Outcomes for

ICT teams

The tech scene in Canada has boomed in recent years. In particular, the EdTech industry is now recognized as one of the fasted growing sectors in the country, boasting an annual value of over 1 billion dollars. As technology becomes a key part of Canada’s economy, school boards are focusing on digital innovation to ensure that students, from grade 1 through to 12, are well-equipped to succeed in the online world – now and in the future.

So as the tech landscape continues to evolve, ‘deeper learning’ becomes a core goal and tech grants for education become increasingly available, school boards continue to invest in new technology to shape the future of schools across Canada. And that means more resources for you to monitor and manage.

Textbooks are being substituted by applications, electronic exams are replacing traditional paper predecessors, and the procurement of mobile devices is on the rise – and so the support demands on ICT teams inevitably grow. Often required to be in several places at once, you’ll spend the day racing across district school sites, diagnosing and fixing problems for staff and students alike.

With an ever-expanding network and myriad resources and devices to manage, how can Impero help to streamline your daily tasks?

Impero Education Pro

Born inside the classroom, Impero Education Pro was developed in direct response to the challenges faced in the modern learning environment. From monitoring device activity, managing the status and performance of equipment and concerns over internet safety, to ensuring network efficiency and endpoint security, Education Pro’s network administration toolkit has been developed in response to customer feedback and needs. Deploying an MSI and launching command prompts, at the click of a button, ensures installations and updates are distributed across groups of machines or the whole network, while inventory management helps you keep track of IT assets, and power management centralizes the control of energy usage to maintain efficiency and track savings.

Impero Education Pro, our network management software for education, has been carefully designed to save time while reducing workloads for Canadian district IT teams. By automating several administrational and time-consuming processes, you can reinvest your time into more value adding tasks.

Education Pro’s network management software feature is supported by a suite of classroom control tools and a comprehensive internet safety feature, available as standard with the Education pro package.

Mobile technology has changed how Canadian school boards choose to invest in technology. As school boards strive to make technology an integral part of the learning experience, students are being handed out tablet devices, from iPads to Chromebooks, by their schools. And cellphones, previously banned in many schools, are set to become a common fixture in Canadian classrooms. This means that ICT teams will be looking for new solutions to help manage the array of mobile device set to infiltrate schools across the country.

Designed to work in conjunction with Education Pro, Impero EdLink simplifies the configuration and management of student-owned and school-owned mobile devices. Compatible with Android, iOS and Chrome OS, EdLink enables school ICT teams to control devices and apply rules based on location, in order to support BYOD and 1:1 programmes. Mobile devices can be controlled by managing access to content and enabling/disabling settings, by time and/or age group, and via bulk controlling device settings, such as enforcing safe search or forcing single application mode. Impero EdLink is designed to save IT teams masses of time by enabling application installations or updates to be pushed out to all devices, from a centralized interface. And with granular reports depicting device usage and online activity, ICT teams can simplify mobile device management and help keep students safe.

Impero Insight

Powered by an industry-leading BI engine, Impero Insight enables schools and school boards to view Impero data via a comprehensive, visual dashboard. This data can be reviewed, compared or contrasted to help identify trends, such as safeguarding issues, across individual schools or a whole district. With granular permissions, and the ability to tailor dashboards for different staff members, using secure authenticated Impero Insight ensures that data is secure and the right staff members have access to the right information.

Using Impero Insight, schools can support good decision-making and support a best practice approach by reviewing data on a school, classroom or student basis. This ensures that policies, such as those related to internet safety and student welfare, are being followed and any areas which require improvement can be identified and addressed quickly.
