The digital migration in the classroom is helping bring to life a new kind of learning experience, one that empowers students toward more self-directed learning opportunities. More and more, lessons are being delivered through mobile devices and content is gradually shifting to digital - video, online assessments, search tools and context-sensitive hyperlinks are all being used to enhance the learning process. With new technology has come new risks including the theft of devices and the need to ensure that the content accessed is sanctioned.
I recently wrote about some of these challenges on edtech digest. Old School, New School shares our new infographic on just how pervasive this ‘New School’ digital revolution has become and discusses some of the challenges schools face in managing and securing digital devices.
In order to sustain the digital classroom, new technology must be introduced safely and efficiently by administrators. School IT staff must be able to remotely manage and secure all endpoints – regardless of form factor or operating system – from a single console. No spreadsheets, no choosing new tools as new devices are added, like the latest Chromebooks introduction.
With one single tool, IT needs to be able to determine the status of each device, manage typical IT maintenance requirements, and take immediate security actions if required. As a bonus, this consolidated management option can cut down on hundreds of IT hours.
It’s an exciting time to be an educator. With a comprehensive security and management solution, like we offer here at Absolute Software, you can both increase IT efficiency and foster a safe environment for staff and students. Learn more about Absolute’s solutions for K-12 here.
