Apple in the Classroom

Learn the benefits of Apple Classroom

Classroom is a powerful new iPad app that helps teachers guide learning, share work, and manage student devices. Teachers can launch a specific app, website, or textbook page on any device in the class, or share student work on a TV, monitor, or projector using Apple TV. They can even reset a student's password, see which apps students are working in, and assign a specific shared iPad for the class period. -

Shared iPads

Learn the benefits of shared devices in education

To leverage Apple's new shared iPad model, FileWave has introduced two new capabilities - DEP profiles for setting up shared iPads and defining the number of users, as well as a new Client group for carts. Information, uploaded to Apple School Manager (ASM) from FileWave, can be used to associate classes with carts. By simply associating a cart to class, teacher and student users are automatically associated to a specific carts of devices.
