Hapara today announced immediate availability of a special bundle of products in Google’s Education Apps Pack, exclusively for Google Chromebook customers. Hapara’s flagship Teacher Dashboard for Google Apps product, along with Remote Control for Chromebooks, was selected by Google to be made directly available to schools and districts using Google’s Chromebook Management Console.
“Hapara solutions help teachers and schools make effective use of Google Apps for Education, improving student outcomes and increasing online safety” says Jan Zawadzki, Founder of Hapara. “With Teacher Dashboard teachers can easily track student activity and engagement. Bundled with our Remote Control for Chromebooks add-on, teachers can manage their digital classrooms in real-time. We are excited to be a part of Google Education Apps Pack - to help transform more classrooms into collaborative, digitally-rich environments for learning.”
Both Teacher Dashboard and Remote Control for Chromebooks are now available through the Google Education Apps Pack. Together, the tools structure Google Apps to look like teachers’ classrooms, giving teachers and school leaders a bird’s-eye view of all student activity across Docs, Sites, Blogger, Picasa & Gmail, as well as the ability to review and guide students activity on their Chromebooks in real-time.
“Teacher Dashboard is essential for using Google Apps in the classroom,” says James Sanders, Innovation Manager, KIPP Bay Area Schools. “Everything is right there in one centralized location. I don’t know how we managed without it.”
