Do You KNOW what your students are doing?

DyKnow is a must have for any school that utilizes technology on a regular basis. Yes, it is important that teachers are up and walking around to check what students are doing, but students are VERY sneaky and they can often hide things with just a single swipe. With DyKnow, teachers have instant access to the student across the room or even the student in study hall who SHOULD be working on homework. I've even used it from home when I have a sub so my kids at school know I'm always watching. DyKnow helps students stay on task, and it is an essential tool in a 1:1 school like mine.

Pros

Teachers can instantly access one student's screen or the whole class's. I can also block or restrict certain sites. This is especially awesome when we are doing an online quiz. No Googling for answers!

Cons

Sometimes it lags and it makes it difficult to monitor. This is not the norm, however.

Response from DyKnow

I have anxiously waited for and embraced this technology since day one. I am so happy that our school district realized the importance of have such a useful tool. One of my favorite aspects is the ability to be able to print which website students have been using or trying to use. I will take that information to a parent/teacher conference and the students never see it coming and the parents are usually shocked! It speaks for itself. One feature that I have recommended was one whereby a teacher could share their blocking plan with another teacher, content area, grade level, etc. Finally, I would like to see an easier way to "capture" a screen shot. Having to copy and paste into a Word document, then save it, can be tedious. Overall, the best thing that our district has ever invested in.

Response from DyKnow

Hi Christopher - Wow! Thanks so much for sharing your positive experiences with us :) We love hearing DyKnow has been a valuable addition to your classroom!

Thanks for the idea to share blocking plans between teachers, I have mentioned this to our Product Manager for a future enhancement!

I like DyKnow when it is working properly. It may just be our school district's internet, but DyKnow takes so long to load that I end up walking away before I can use it. Also, there are almost always 1-3 students whose computers don't show up on DyKnow. I do like the analytics feature, and the feature to message a student even while I am away from school. If it loaded faster, it would be a lot more useful.

Pros

The analytics feature and being able to track what students have been doing. I also use it to show students' work on the screen.

Cons

It works way too slow to use it much in real time.

Response from DyKnow

Hi Pam! We haven't heard this overall slowness reported from anyone else, especially at Reeds Spring. It could be that your classroom is located in a spot that's not super convenient to a WIFI access point? I'm so glad to hear you find value in our Analytics :) That's a great way to just "start and stop" DyKnow and then take a look at class time activity. We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback!

As the DyKnow admin, I have to say that the ease of use in Cloud far exceeds the previous DyKnow Monitor. I am especially appreciative of your efforts to continually improve the product by taking the advice and suggestions from your customers. Your support team is attentive and knowledgeable and can answer questions in "English"--unlike some other IT support teams that I personally think make up big words to confuse the customer. : )

Thanks for all you do to keep us up and running.

Pros

Various ways you can monitor students--not just thumbnails. The Activity Trackers is a great addition. Segmented blocking was greatly appreciated too.

Cons

Of course some of our teachers still bemoan the loss of some of the "Vision" features.

Response from DyKnow

Thanks for the feedback, Sandra!! We love serving STM classrooms :)

I teach middle school, and anytime my students are on their chromebooks, I use Dyknow. I know whenever they try to sneak away from our assignment to check their email, surf the web, or to do anything else. It's easy to use and very effective. I have stopped several fights due to emails popping up and me accidentally seeing what was about to happen... When a student strays from an assignment, I can easily send them a private message saying to get back to work. They then know I'm watching them, and very rarely do I ever have a kid commit a second offense. The program is very efficient and even teachers with very little technology experience can use it.

Pros

Easy, quick, and efficient to use.

Cons

Sometimes a few kids don't come up. If they don't come up, we can't keep an eye on what they're doing.

Response from DyKnow

Hi Hollie - we really appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. Thank you! I'm so glad to hear DyKnow is valuable to your classroom :) Any time a student doesn't appear in your class, a great first step is to ask the student to restart their device.

This software enables users to monitor the activities of students on their computers. Before Dyknow we had to situate monitors facing a teacher desk or constantly move around the room to check on what students are doing. This made small group instruction nearly impossible!! Now we can monitor in real time from one screen and check history if questions arise. Dyknow will also allow me to send messages to select students or the entire group so now I don't have to speak across the class to ask for small flexible groups to come and meet. A simple silent message to targeted students is all that is needed. My voicebox thanks you! I can also send out a link when it is time to move on to new instruction and the computers will go there directly instead of me needing to walk around and fix everyone's link or find their bookmarks. I can also block sites that students keep going to everytime I turn my back. You can even make groups of students with certain websites allowed or blocked. That means trustworthy student might be able to access sites like you tube when other students are blocked. It's a great investment.

Pros

It does so so much to help me manage the computers in class in a way that enables me to multi-task.

Cons

It can get slow and crashes more often than I would desire.

We've been using DyKnow in some form since 2010, and it has proven to be a huge help in managing distractions. The newer Cloud version is easy to use on the teacher side--it's highly intuitive and has a simple UI. I primarily use an "Allow Only" plan, which lets students access a preset list of sites and apps that we regularly use in class, but it's quick and easy to edit the blocking plan you're using (where you get the option of making a change only for the current session, or save it as a permanent change), switch to a "Block Only" plan, or just release the students from blocking entirely and block sites/apps on the fly if you need to.

A few things I've appreciated:
- Segmented blocking - This is especially useful when students are working in groups, taking tests (students who finish can be released to a different blocking plan), or when a student is absent but happens to be using their laptop during class.
- Timed blocking - This is awesome for those of us who sometimes forget to release the students when class ends...
- The activity tracker - An easy way to know at a glance what the students are doing.
- Adding apps - DyKnow customer support has been really quick to respond when an app isn't in their database--I can't think of a time when I had to wait longer than a day for them to act on a request.

One feature I miss from the old desktop version is the chat feature, which I used to use to allow students to ask questions during tests. Cloud does have tools for teachers to send out messages and multiple choice/true-false/yes-no questions, but doesn't (yet?) have a way for students to ask their own questions. The ability to push documents to students was nice too, but we have other tools for that now, so I don't really miss it.

The product is really easy to use. Very intuitive and visual. There are a couple of features I wish it had. The questions sections could use the ability to organize it into units or themes. I would like the ability to send messages to students from the class view, instead of having to go to the specific student view first. Also, the program is a little slow to respond and load. That could be improved. Overall this is a really good program and I use it often for a variety of things.

Pros

I've found that this software is a very simple and effective way to limit distraction in the classroom. The black and white data shows, without bias, whether the student was engaged with the content or choosing to wander the internet. This software is helpful in gaining an understanding of a student's pattern in classroom behavior, leading to conversations between students, parents, and educators concerning what may be best for their child's success.

Pros

The ability to track history over specific ranges of time; the past 6 months, the past year, since the beginning of class, in the past week, etc.

Cons

Unlocking a student's screen can sometimes be more difficult than it should be.

I really enjoy the functionality and features of DyKnow Cloud but still miss DyKnow Vision greatly. I loved the interactive nature of the program and my ability to control certain aspects of teaching/presentation/assessing. DyKnow Vision was a 5-star tool; DyKnow Cloud/Monitor is more a 3 or 4-star program--largely because it doesn't transform instruction the way the the other tool did.

Pros

The ability to keep my students focused and free from distraction; also the ability to share screens/student work with other students.

Cons

Sometimes I get frustrated with waiting for the bubbles to "explode"--a problem I did not have with DyKnow Vision--and I greatly miss the features DyKnow Vision provided for guided and interactive learning.

Response from DyKnow

Good monitoring tool to make sure that technology used within the classroom is being truly used as a learning tool rather than a tool for distraction. Has support for all devices that our school uses. Good reporting.

Cons

My only concern is the response time - particularly upon logging in to a class and logging out, but that's a minor detail compared to all this application can do!

Pros

I like the ability to filter out or filter in certain sites/apps.

Cons

The time it takes to close out of the class and the ability of the kids to get past the software - problems that we'd probably have no matter what software we used.

Hi Lori, thanks so much for taking the time to share your feedback, we appreciate it! The district may be able to update some Chromebook management settings to help with the times students appear to be circumventing DyKnow; there is usually an explanation for this :)

DyKnow has been a Godsend as far as being able to make sure my students are on task in class. Customer service has been very responsive to any needs I had as I was getting comfortable with the features of the program too. Now that I have it I couldn't imagine class without it!

Pros

Ability to manage my students' Chromebook usage

Cons
