Managing iPads, iPod Touches, and other IOS Devices Throughout a School District
Limited Capacity seats available

One of the most appealing aspects of iPads and iPod Touch devices is the fact that they are easy, intuitive to use and expand teaching and learning possibilities. As schools start using Apple iOS devices in the classroom on a large scale, there are often varying levels of understanding about the management options available to IT administrators.  Mobile Device Management (MDM) is commonly perceived as a comprehensive solution for managing mobile devices, but in reality there are additional steps to consider when managing iOS devices.  With this presentation, we will discuss the options and technologies available to manage Apple iOS devices in the classroom, including a definition of terms, an up to date summary of Apple's management framework, and the place of mobile device management framework, and the place of mobile device management tools such as the Casper Suite from JAMF Software. Next, that kowledge, framework and toolset will be applied to create a practical workflow used to support thousands of iPads in a real world educational environment.
