Changing teaching and learning with an MDM?
Like many others, I used to always see an MDM as just a way to manage iPads, but I had my eyes opened recently to the power of using the right MDM to enhance teaching and learning. Like many others, I had seen and briefly used the Jamf apps that come as part of Jamf School. But after a session with Mat Pullen and some time tinkering and exploring, my mind was instantly changed.
Jamf Teacher, Student and Parent app have so many incredible features to aid workflow, scaffold learning and give more control in the classroom and beyond. This is the perfect tool to use alongside Apple Classroom to give you full overview and focus the learning.
There are some key tips I love:
1: using the lessons in Jamf Teacher to eliminate distractions amd focus the learning. Direct pupils to the apps they need and web links you want them to use.
2: using applock to increase focus, improve workflow and eliminate distractions. This is perfect in so many settings, but superb for SEND and EYFS to increase learning time.
3: using groups in Jamf Student to create ways to allow students to access the apps and documents they need easily when they need them.
4: when you create classes in Jamf Teacher it will automatically replicate them in Apple Classroom.
So many more great features which make deployment easy, but more importantly improve teaching and learning!
