NetSupport today announced that its award-winning solution for classroom management, online safety and device management, classroom.cloud, will link directly to Natterhub (a UK-based online safety platform and interactive lesson library) from its new ‘Connectors’ section for complementary EdTech solutions.
With the increased reliance on technology, concerns around students’ safety and wellbeing are at an all-time high, and schools are constantly reviewing how to help them become thoughtful and safety-conscious citizens in our digital culture.
NetSupport has always been focused on student wellbeing and has continuously refined its solutions, such as by adding a new online safety toolkit in classroom.cloud to support schools’ efforts in keeping students safe as they learn online. Going one step further, its new ‘Connectors’ section allows seamless access for staff to access a rich ecosystem of complementary EdTech solutions for their school.
CEO of NetSupport, Al Kingsley, comments: “It’s important to recognise that student wellbeing is supported by many components. Integrating with Natterhub made perfect sense to help schools access complementary digital citizenship and online safety solutions and beyond that, it’s a brilliant solution.”
Manjit Sareen, CEO of Natterhub, said: “To have the chance to integrate our online safety and digital citizenship hub with classroom.cloud is an incredible opportunity for us. We are passionate about educating as many pupils as possible to be safe, savvy and kind internet users”. Natterhub’s co-founder and educator, Caroline Allams, added: “It’s critical that children are taught the necessary digital soft skills because wherever there’s technology, there’s online vulnerability – and classroom.cloud is a perfect alignment for our mission.”
When it comes to integration, classroom.cloud also links directly to My Concern, CPOMS – and, for technology management, with Google Classroom, ClassLink, Microsoft School Data Sync and Microsoft Office 365.
Already deployed by schools, MATs, and Ministries of Education across the world, from the US to the UK, UAE, and beyond, classroom.cloud provides award-winning teaching, classroom management, online safety, and device management tools. From screen sharing and monitoring (all within one environment) to remote control and assessment tools, classroom.cloud makes it easy to lead learning in classrooms and with remote learners.
Natterhub is a UK based online safety platform and interactive lesson library for teaching children aged 5-11 years to thrive online. Dealing with global issues around screen-based behaviour and children on the internet, Natterhub is suitable for all classrooms looking to teach media literacy in an innovative, immersive environment.
