NetRef, a smarter school Internet management tool, eliminates Internet distractions in the classroom. Developed with teachers, NetRef offers easy, one-touch controls that empower educators to control students’ web use — no IT experience needed. NetRef provides timeframes of when students have gone off task, allows teachers to lock down and whitelist web activity, and offers detailed reporting on Internet usage by student, class or school. The patent-pending approach ensures no individual app downloads are needed. NetRef is truly device independent — it works for all iOS, Android, Chromebook, Windows and other Internet-connected devices.
