SAN RAMON, CA, June 26, 2007 — Teachers, educational coordinators, and IT administrators attending
the second day of this year’s NECC event were delighted with the launch of Faronics Insight, the ultimate
classroom management solution that empowers teachers with full control over classroom computers and
student attention. Faronics took the opportunity to showcase how Insight fosters cooperative classrooms
where learning is achieved through interaction and collaboration among the students themselves, and with
Teachers loved the fact that they can share their screen with students, provide remote assistance to students from a central console, and monitor classroom screens to ensure students are on task. Students even have the ability to request and receive help directly in their workstation session, and have their voice heard through classroom voting. With the power to disable applications, Internet access, and blank student screens, teachers can quickly gain student attention when required.
The ability to monitor student progress strengthens teaching effectiveness and ensures that teachers always have full control over classroom progress and activities. Teachers can ensure that students are kept on task and engaged in an environment where technology accelerates the learning experience.
“Teachers have been asking for a solution that captures the educational and productive aspects of computers while removing a workstation’s distractive elements and temptations,” said Victor Gonzalez, Product Manager for Insight. “Faronics is committed to delivering solutions that fit and exceed the needs of our customers, and Insight is definitely proof of that.”
A free, fully functional 30-day evaluation version of Insight can be downloaded at www.faronics.com for the Windows operating systems. Faronics Insight is changing the way technology is viewed in the classroom for both students and teachers alike.
Faronics delivers market-leading solutions that help manage, simplify, and secure complex IT environments.
Our products ensure 100% workstation availability, and have dramatically impacted the day-to-day lives of
thousands of information technology professionals. Fueled by a customer-centric focus, Faronics’ technology innovations benefit educational institutions, healthcare facilities, libraries, government organizations and corporations.
