LanSchool: To help our teachers
provide a productive learning environment, we will be asking each Engage participant to
install the LanSchool collaboration software on his/her device. It will enable
our staff and students to share device screens, respond to short surveys, electronically
communicate with one another in real time, and to easily exchange documents.
Teachers will be able to observe student screens in their classroom and, thus,
quickly provide assistance to students or ensure students are on task. With
this software, a student's device can only be monitored by a teacher when the
student is connected to the school's network, thus monitoring only occurs at
school and not at home. The use of LanSchool was supported by our Spring 2013
Engage 1:1 surveys where students, parents, and staff all listed online
distractions as a challenge. We believe that this tool can help to reduce
distractibility and support learning. Information on
the LanSchool collaboration and management software can be found at www.lanschool.com.
Prior to registration and the start of school
ask that each participating student install LanSchool on his/her electronic
device using the directions found below If you have
difficulty with this installation our technology team members will be available
at registration to assist students.
