Investing in a 1:1 student device model for your school district comes with two important decisions.
1. Device type
The first is which type of device to go 1:1 with – Chromebook, iPad, Surface Pro, Mac or a combination of these devices. This decision varies based on budget, student population, learning goals and educational philosophies.
2. Complementary technology
Device selection is only the first step in a successful 1:1 program. You have to decide how students and teachers will interact with those devices to produce positive educational outcomes. How will the devices maximize class time, collaboration and learning? How will teachers ensure that students remain on task and distraction-free while using devices? It’s not easy in classes with 20-some students and 20-some devices.
Device management and classroom operations technology like ClassHub allows teachers to worry less about devices and focus on what’s important: educating students. Most education professionals have a basic understanding of device management technology, but what sets ClassHub apart is what it does for teachers.
The ClassHub Class Manager allows teachers to remotely manage, supervise and administer all of the devices in their classroom. ClassHub offers teachers simple, task-based actions such as screen-sharing, content pushing, device locking, alert sending and more. Simply put: Devices are more efficient, more connected and more manageable with ClassHub.
Mixed-device 1:1 programs
It’s common for school districts going 1:1 to deploy more than one device type based on grade level or class subject matter. ClassHub is ideal for these mixed-device 1:1 environments because it works with all the most common classroom technology:
- Chrome OS
- Mac OS
That totals 97% of classroom devices deployed today. Cross-platform compatibility ensures that schools no longer need to deploy multiple device-management solutions if they’re using multiple device types.
We created ClassHub to make device management simple for teachers and administrators in your school district, and that’s exactly what it does. to talk about device management and classroom operations in your 1:1 school or district.
