, enabling students to receive instant feedback on their progress.

Question and Answer Mode

Enables the teacher to conduct instant student and peer assessment. Deliver questions verbally to the class then select students to answer. Select Students either randomly (pot luck), first to answer, or in teams. Bounce questions to multiple students, ask the class to peer assess a selected response and keep individual and team scores.

File Transfer

The teacher can transfer files to and from a selected student tablet or multiple devices in a single action. (Android Only)

Lock Screen

The teacher can lock students' screens while presenting, ensuring student focus when required. (Android Only)

Blank Screen

The teacher can blank student screens to gain attention. (Android Only)

Show Screen

While presenting, the teacher can show their desktop to connected devices, at which point students are able to use touch-screen gestures to pinch, pan and zoom in order to highlight key information when needed.

Configuration Options

Teachers can choose to pre-configure each device with the required classroom connectivity settings, or 'push' the settings out from within the NetSupport School Tutor program.

Launch URLs

Remotely launch a selected website on one or multiple student tablets.

Student Rewards

Remotely assign 'rewards' to students to recognise good work or behaviour.

WiFi/Battery Indicators

View the current status of wireless networks (Android Only) and display battery strength for connected student devices.

Student Thumbnails

View thumbnails of all connected student tablets from the teacher PC.
