“Technology is an even more powerful tool when it’s a seamless part of teaching and learning,” said Julie Smith, vice president of K-12, CDW-G. “Hapara’s Teacher Dashboard and Remote Control address some of the most critical needs of the collaborative learning environment – digital organization and classroom management.”
Hapara Teacher Dashboard organizes the Google environment the same way that teachers do – around their students and classes. Using Teacher Dashboard, teachers can quickly and easily organize, view and respond to student work across all Google Apps – Docs, Sites, Blogger, Calendars, Picasa, Gmail and even Google+. As a result, teachers are able to provide students with timely, targeted feedback, while gaining more time to focus on improving student achievement. Hapara Remote Control is an add-on feature for Chromebooks that enables teachers to see what students are doing online and ensures that they are on task and safe.
“Google Apps coupled with the right computing devices offers a significant opportunity for teachers to increase student engagement,” said Jan Zawadzki, cofounder of Hapara. “To do that, not only must educators bring their expertise to bear, they must also overcome the knowledge management challenge posed by teaching in a 21st century learning environment. Working with CDW-G, we can offer a technology solution that will empower educators to transform the learning environment and improve student outcomes.”
