Mobile Guardian now offers enhanced Classroom Management Tools for mobile devices, with a strong focus on Chromebook management.
[REIGATE, UNITED KINGDOM, February 19]: Mobile Guardian, a leading mobile device management (MDM) platform in education, today announced details of the latest update to their cloud-based, MDM solution for K-12 schools. The update includes Classroom Management Tools with enhanced Chromebook management features, Android EMM, and a parental control product, Mobile Guardian for Home.
Mobile Guardian’s Classroom Management Tools empower teachers to eliminate online distractions in their classroom. Features like instant actions, web filtering and event history keep students engaged and on track. Adding to this, the Classroom Management Tools boast a suite of Chromebook-specific features in a nod to the device’s dominance in U.S classrooms.
“Mobile Guardian continues to listen to districts, schools and teachers and provide effective solutions for the school of the future. Our platform now caters for over ¾’s of all mobile devices in schools globally.” – Patrick Lawson, CEO.
Chromebook Management Features a hit with Teachers
With Live Screen Views teachers can oversee, in real-time exactly what content students are accessing on their Chromebooks during class. If a student is browsing something they shouldn’t be, teachers can dismiss that browser tab from the student’s Chromebook using Tab Control.
“Live Screen Views and Tab Control have proved a big hit with teachers and make the Mobile Guardian offering even more compelling for schools. Not only does the platform support iPads, Chromebooks and Android tablets, but offers off-site, web-filtering and now in-class management of devices as well.” – Robyn Hobson, Head of Marketing.
The update includes Android Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) which offers schools additional Android management features. In beta, the parental control tool, Mobile Guardian for Home is in response to demand for a solution that enables parents to effectively manage school-owned devices once they leave campus.
