Apple School Manager
The new Apple School Manager is a simple, web-based portal that has everything admins need to deploy iPad and Mac in schools. Automatically create Managed Apple IDs for all students and staff, configure device enrolment settings, and easily buy and distribute apps, books and learning materials. And you can log in from a web browser on any Mac or PC. Create an account for your institution to get started, or sign in with your existing Apple Deployment Programme account to transfer your accounts, devices and content.
Shared iPad is an iOS feature for schools that share devices and still want to provide personalised experiences. Before class begins, teachers can assign any student any shared iPad. Students know which devices to use because their pictures are on the Lock screens. Students can access their personal content using a password or easy-to-remember four-digit PIN. And because data is locally stored on the devices, after they log in, their homework, apps and assignments are exactly as they left them. So teachers and technology managers won’t lose time backing up or wiping data between classes.
Buy in volume and distribute wirelessly
When you purchase apps for iPad and Mac through Apple School Manager, your education volume discount is applied automatically. And as soon as you make a purchase, it’s simple to use your MDM to push apps and books to the classes, teachers and students who need them.
Classroom is a powerful iPad app that helps teachers guide learning, share work and manage student devices. Teachers can launch a specific app, website or textbook page on any device in the class, or share student work on a TV, monitor or projector using Apple TV. They can even reset a student’s password, see which apps students are working in and assign a specific shared iPad for the class period. The Classroom app is easy to set up on a teacher’s iPad with the help of MDM.
