Creating the Perfect Mac Lab in K-12 Education

Creating the Perfect Mac Lab in K-12 Education

Published by: Research Desk Released: Jan 16, 2020

Today’s students are accustomed to leveraging technology as part of their education. For in-class and at-home learning, many are leveraging 1-to-1 iPad programs. For many more, a computer lab is made available to offer access to educational materials.

In order to set students up for educational and professional success, K-12 schools need to equip students with secure technology and a customized experience when they sit down at any computer in the lab.

By adding a management solution such as Jamf Pro to the school’s technical stack, IT can leverage automated mobile device management (MDM) enrollment the first time a user logs into a Mac. The process is simple and secure:

1. A user is invited to enroll in the automated MDM enrollment.
2. During the enrollment, Jamf Connect is downloaded and installed from the MDM server.
3. Users are taken directly to the Jamf Connect login window, as opposed to creating their own username and password.
