How Does It Work?

1. Install Appliance

Schools easily add the NetRef Appliance to their network.

2. Register Devices

Students and/or school staff register in seconds — no device downloads necessary. This process is only done once, and it works on desktops, laptops, tablets, or mobile devices of any kind.

3. Manage Classroom

After the devices are registered, teachers can instantly begin managing their classroom to ensure students are on task and getting the most out of their technology investments.

An In-Depth Look

Student Device Management

Imagine: Students need access to an education website to take an online exam. What if teachers could block all online activity on students’ devices except for the testing website?


It’s possible with NetRef, which uses simple, one-touch controls to give teachers the power to manage students’ Internet activity. Teachers can allow or block websites, apps, texting, instant messaging, social media, and games at any time. They even can disable Internet access entirely in their classrooms. This helps students focus on collaborative learning, testing and studying without distractions.

Teacher Testimonials

Founder and Head of School Andrew Kutt

“We rarely used computers in my class last year, and it was because of the capacity for misconduct! I never felt like I had peace of mind about allowing students to use them because of some of the sites I knew they were able to visit. Now, with NetRef, I feel like I can use computers again in class!”
