the first to respond to the changing online safety and EdTech landscape
Impero has partnered with a range of internationally-recognized charities and organizations, including the IWF and SafeBAE (a charity co-founded by sexual assault survivors who appeared in the NETFLIX documentary Audrie & Daisy) to ensure that we’re the first to respond to the changing online safety and EdTech landscape. Using new technology and expert advice, Impero’s solutions are trusted by schools across Australia to enhance learning and safeguard students.
Impero Education Pro provides Australian schools with a consolidated suite of network management, classroom control and online safety tools, designed to help harness technology to transform teaching and learning across their schools.
One-click classroom control and instruction tools, combined with real-time monitoring and keyword detection, empower teachers to use technology confidently for teaching. A flexible assessment tools feature, including a feature-rich exam module, enables educators to track student learning across their classes. The ability for ICT teams to remotely manage and monitor the status of a school or district’s network and IT assets – from software licensing and inventory management, to computer usage monitoring and remotely deploying an MSI or command prompt – reduces disruptive downtime and improves efficiency and security.
We know that one safeguarding incident is one too many. Impero Education Pro’s comprehensive internet safety feature, developed in response to best practice guidelines, ensures preventative measures are in place to deal with a range of safeguarding risks – from adult content, bullying and trolling and grooming to race and religious hatred and more – proactively. Real-time monitoring, keyword detection libraries and an advanced incident log helps education establishments to respond to risk before it escalates, while access to screenshots and video recordings provides the context of captured activity. This enables Australian schools to handle risk quickly and appropriately.
What about mobile device management? Compatible with Android, iOS and Chrome OS, Impero EdLink is designed to be used alongside Impero Education Pro to enable Australian schools to support BYOD and 1:1 programs. ICT teams are afforded an array of tools to control student-owned and school-owned mobile devices by managing access to content and enabling/disabling settings, as per the school or district’s requirements and internet safety policies. This centralized approach to MDM serves to keep students protected from the myriad risks of working online when using mobile devices.
The general management of mobile devices is also simplified; school ICT teams can control device settings by pushing out actions in bulk, such as installations and updates, or enforcing safe search or forcing single application mode. With granular reporting, intelligent SSID, GPS and iBeacon technologies, Impero EdLink is designed to help education establishments support successful mobile device integration and realize the benefits of mobile learning.
Impero Insight transforms a school’s Impero data into stunning, graphical reports that can be viewed, compared or contrasted on any device type. Powered by Microsoft’s industry-leading BI engine, and an addition to Impero Education Pro, Impero Insight is an advanced, cloud-based, reporting and analytics module. It automatically pulls data from one or multiple servers into pre-defined, rich-visual dashboards, enabling staff to view data from both individual schools and multi-campus sites. Schools can then view, compare and contrast data to help inform decision-making, related to online safety or pastoral care for example. By identifying online safety trends, across one school or several, Australian schools are empowered to make the most informed responses, including addressing such issues with the students directly.
What’s more, dedicated tailored dashboards can be set up for relevant stakeholders, such as those in pastoral care roles. With secure authenticated access permissions, education establishments can ensure that the right people have visibility of the right information relevant to their role.
