Background: NetRef has facilitated our successful transition to BYOD. With NetRef, teachers can easily select the websites they want their students to access and have confidence that students are on task. The step-by-step instructions for loading the app were spot on and our teachers are empowered to incorporate the Internet into their lesson plans knowing how easy it is to manage with NetRef.”
