Thousands of schools around the world have implemented one-to-one tablet programs for their students. Mobile devices in the classroom have allowed teachers to educate students more effectively by being able to tailor learning styles and monitor each student’s progress to best suit their educational needs. However, adapting schools to new technology can lead to several technical limitations every institution is now facing. Training staff on the latest Apple iPad or Android device, as well as managing apps, files, and updating software can be too much to handle for seasoned IT staff or overworked teachers. Schools are now turning to mobile device management (MDM) solutions, such as Deep Freeze MDM to solve all their security and logistical concerns in order to give students the best learning experience possible.
Technology in the classroom can become an unnecessary distraction for students and teachers if not properly managed. A service like Deep Freeze MDM provides an intuitive cloud-based console for educators to worry less about technical issues by integrating seamlessly with the Apple School Manager, Apple Device Enrollment Program (DEP) and the Volume Purchase Program (VPP) as well as the Android for Work and Samsung SAFE V2+ systems.
Keeping students focused on the task at hand can still be difficult, IT administrators will need the management tools in software like Deep Freeze MDM to set restrictions on unauthorized and adult content, control network access and limit functions across devices, as well as purchase and install apps from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, and enroll devices for new students. With this system, defining strict student and teacher policies will create a safe and productive learning environment free from privacy and security issues that may arise.
