Netop has released new versions of its bestselling classroom management software that introduce core classroom management features for Mac student computers in addition to improved browser support.
According to a recent survey by the Center for Digital Education and the National School Boards Association, implementation of BYOD programs in school districts more than doubled in the last year -- from 22 to 56 percent. While the trend is primarily seen in high schools (84 percent) and middle schools (74 percent), the majority of elementary schools also allow students to bring their personal devices to school.
Developed for mixed classrooms and BYOD environments, Vision and Vision Pro 8.6 offer the key classroom management features that make learning and teaching with technology easy and effective, the announcement states. Teachers can share their computer screen, supervise activity on student computers, assist students remotely, blank screens and turn the internet on or off. Browser support is now enhanced, and the blocking features in Vision (Lock Web, Filter Web) now work with the latest version of Firefox.

Version 8.6 of Vision Pro is available at no extra charge to existing customers who have a current Advantage program as of May 20, 2014.
