Passive
Active
NetSupport school has several features to present new information to students and many of them are very interactive. Moreover, the solution allows adapting its features to the student's needs and type of activities, as well as the teacher's own skill level. Monitoring is easy and the teacher can activate the student's in several ways. The teacher can be sure the students are doing the right things. Therefore the teacher can focus on teaching instead of managing technology.
Rehearse
Construct
NetSupport schools can be used for delivering content to the whole class and also for very individual guidance. Change to add lesson objectives and outcomes is a great way to make them visible for learners and that way help their reflection, and tools like tasklist give structure to learning. The interaction tools promote rehearsing and revision (Question-Answer, Test Console), as well as more creative and open-ended work (presentation and white-board, file sharing options).
Linear
Non-linear/Creative
The teacher can compare students' progress easily using the product. All students can do the same activities or different, depending on the teacher's plan. There are some great tools for giving both open assignments and more linear and fixed tasks. The Journal helps to document progress and gives a chance for continuous note-taking.
Individual
Collaborative
NetSupport School is build to help collaboration between teachers and students, but there are also great features that allow student-to-student collaboration and teamwork, such as question-answer in teams. A chance to have a shared journal and a way of letting several students to use the whiteboard at the time allow for easy sharing.
