Why use SMART Sync™?
Key differentiators & advantages of SMART Sync™
Keep students focused on learning:SMART Sync has a practical set of features that enable smooth transitions between individual, small group and whole class activities, helping you make the most of class time.This classroom management software lets you view student screens on your computer desktop, making it easy to monitor their activities and provide guidance and support throughout the lesson. With SMART Sync, you can interact with your students as a group or individually to keep them engaged and focused.Enable collaboration:With SMART Sync, you can organize small groups of students and guide their process of collaboration, while still maintaining whole-class instruction. With this software, it's easy to promote individual, small-group and whole-class learning in a single lesson. Give students an assignment to work on individually, then use SMART Sync to randomly organize them into small groups, so they can team up and develop a consensus by sharing screens and collaborating. At the end of the assignment, you can broadcast each group's work to the entire class for further discussion.Help students stay on track:Sometimes students can get distracted by the temptations of the digital world. Now you can help them stay on course. SMART Sync allows you to choose which websites and applications your students have access to, and if you need to get everyone's attention, you can lock all student computer screens with the push of a button.Connect to your students and your network:Use SMART Sync in your wireless computer environments. This software enables you to quickly connect and stay connected to your school network, so you can focus on guiding and supporting your students' learning, instead of dealing with connectivity issues. The software also works within existing wired computer classrooms, making it perfect for desktop and laptop environments.Monitor activity with ease:With SMART Sync, you can see what all your students are working on at any given time. The software enables you to observe each student's computer from your own screen.Provide direct support:In every class, there are always a few students who are too shy to ask for help. With SMART Sync, you can communicate privately to individual students or groups, and guide them through a task or problem.Get more out of 1:1 learning:To further boost the potential of your 1:1 environments, SMART Sync is also available as part of SMART Classroom Suite interactive learning software. This suite of four powerful and easy-to-use software applications is designed to support the key stages of teaching and learning – from lesson creation and delivery to student assessment.
