ORLANDO, Fla. – Jan. 24, 2007 – Today at the 2007 Florida Educational Technology Conference (FETC), GenevaLogic debuted the Vision® Class Kit, the Vision School Kit and the Vision School Kit Plus – which provide both individual classrooms and entire schools with essential classroom management tools for easy and effective teaching with computers. The foundation of all three kits is Vision6, the newest version of GenevaLogic´s easy-to-use classroom management software that allows teachers to manage, control and optimize the use of technology to support instruction.
"At GenevaLogic, we are committed to partnering with educators to develop innovative solutions that help them use technology to improve student learning," said Kirk Greiner, chief executive officer. "We developed these new kits so schools would have easy and cost-effective ways to put our most requested classroom management software tools at their teachers´ fingertips."
In the Vision Class Kit, GenevaLogic bundled its most popular products into an easy-to-use kit at a cost-effective price. In addition to Vision, the Vision Class Kit includes two popular plug-ins, App-Control and Surf"Lock2. App-Control allows teachers to keep the whole class learning together by remotely launching applications, sharing documents and managing access to applications on all student computers. Using Surf"Lock2, teachers turn browsing on or off from their computer with a single click, allow students access only to selected Web sites that support instruction, and stop or limit Web browsing instantly for a single student or the entire class.
For schools that want to provide classroom management software tools to numerous classrooms or in multiple computer labs, GenevaLogic developed the Vision School Kit. With the Vision School Kit, an entire school is equipped to manage classroom computer activity, guide student learning on computers and teach effectively with technology. The Vision School Kit includes school-wide licenses for Vision6; App-Control; SurfLock2; and Pointer, a plug-in that allows teachers to annotate text or graphics on the computer while teaching. Teacher training materials are also included in this package.
With the Vision School Kit Plus, schools customize their classroom management software system by adding either Protect-On2 for student desktop security or Print-Limit Pro" for school-wide print management. With Protect-On, teachers save and restore the original configuration of classroom computers, avoiding viruses, frustrating downtime or unwanted downloads with a quick restart. Print-Limit Pro allows schools to easily and efficiently manage printing across large, multi-platform environments.
The new classroom management software kits from GenevaLogic are economically priced to meet the varying needs of K-12 schools. The Vision Class Kit is available for $999 per lab or classroom, with a limit of two per school. A site license for the Vision School Kit is $3,999 for schools with fewer than 1,000 students and $4,499 for schools with 1,000 or more students. Site licenses for the comprehensive set of classroom management software tools offered in the Vision School Kit Plus are $4,999 for schools with fewer than 1,000 students and $5,999 for schools with 1,000 or more students.
