Apple iOS 9.3 Update Improves Device Management for Schools

Screen Shot 2016-01-16 at 5.44.50 PMThis week Apple® made a major announcement about their upcoming update to their mobile operating system, called iOS 9.3.

My family has been loyal Apple® fans since my husband and I first saw one in a technology lab in the 80’s. So we always take great interest in all the announcements and updates that are released by Apple®.  Yet this update includes a particular upgrade or new feature that we thought we should bring to your attention.

apple.com picture 2

 

The features are currently in beta, and will be available and free for current Apple device users upon it’s release. Teachers, administrators or schools who are interested in participating in the beta can contact Apple at educationpreview@apple.com.

The Apple website this exciting and bold statement regarding these changes.

Screen Shot 2016-01-16 at 5.56.17 PM
click on the image above to go to Apple’s announcement page (scroll down the bottom of this page for more information on these features.)

Apple goes on to state:

Technology can reshape education. And iPad, with its powerful features and apps, opens up new, more engaging ways of learning. With the iOS 9.3 beta, you’ll find a preview of new features that will make it even easier for schools to put devices where they’ll have the greatest impact — in the hands of students.

A recent article by Edsurge, provided a more comprehensive breakdown of the new features that will be included with this latest update.


For Students and Teachers

Easier to share iPads with “intelligent caching”

First up, Apple has introduced “intelligent caching,” a feature that the company says was added in response to the large number of iPad carts and necessary iPad sharing they recognize exists in schools around the world. With this feature, students who share iPads regularly can now log-on and reach the same screen that they last left when they stopped using the iPad—the same apps, the same settings and whatever content they downloaded onto the device.

Additionally, students now have the ability to enter a simple four-digit pin that logs them into their device and their iCloud account, right from the lock screen. (That particular feature will sound familiar to any iPhone user.) Or, for younger students, there is now a Photo ID feature where teachers can assign photo log-ins to students.

Classroom App

A second feature is the new Classroom App—which allows teachers more specific and remote control over student iPads and laptops.

In the app, teachers can launch and lock specific apps, websites or textbook pages on every iPad in their class. Additionally, Classroom offers teachers the ability to view any student’s screen as they are working. Additionally, teachers can project student screens to any Apple TV with AirPlay.

And for those students who forget their password? Teachers can now use Classroom to reset their password directly from their iPad.

For Administrators

New way to create and manage Apple IDs

After hearing from school administrators who wanted the ability to create Apple IDs on behalf of the student, Apple’s third feature is the answer to that—“Managed Apple IDs.” Administrators will now have features to easily reset passwords, audit accounts, create IDs in bulk, tailor privacy options and create customized roles for everyone in a district.

Apple School Manager

Connected to the aforementioned feature is the debut of Apple School Manager, a central place for administrators to conduct Apple iPad deployment from web browsers on any Mac or PC. In the Apple School Manager, can manage IDs all from one central place—including that ability to create IDs in bulk that was mentioned above.

But wait, there’s more. Thanks to integration with student information systems (SIS), schools can pull SIS data directly to create Apple IDs for students. 

Apple has also added a feature that allows for an ID to be “graduated,” meaning that students can take their work with them after they leave a school. According to Apple reps, students have full control of the account and will get to take their Apple ID with them, as well as all associated content and data.

We feel this is an exciting new update, bringing power back  into the hands of the classroom teacher.  If you join the beta, we would love to hear what you think and will do a following article sharing your thoughts on these new features.

Don’t forget that Apple is accepting beta testers of these new features, for more information please contact: educationpreview@apple.com

From the Vault: Bill Gets His First Puppy

TheVaultFrom the Vault:  Back on  Bill Evans – CEO and Founder of Evan-Moor Educational Publishers.  We are excited to pull this from the Vault and share it once again with all of you.


Bill and Hope in the Denver Airport. Bill discovered that an 8-week old puppy makes it easier to get through airport security than a diplomatic passport.
Bill and Hope in the Denver Airport. Bill discovered that an 8-week old puppy makes it easier to get through airport security than a diplomatic passport.

Two thousand twelve had been a difficult year for me. And it was been a wonderful year. At the beginning of that year my wife and I lost both of our dogs. We lost Elsa, our golden retriever, to cancer, and very suddenly we lost Jesse to crippling dysplasia. This was the first time in our 30 years of marriage that Marilyn and I had been without canine companionship. We have always had 2 or 3 dogs. Always!

We had always adopted dogs from various shelters or taken dogs that our friends and family members could no longer keep. This time, we wanted the puppy experience. We didn’t really know what the puppy experience was, but we were pretty sure it included cute, cuddly unconditional love. It did include that, but it also included many other experiences.

General Advice:
1. Have lots of paper towels available and be prepared to replace all wall-to-wall carpeting after one year.
2. Men should be prepared to put on their underwear immediately upon leaving the shower. Jockey shorts are preferred. Evidently puppies do not readily differentiate between dog toys and not-dog toys.
3. Have an adult dog present at all times. They understand puppies and can help immeasurably. If you do not have an adult dog, be prepared for biting and chewing when the puppy is not being cute and adorable.
4. Have lots of toys available, especially if you don’t have an adult dog present at all times.
5. You should switch from the traditional glass-stemmed martini class to a Sippy-cup for your evening cocktail when the puppy learns to race across the living room floor and unexpectedly leap into your waiting lap. This phase lasts for about 6 weeks, though this varies by breed.
6. Crate training is very important. That’s where you have the puppy sleep in a wire cage next to your bed. It is very helpful with potty training. It also provides a safe place for the puppy to be when you have run out of paper towels or you can’t find where her toys are or you don’t have an adult dog present at all times and you just need a time-out.
7. Initially we believed that Hope could not reach the dinner table. This impression was corrected when I heard my brother-in-law scream, “The little fuzz-ball has my pork chop!” Never, ever assume that the puppy can’t reach things on the coffee table, dinner table or kitchen counter.

All that being said – I highly recommend the whole experience.
