Abre’s Focus App provides a secure browser experience for classroom instruction.
During Guided Practice, my students complete a close reading of John Smith’s account of his voyage to Jamestown. After the reading, they participate in an online discussion using Google Classroom.
Abre saves me time setting up digital classwork. I can focus more on my students instead of anchored to my laptop monitoring students.
How this Works
Create a Guided Lesson
Teachers can list the websites they want their students to visit. Teachers can also set permission levels on websites visited – from least to most restrictive.
Kiosk App for Chromebooks. Extension for all else.
Students launch Focus with a code. Once launched, they can only visit the websites approved by their teacher.
Split Screen Favorites
Students can split screen between two websites for dual focus skills. For example, when using a Google Doc while reading primary text.
