What is Native App Control?
Native App Control is a Classwize feature that lets teachers create Classwize Rules to Block or Allow Windows computer applications, such as Microsoft Word or Calculator. It is an optional feature which needs to be enabled in School Manager before teachers can use it in Classwize.
Native App Control is currently available only for users on Linewize Connect for Windows version 3.6.9 and up.
