Rapid developments in the digital world have revolutionized the educational landscape with the wide use of technological gadgets and uninterrupted internet access. Blackboards and notebooks have been replaced by interactive whiteboards, projectors, smartphones, and tablets. About 91% of the school administrators are of the opinion that technology can play a key role in enhancing student achievement and participation in the class in future.
While the smart classroom infrastructure is improving students’ experience towards learning, it also distracts them in multiple ways. If students have access to any device with internet in the classroom, they can easily yield to tempting diversions, such as playing video games, browsing websites not related to the class content, or installing unnecessary applications that pose virus/malware threats. Thus, it has become very difficult for the teachers to monitor what information the students are consuming through their machines in a digital classroom environment. Moreover, social media platforms and gaming applications have considerably reduced the attention span of students, making classroom management a challenging task for the instructors.
So, what can the teachers do to eliminate the requirement of walking up and down the whole class to monitor each student? Faronics Insight offers the most convenient solution.
With this robust classroom management solution, teachers can eliminate distractions in the class and focus more on teaching. It offers smart classroom management tools through which teachers can expedite the coursework and ensure that every student has benefitted from the lecture.

The vision behind Insight
With the educational landscape being transformed by cutting-edge technologies, Faronics Insight was developed to meet the market demand for an effective classroom management software.
