education BYOD policy demands a mobile device management software solution

30th April 2015

If your school, like many in the UK, operates a BYOD – Bring Your Own Device – policy, it’s vital that you employ safe and dependable mobile device management software. Without it, educators and administrators run the risk of jeopardizing both the security and integrity of their education network, as well as losing control of what their students can access on the internet.

The trend towards uptake of BYOD has continued to increase year on year as mobile devices become more and more popular in the home environment. With tablet technology continuously improving, and pricing levels making mobile devices more and more accessible to all – against an economic background of dramatic state education budget cuts and reduced spend on classroom technology – the trend in BYOD shows no sign of abating.

While the advantages of BYOD for education are clear, the potential dangers lurking unseen threaten to undermine the policy. Bringing ‘unofficial’ devices to the digital classroom risks introducing unwanted viruses and malware to the education network, with potentially devastating consequences. The addition of unregulated tablet devices also runs the risk of students accessing and sharing inappropriate content – both locally and online – with each other.

Without a suitable mobile device management software tailored for education in place, access to inappropriate content including – but not limited to – pornography, gambling, racism, radicalisation, self-harm and pro-anorexia – can occur unchecked. The same is true of playing online games and accessing social media at the expense of studying and maintaining student attention.

Fortunately, Impero’s highly popular classroom management software, Education Pro, does the job of mobile device management software in the education environment.
