Digital Crisis Averted: Classroom Management Systems for Digital Conversion

Last year Floyd County began the digital conversion for grades 5 and 9. As a 9th grade English teacher, I was part of this first digital conversion group. After a year of both struggles and successes with digital conversion, I decided this year I would make an effort to fix some of the problems we experienced last year. The ARI mini-grant will provide a program called Netop Vision Pro. This program gives a teacher the capability to see every laptop screen in the classroom. The teacher can live stream any program, video or activity directly from their laptop screen to the students’ screens. The teacher can also manage classroom behavior by turning screens off and controlling what students are doing on their laptops at any given time. This program will revolutionize my classroom by allowing me to teach from the front of the classroom. It will also enhance my classroom by making the sharing of materials easier.
