PORTLAND, Ore., & LANGENTHAL, Switzerland – May 22, 2007 – When school districts, such as Indianapolis Public Schools and Florida?s Brevard County Schools, are looking for ways to help teachers integrate technology into teaching, they are increasingly turning to classroom management software and are choosing Vision® from GenevaLogic
In fact, GenevaLogic is seeing rapid growth in the adoption of its classroom management software. In just the first quarter of 2007, the company?s U.S. sales increased by more than 50 percent over 2006.

A district committed to using technology to enhance education, Indianapolis Public Schools has each classroom wired for Internet access.

"With GenevaLogic?s classroom management software, we are maximizing our investment in hardware, software and Internet access, by putting a powerful tool for using technology to engage students in learning in our teachers? hands."
Other districts are choosing GenevaLogic?s classroom management software to support particular instructional programs. After using Vision in a number of classrooms, Brevard County School District in Florida, one of the 50 largest U.S. school districts, recently purchased site licenses to extend the use of Vision, Surf-Lock and App-Control to 10 of its high schools with career and technical education programs.
At the core of GenevaLogic?s classroom management solution 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. First launched in 1996, Vision is currently used in more than 50,000 classrooms worldwide.
Vision6 is enhanced by App-Control, Surf?Lock2 and other plug-ins that extend its functionality to meet each school?s unique needs. 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.
