Student Technology Analytics: Get Better Insights, Better Classroom Performance 

A new IDC whitepaper, sponsored by Absolute and released today, explores how educators can ensure the security and efficacy of desktop and mobile devices used by students and staff in K–12 schools, while also reducing IT administration and management demands and staying in compliance with data security regulations.

In the whitepaper, Student Technology Analytics: How K–12 Leaders Make the Case for Better Technology in the Classroom, IDC analyst Tom Mianelli shares insights gained from in-depth interviews with leaders in top K-12 schools on how student technology analytics has been transformative in driving better performance and securing funding for the latest technology, including:

  • Trends in device deployments in K12, from the lab to the cart to the classroom, with comparative tables on learning outcomes
  • How to ensure the security and efficacy of devices deployed to students and staff
  • How to reduce IT administration and management demands for deployed devices
  • How to ensure compliance with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA)
  • Next-generation solutions to technology and safety pain points

Self-Healing Endpoint Security: Visibility & Analytics

Absolute’s self-healing endpoint security for education can provide the visibility, analytics, and control that school administrators need to protect and manage a range of devices while providing the insight needed for increased data security, improved learning outcomes, and fiscal responsibility.

K-12 schools across the country are demonstrating the potential of technology to support individualized learning and skill development for an interconnected world. Unfortunately, closing the digital divide across school districts and maintaining vast fleets of devices comes with its own challenges. With funding opportunities on the decline, schools are increasingly challenged to prove that technology has had a meaningful impact on student outcomes -- and that device use falls within Internet safety guidelines.
