The new web interface of version C1.1 can be accessed from any browser using the internet. Impero Education Pro combines three core modules into a single, seamless user interface, designed to offer schools and districts the three essential elements for digital learning to thrive – classroom management, network management and student online safety. It provides intelligent search functionality, intuitive navigation and integration with other Impero products. The three modules are:
Impero EdTeach for classroom management provides multi-device monitoring, including the ability to remotely view, manage and control devices such as Chromebooks, Windows, Mac and iOS to support schools with 1:1 programs. Teachers can monitor students’ screens in real time, share content with students, and control or lock student devices to keep students focused. EdTeach integrates with Google Classroom and provides messaging and live chat features.
Impero EdProtect for student safety allows counselors, teachers or administrators to receive real-time alerts if students type or search for keywords and phrases that may indicate concerns around bullying, self-harm, suicide, mental health and more. Impero works with charities and specialist organizations such as Mental Health America (MHA), the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF), and SafeBAE to develop comprehensive keyword libraries covering a broad range of safeguarding and student welfare issues. Screenshots and video recordings of these captures provide contextual insight so schools can provide counter narratives, support, and can intervene before an incident escalates.
Impero EdAdmin for network management allows schools to remotely track, monitor, and manage resources across a school network, remotely reset passwords, and set computers to power on or off at certain times.
In addition, Impero recently announced the launch of EdAware, a next-generation digital student safety solution. Schools use Impero EdAware to record, analyze and store multiple types of student safety information, from depressive episodes to risky online behavior, to help identify potential safety risks and enable informed counseling sessions, behavior management conversations and safeguarding interventions. Impero EdAware integrates with the provider’s Impero EdProtect module (also available as part of the Impero Education Pro suite), making it a comprehensive safeguarding solution for both online and offline safety concerns.
