Smart introduces Mac software

Smart Technologies has announced that Smart Sync 2010 classroom management software is now available for the Mac platform.

SMART Sync 2010 for Mac is said to enhance the teaching and learning experience in computer-enabled classrooms, allowing teachers to monitor and guide student learning. The software allows teachers to perform a variety of classroom management tasks, including monitoring thumbnail images of each student’s computer, and controlling any computer to highlight a student’s work or to bring them back on task.
Teachers can transfer and open files directly on student computers, or broadcast shared screens to one or all members of the class. The control functions enable teachers to block specific websites, applications, or the Internet as a whole, or lock student workstations to return attention to the front of the class.
