Keeping track of your school’s devices can be a challenge, but there are tools out there to make it easier. Here are some of your options.

FILEWAVE ENDPOINT MANAGEMENT SUITE
(
WWW.FILEWAVE.COM)

JAMF PRO
(
WWW.JAMF.COM)

Since 2002, Jamf has been helping more than 4,000 school IT teams, instructional technologists, administrators, and teachers manage Macs and iPads in the classroom to ensure their Apple programs are a success. With Jamf Pro, users can automate Mac and iPad deployment and simplify ongoing management.

Jamf Pro offers ongoing device management that evolves with the changing needs and expectations of the classroom. Key features include: support for Apple’s Device Enrollment Programs to automatically enroll and configure new devices; integration with Apple School Manager and zero-day support for all new Apple releases; definition of settings using configuration profiles, policies, and custom scripts; management of Apple’s built-in security tools: passcodes, security policies, software restrictions and Lost Mode; and access to Jamf Nation, the Apple IT community of 40,000-plus members.

LIGHTSPEED MOBILE MANAGER
(
WWW.LIGHTSPEEDSYSTEMS.COM)

Mobile Manager is a unique MDM solution made just for schools. It saves schools time and money with multi-OS support, intuitive IUs, integration with Apple and Windows programs, and a school-based hierarchy and policy inheritance.

Mobile Manager is designed with a hierarchy to match a district and inheritance to make policies easy to set across levels. It’s multi-OS, and it has classroom controls for teachers. Features include: ability to control all of your devices remotely with the click of a button; integrate your SIS to automatically create users and groups; manage all of your solutions from a centralized dashboard interface; and more.

TABPILOT MDM FOR SCHOOLS
(
TABPILOT.COM)

TabPilot puts both IT administrators and teachers in control of classroom devices by providing school-specific mobile device management plus classroom management tools. TabPilot supports iOS, Android, and macOS. Apple VPP and DEP are supported at both district level and school level. Teachers can freeze student screens, lock to a specific app or website, and more. TabPilot is highly scalable, from a single school with just a few carts of devices to large districts with many school locations and thousands of devices in a 1:1 program.

TabPilot is designed exclusively for schools, so everything from the intuitive interface to the classroom feature set is designed to meet schools needs, rather than corporate enterprise needs, which can be quite different for mobile device management. For example, schools often have to refresh an entire fleet of devices between school years, so functions for mass-reset help the IT department accomplish this. Schools also have the unique need of sharing administration responsibilities with teachers, who need to make changes at the classroom level. TabPilot empowers them to accomplish this.

WALLMOUNT CHARGING LOCKER
(
WWW.BLACKBOX.COM)

Whether you’re a teacher, IT tech, or administrator, Black Box Wallmount Charging Lockers are engineered to save your floor space and your budget. Ideal for smaller classrooms, offices, and training environments that are short on space, the lockers hold 9 or 12 iPad tablets or 15-inch Chromebook laptops. They also give you the versatility to mount multiple lockers together for more storage options. Adjustable rackmount rails enable you to mount other IT equipment too. Plus, the 100% steel lockers hold up to 150 pounds and are guaranteed for life.

 

Wallmount Charging Lockers are unique because devices and power bricks are accessible from the front, which allows the lockers to be stacked on all sides to form device charging walls. Other lockers need to have access to the front and the back or top, not allowing them to form locker walls. Also, the Wallmount Charging Locker has optional GDS Wireless Charging technology to eliminate device power cords for most tablets used in the classroom. 

Impero Education Pro
(
www.imperosoftware.com/)

Schools use Impero Education Pro for a wide array of administrative IT tasks such as controlling passwords, managing printers, or setting computers to power on or off at certain times. This is saves time for IT departments because they can schedule school-wide installs, patches and updates from one screen instead of having to physically go to each device.Impero Education Pro also provides mobile device monitoring tools to help teachers take full control of their classrooms while allowing students to benefit fully from the use of technology. Teachers can share their screens, send or share files with students, take over or lock students’ computers, create exams, assign tasks, send direct messages to students, or monitor thumbnails of students’ activity in real time to ensure they are on task.The software also monitors students’ online activity on a school’s network and alerts educators if students use keywords that could indicate cyberbullying, sexting, radicalization, self-harm, or a range of other issues.

Impero Education Pro is unique in that it provides seamless integration across multiple platforms. It consolidates a range of powerful classroom, network and device management features enabling schools and colleges to reduce costs and improve both staff and student productivity. Its online safety functionality uses keyword detection technology to help schools safeguard students online and allows deeper monitoring than many other types of monitoring software. Impero Software also partners with non-profit and specialist organizations including Hey Ugly, ikeepsafe, Anad and the Institute of Digital Citizenship in order to develop its keyword libraries and to connect schools with appropriate resources.
