There are a few pitfalls to consider when deploying and managing Apple iPads in schools. In a detailed, two-day online workshop, Mac & i explains what needs to be taken into account when preparing the infrastructure, how the Apple School Manager is used correctly and how the tablets are managed in everyday school life.
From Apple School Manager to device management
The “iPads in Schools” workshop is aimed at teachers as well as IT managers and administrators at schools and school authorities. In addition to the basic tasks and the right preparation, the agenda also includes concrete implementation with the Apple School Manager. This includes creating managed Apple IDs, assigning devices for automatic device registration and purchasing app licenses.
The workshop deals with typical configuration steps when setting up and managing the iPads with the MDM solution “Jamf School”, which is widely used in schools; access is provided for the practical part. The focus is also on the management of the iPads, such as finding lost devices, lifecycle management, software updates and, last but not least, control over the managed Apple IDs.
