					NetSupport School's New Android Tablet Support Embraces the Mobile Learning Environment


Education software specialist NetSupport is delighted to announce the latest update to its leading classroom
management and instruction tool, NetSupport School (v 11.30), introducing support for Android tablets.

Online PR News – 28-June-2013 – The NetSupport School Student for Android gives teachers the power to
interact with students’ tablets from their desktop*, delivering engaging real-time instruction and support within
the flexibility of a mobile environment.


“Given the increased access today’s students have to mobile technology, it’s great that schools have been
quick to recognize the role that tablet devices can play in the classroom,” said Al Kingsley, NetSupport’s
Managing Director. “For classroom management vendors such as ourselves, it’s vital that we continually
develop not only the feature set of our solutions but also ensure our platform support is as broad as possible
and accommodates the latest developments in IT helping teachers to remain in control of computer-led
collaboration and assessment and encouraging students to engage with classroom technology and
peer-based learning.”


As well as NetSupport School’s chat, message and request help capabilities, other key instructional tools
available for teachers to use with student Android tablets include: the ability to broadcast their screen directly
to tablets; lock tablet screens to gain attention; involve students in class surveys; and display lesson
objectives and expected outcomes.


With education investing heavily in the latest innovative classroom technologies and embracing the move
towards BYOD learning environments, this is a timely extension to NetSupport School’s cross-platform
support and comes hot on the heels of the recent addition of Windows 8, Google Chrome OS support;
NetSupport’s compatible Mac and Linux sister product, NetSupport Assist; and, for the mobile teacher or
teaching assistant, the Tutor Assistant app that runs on both tablets and smartphones (Apple, Android and
Kindle).


The NetSupport School Student for Android app is available as a free download for existing customers, or to
evaluate, from Google Play.
