Learning on the iPad: The Apple School Manager is a central component for using the Apple tablet in the classroom. The manufacturer’s free tool supports the configuration and management of the iPads. School Manager also allows to purchase and install iPad apps with discounts for education. In an online workshop, Mac & i explains how to use Apple’s service and link it to an existing system for mobile device management (MDM) in order to manage devices and accounts.
Apple School Manager under control
Of the Master Apple School Manager online workshop is aimed at IT teachers as well as IT managers and administrators at schools and school authorities.
The two-day workshop goes into great detail: the topics range from the basic settings in the Apple School Manager and the link to an MDM server, to managed Apple IDs and the various account roles, to purchasing apps with an education discount. In addition, it is taught how the structure of the respective educational organization can be mapped in the School Manager.
Online workshop on two dates in 2022
Prerequisite for participation in the workshop is admin access to an Apple School Manager. We also recommend an iOS device that can be reset for testing, as this also demonstrates a practical workflow for automatic registration and importing apps. The workshop is held by Andreas Schenk, trainer and consultant at Apfelwerk. He has been helping organizations implement their Apple projects for many years.
