Computers in schools have the power to enhance the classroom experience for both students and teachers. But the benefits can easily be lost to distractive elements such as games, instant messaging, and web surfing.

Designed with the needs of teachers in mind, Faronics Insight is the ultimate classroom management system that empowers teachers with full control over classroom technology and student progress. Faronics Insight enables teachers to harness the educational and productive aspects of computers, while minimizing distractive behavior and temptations

Teachers love the fact that they can share their screen with students, provide remote assistance to students from a central console, and monitor classroom screens to ensure students are on task. Students appreciate the ability to request and receive help directly in their workstation session, and have their voice heard through classroom voting. With the ability to disable applications, Internet access, and blank student screens, teachers can quickly gain student attention when required.
