Sergeant Laboratories announced today the expansion of its AristotleInsight K12 Borderless Classroom Technology to include their new Teacher Controlled Browsing.
“For years, teachers have been asking for the ability to manage the technology in their classrooms on the fly,” explained Sergeant Laboratories’ CEO Eric Anderholm. “While other classroom management solutions rely on technology admins to create, maintain, and update the list of sites students are and are not allowed to visit, AristotleInsight K12 takes a teacher-focused approach. We wanted to present teachers with the ability to lock down browsers for testing, reengage off-task students, and ensure that students are using technology for learning, instead of distractions.”
Expanding on the philosophy of providing technology that is ‘as simple as a light switch’ to use, Teacher Focused Browsing allows educators to take control of their classroom without relying on support tickets and waiting games.
Features of the new Teacher Controlled Browsing include:
- Teachers can specify certain sites students are allowed access to during a class period
- Teachers can create a ‘Penalty Box’ that allows problematic students to only navigate to specific sites
- Lockdown browsers for testing
- Enhanced classroom management functionality
- Teachers can create a custom ‘blacklist’ of sites they do not want students going to during the class period
- Teachers can allow access to sites for a class period that are normally blocked by the filter
Backed by over 20 years of in classroom research and development, the latest release of AristotleInsight K12 introduces revolutionary new ways for educators to manage their classroom. By combining Teacher Controlled Browsing with AristotleInsight K12’s classroom management functionality, student behavior analytics, geo-location, forensic auditing, and utilization reporting capabilities, AristotleInsight K12 becomes the sole solution needed for improving technology learning outcomes and teaching digital citizenship.
AristotleInsight K12 is engineered to meet the unique needs of modern school districts. Districts today have all types of devices, such as PCs, Chromebooks, Macs, and printers.
AristotleInsight K12 not only works seamlessly in the classroom environment, it also works outside of the school network to allow students to remain safe when taking 1:1 devices home with them.
Existing AristotleInsight K12 customers have access to all of the features discussed as well as many other product enhancements.
