Mobility and Technology are transforming Education. While they offer an untold number of ways to engage students and create an interactive classroom, the trick is to keep the technology functioning and the teachers in control of the learning environment. CTS makes best-in-class tools available to our Education customers.

Classroom Management

Mobile devices for students create opportunities to learn in more engaging and interactive ways and to foster collaboration. Teachers, however, must be able to monitor what their pupils are viewing and be able to command the attention of their entire class. No teacher should be in a school room without this; classroom management enables them to:

  • See a thumbnail of each student screen
  • Blank screens to pull the focus to the front of the classroom
  • Share the teacher’s screen with the students
  • Send messages to assist students
  • Distribute and collect homework assignments

Content Development

Students learn best when lessons are engaging and interactive. Coursework can easily be converted from flat, static content such as worksheets and videos into dynamic, digital lessons. CTS offers a tool that enables you to do just that. The advantages for the classroom and school district include:

  • Students receive instant feedback
  • Problems are auto-graded, saving teachers hours
  • Real-time digital dashboards show instructors where the class needs more drilling and which students are struggling
  • Differentiates content for individual students and student groups
  • Coursework can be shared across the district

Mobile Devices

Education was one of the earliest adopters of mobile technology, recognizing that it increases student engagement. Whether your district is 1:1, has a cart of devices for every classroom or are still developing your strategy, CTS can help you find the right mobile devices to keep your students engaged.

  • Android devices create a learning environment that is both controlled and collaborative.
