No matter how advanced, innovative, and curriculum-based online educational tools are, they are only effective if students actually use them.
How do educators gain insights into what websites students are actually visiting?
Student Web Activity
The Kajeet Sentinel® platform was developed to meet this pressing need. Sentinel empowers education administrators with detailed, real-time metrics on student activity on the web. The robust filtering capabilities enabled by Kajeet allow administrators to grant students access to educational sites and to block them from accessing sites that are not school-related.
Educators may log into Sentinel at any time to track student online activity on their school-issued Kajeet devices – including both sites they successfully visit, as well as sites they attempt to visit but are blocked from. This data allows them to make informed decisions about what online tools are proving effective for their students, and which may need further evaluation.
