Classroom Management in the Web 2.0 Era

This product was advertised on another website, and I thought that it put an interesting spin on the whole idea of classroom management, not to mention the socially networked classroom:

NetSupport School is a class leading training software solution, providing Teachers with the ability to instruct, monitor and interact with their Students either individually, as a pre-defined group or to the overall class.

Combining advanced classroom PC monitoring, real-time Presentation and Annotation tools, with an innovative customised Testing suite, Internet and Application control, real-time audio monitoring, automated Lesson Plans, Printer Management, Instant Messenger control, Content Monitoring and Desktop Security, this latest version of NetSupport School rises to the challenge and requirements of today’s modern classroom.

    I like their ability to monitor students’ screens – knew it was possible, didn’t know if it was commercially available. Definitely needed for the responsible teacher supervising computer kids. Is good to see options ranging from small-images of all class screens through to full size of one student’s.
    Ye gods, what would it cost, though?

    There are more and more commercial packages around. With commercial packages, you typically trade off security and stability against freedom and creativity. It all depends what your priorities are in a given context.

    PS – You seem to have come up with a solution to the embedding of your Twitter feed!
