Mobile device management for schools
As schools continue to implement digital learning into classrooms, there is always the risk of how to manage the devices. When introducing technology, schools need to ensure that they can monitor, manage and secure pupils mobile devices. For teachers to be able to focus on teaching and not on monitoring pupils’ devices, there is a type of security software called mobile device management (MDM).
Using mobile device management software supports schools with bring your own device (BYOD) and digital 1:1 schemes. Enabling any challenges with inappropriate websites, apps and programmes that shouldn’t be used at school. The software can be applied to both android and apple devices, so schools can invest in iPads and MacBook’s or Chromebooks and tablets. The idea behind the mobile device management software is to support internet safety. We recently posted on internet safety in schools, click below to find out more.
The capability of the software includes programme blocking and safeguarding. Also, some software’s include device tracking, which is useful when pupils are travelling across school with their devices.
The benefits of using mobile device management for schools are fantastic, as it takes a lot of pressure of the teachers. The automated system makes it easier to ensure students learn safely, stay focused, and remain productively engaged with technology.
