Bringing classroom management to the cloud
With schools everywhere quickly learning to adapt to distance learning in 2020, many educators are now beginning to realise the importance of putting a powerful, easy to use all in one Cloud-based Classroom Management Solution in place.
LanSchool Air masterfully brings LanSchool’s renowned classroom orchestration software to the cloud, making it the perfect tool for distance learning, assisting educators in ensuring students are focused and fully engaged in online classes when working remotely.
Recent studies suggest the biggest challenge facing teachers and students in remote learning is a lack of engagement. Being away from the classroom increases the risk of distractions, a failure to communicate effectively and less focus on tending to the individual needs of students.

What our customers say
I have used LanSchool previously when I was a trainee teacher and it was a complete game-changer for teaching. It really helps to improve the quality of lessons, which is reflected in lesson observation feedback.
It offers a range of functions that enable students work to be shown and made more interactive. Additionally, it helps keep student on-track by regulating the content they can browse online.
Very much looking forward to having this in my department as I know it will be a massive benefit to teachers and students alike.
