Safe and secure bring-your-own-device
A typical independent school student will own a smartphone, computer and/or a tablet which they would enthusiastically bring to school if they could use them effectively in lessons.
Once you’ve moved your learning resources to the cloud, the challenge of supporting multiple device platforms is relatively simple as they will run in any modern browser.
One-to-one (1:1) schemes where a school chooses a single device per student (such as an iPad) and then asks parents to pay a few pounds each term to fund it, are popular alternatives to full bring-your-own-device (BYOD) at the preparatory stage.
Regardless of how you achieve one-to-one device access for students, it’s important to make sure you take sensible precautions to keep your students safe. Considerations include better mobile device management, filtering and monitoring solutions. Ensuring we meet the needs of your school, our experts are on hand to provide advice.
