Today was a MUCH better school day . . . insert happy face. The kids put forth a much better effort.
I do have a few changes that will be taking place in the next few weeks for our little home school. One problem we have found in using the online school is that the kids quickly learn they can fast forward through a lesson. The parents section online shows the progress of the students and each online class. It does not show if the student has fast forwarded their lesson. The kids have a surprise on the horizon . . . a teacher's computer classroom monitoring software. The software allows the teacher to view each student's computer to see what they are doing, if they are on task and even if they are fast forwarding. The teacher can also lock the keyboard, mouse and even freeze the computer. There are so many advantages to the software.
This is the software I chose: NETOP
I can't wait to get it installed and setup! Woo Hoo!
