St. Rita's Catholic School in Dallas recently began using the SMART classroom suite, a classroom management system that lets teachers create, and distribute lessons tailored to an individual student's skill level with the click of a mouse.

The program also gives the teacher immediate feedback on how the students are doing with the material.

"It saves me a lot of time, because I used to have to run around to each computer. And of course, I'm on one side of the room, and there's a child with a problem on the other side of the room," said St. Rita's teacher Bridget Kennedy.
 
The SMART Classroom Suite can also block students from surfing the Internet, and allows teachers to quickly get them back up to speed if they get behind in a lesson.
