If you’re considering an MDM for your school, Jamf School is our recommendation

By Apple, Education, Latest News No Comments

Jamf School assists in providing the best Apple Learning Experience

 

Many of the schools we support use fleets of Apple devices in the classroom. When getting started with their devices schools often use programs like Apple School ManagerApple Classroom and Apple Schoolwork. Apple School Manager is a web-based platform to help manage your school’s Apple devices. When paired with a mobile device management (MDM) solution, essential tasks like enrolling devices quickly or pushing apps and books in bulk to students’ Apple devices — without needing our services or the IT person to manually configure each and every device — are executed efficiently and effectively.

Mobile Device Management (MDM)

Jamf School is an MDM solution for education, tailor-made for teachers. The Jamf School Teacher app seamlessly integrates with Apple School Manager and works as a companion to Apple’s Classroom app. The extended functionality Jamf School Teacher provides, such as messaging between teacher and students, ensures teachers that their students are focused on learning and engagement rather than games or social media.

With the help of the Jamf School apps, teachers can prepare lessons and distribute content directly to the student via the Jamf School Student app. Teachers and students communicate using the in-app messaging tool; If the student leaves the classroom, explores the school’s library, goes on a field trip or is instructed via remote learning, the teacher can still manage their device.

At home, parents can manage their children’s devices with the Jamf School Parent app by restricting or allowing games, social media and apps at their discretion.

Jamf School empowers teachers and parents with the ability to provide the technology students need to engage, collaborate and succeed in all learning environments.
