Are your EdTech investments paying off?

Know what programs are being used, and give teachers a tool to identify gaps and increase time on task.

For Teachers

Turn a potential distraction into a powerful learning tool that keeps students on task.

NetRef serves as a classroom Internet monitor, and its simple controls enable teachers to control Internet activity in real time on any school- or student-owned device. Use NetRef as an Internet filter to lock down browsers and allow, block or whitelist web browsing, apps, texting, instant messaging, social media, and games. No downloads or IT needed.

For IT & Administrators

Simplify Internet management in BYOD and 1:1 schools, and ensure that online learning contributes to positive, productive learning environments.

NetRef’s district- and school-wide Internet reporting allows IT staff to monitor and reduce spending on apps and programs that aren’t being used effectively. Administrators can use detailed reports to share with parents how online programs support learning and to gather insight into Internet use for budgeting and instruction. All of this can be done with no downloads on student devices.
