Lab Management Software

Question: What lab management software allows teachers to share their screen and/or take control over student computers?

The IT Guy says:
Teachers can feel out of control when it comes to letting students use computers, especially in a lab setting. The students sometimes seem to know more than the teachers, and it can be difficult as well as frustrating to provide direct instruction in a lab full of computers. Enter lab management software, like NetOp School, LanSchool by Intel, and Macintosh Manager by Apple. These software programs allow teachers to "blank" student screens so they cannot work when it is time to look at and listen to the teacher. They allow teachers to "share" their screen with students to demonstrate a procedure or skill. Some also have other advanced features, like simultaneously restarting or shutting down all the computers in the classroom or lab. More information about these lab management software options is available.
