New App from Netop Makes Teaching in iPad Classrooms Easier, More Effective
(PORTLAND, Ore. – Oct. 21, 2014) Today Netop announced that the Vision ME iPad® classroom workflow app, designed to make teaching in iPad classrooms easier and more effective, is now available in the App Store.
“Teachers are hungry for a simple, engaging way to teach in paperless classrooms,” said Kurt Bager, CEO of Netop. “Our commitment is to create solutions that help teachers use technology in ways that maximize instructional time. We’re confident that Vision ME will allow educators to more effectively and easily integrate iPads into teaching and learning.”
Vision ME combines teaching tools with mobile device management (MDM) capabilities to provide a classroom workflow app that engages students and improves learning outcomes in iPad classrooms. It allows teachers to present lessons directly on classroom iPads, showcase student work, blank student screens, block Internet access with the click of a button, administer web-based tests and quizzes, and more.
“Teachers who participated in Vision ME beta testing told us that they believe the product has the potential to change the way educators think about teaching in iPad classrooms,” said Ronny Tovgaard, Netop’s senior vice president of education. “They love the collaborative features, such as the screen sharing and chat functions. They also like the MDM-supported functions, such as the ability to block and focus student internet activity. Above all, teachers want the ability to actively engage students while maintaining a certain level of control in a classroom of devices—Vision Me gives them that.”
Three components are needed to use the app: the Vision ME teacher and Vision ME student apps, which are available to download for free on the App Store; and the web-based online learning and assessment tool, the Learning Center, which can be accessed from Netop’s Vision ME web page.
Pricing starts at $7.50 per user, with volume discounts available. For a free 30-day trial of Vision ME, visit http://www.netop.com/visionme.
