iOS deployment for education

Wednesday 28th June 2017

10am - 2.45pm • DoubleTree Hilton Nottingham Gateway, Nuthall Rd, Nottingham NG8 6AZ

Share:

We’re putting the spotlight on the best ways to deploy iOS devices in education, including new iOS 10 features, Apple School Manager, Classroom 2.0 app and Shared iPad. This iOS Deployment event is ideal for anyone who’s looking to find out more about simplifying the setup process of devices and how you can utilise the latest features of iOS10 – if you’re an educator or technician we’d love to see you there on the day. We’ll also be laying on lunch for all attendees and parking is free at the venue.

We'll be covering...

Classroom 2.0 app hands-on demo
With Classroom, you can launch everyone’s apps at the same time, then track what students are looking at on their devices. The app also allows the creation of ad hoc classrooms and share files to devices easily.
Apple School Manager
One central place for admins to create multiple Apple IDs, build courses, and access everything you need to deploy iPad in your school - all from the web browser on your Mac or PC.
MDM and Zero Touch Deployment
How do you make your iPad deployment as simple as possible for staff and students?
Shared iPad
When a 1:1 student-to-iPad ratio isn’t possible, Shared iPad comes to the rescue. It lets students enjoy the benefits of having their own iPad in whatever classroom they’re in. They simply log in to any iPad, and their content is ready to go.
