Boca Raton, Florida (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
CrossTec Software has announced the addition of Android student tablet support to its award-winning classroom management and instruction tool, CrossTec SchoolVue (v 11.30).
CrossTec’s SchoolVue Android Student enables teachers to interact with their students’ Android tablets from their desktop and to provide engaging real-time instruction and management of the popular tablet platform. CrossTec SchoolVue for Android includes chat and request help functionality along with the ability to broadcast the teacher’s screen directly to student tablets; lock tablet screens to gain attention; engage students with class surveys; display lesson objectives, and more.
According to IDC (2013), tablet sales worldwide grew 75.3% to more than 128 million units in 2012. Android-based tablets expanded their share of the market and are expected to account for 48.8% of tablet sales in 2013.
“Schools and districts are looking to adopt Android tablets for a variety of reasons including lower costs,” said Jeff Richards, Vice President at CrossTec Software. “But early adopters report one of the biggest challenges is the management of these devices in labs. Besides the ability to interact with students, CrossTec SchoolVue now provides technology instructors with the ideal solution to lock Android tablets during a lesson to get the student’s full attention, and to broadcast their screen onto the student’s device so every student has a front row seat.”
The SchoolVue Student for Android App includes:
Support for Android tablets adds to SchoolVue’s powerful cross-platform support and comes on the heels of recent releases for Windows 8 and the Google Chrome OS. SchoolVue v11 added the SchoolVue Teacher Assistant for mobile devices including Android and iOS while CrossTec’s Vue X is compatible with Mac and Linux PCs offering many of the same classroom management features as found in SchoolVue for PCs.
The CrossTec SchoolVue Student for Android app is available as a free download for existing customers from Google Play and requires the SchoolVue 11.3 Teacher. For more information on SchoolVue visit crosstecsoftware.com.
