With Mac labs being a major presence on university campuses, many IT admins rely on imaging to ensure computers do not fall prey to viruses and costly data breaches, and to provide students with the education resources they need to be successful. The problem is imaging machines is a tedious and manual process, requiring lots of IT time.
In this white paper, we examine a better way to manage a Mac lab and explain how to:
• Leverage Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP) to automatically configure and enroll Mac devices into management
• Make apps and resources readily available for students to use, regardless which computer they choose
• Ensure students only have access to the resources relevant to them by binding machines to your school’s directory services system
Imaging technology has dramatically aff ected the experience of K-12 teaching and classroom
dynamics. From a time when the primary ways to relay information were verbal, via a
blackboard or overhead projector, to the current array of computers, tablets, fl at screens and
projectors – deciding what to select can be complicated. Today there is a lot of focus on fl at
panels and projectors. However the big dilemma isn’t which technology to select, but how to
support the right visual environments that help teachers teach and students learn. Whether
the pedagogical style is sage on a stage, guide by the side, fl ipped classrooms, display-based or
constructivist, getting everyone on the same page and keeping focus are key components in
supporting student comprehension.
