As more students are learning away from the school environment, digital monitoring can help you identify which students might need help, be struggling or need intervention. It works by monitoring what is viewed or typed on a keyboard on an internet connected device and if the software detects any concerning words, phrases or changes of behaviour, it will send an alert to their human moderation team for review.
Practical advice from Schools ICT
As you prepare for the return of more staff and pupils we have the following advice and guidance for bringing your ICT out of lockdown. The whole of Schools ICT are ready to help including all of our Technical Support staff - on the phone and in the field, Network Managers, MIS Team, Web Development Team, Sales Team and the School Technicians.
Support for your online learning
Over the last few weeks Microsoft Teams, which is part of the Microsoft 365 suite, has proven to be the ideal tool to use as an online learning environment to ensure teachers can easily deliver resources to students and communicate, all in one place.
Microsoft Teams or Google Classroom
To help schools deliver remote learning the Department for Education is offering to pay for the installation of Google’s G Suite for Education (including Google Classroom in schools) or Microsoft Teams.
