Schools ICT has developed a solution to help you stay connected during the school closure period. Microsoft has a tool called Teams which can be used for collating learning resources and directing learners. Teams also include collaboration tools such as chat and video calling which can be switched on in preparation for co-operative learning experiences from remote locations.
A full school set-up is a long-term project, but Schools ICT has developed a lighter version that can be quickly deployed to get you up and running. We are calling this Rapid Teams.
Manage all your schools iPads and mobile devices from one place with Schools ICT’s Mobile Device Management Service
The benefit of using a mobile device management solution means that you are in complete control of what resources a student can see and access. Screens can be fully customised to support different learners and display the apps, files and resources you want the student to use and even place them on screen in a position you choose. The settings can be loaded to all devices in one go – no more having to update each individual device or wait for your school technician’s visit before new versions are installed.
School leaders are always under pressure to make decisions, and they make these with the best interests of their students, staff and community as a priority in each one they make. We take a look at how teaching and learning can continue without the use of traditional school buildings and classroom structures.
