JAMF Software (http://www.jamfsoftware.com), which specializes in Apple device management, has announced a partnership with eSpark (http://esparklearning.com), a provider of differentiated learning through curated, education-focused iPad apps.
The move combines eSpark’s unique learning technology with advanced mobile device management capabilities from JAMF Software’s Casper Suite, allowing schools to automate app distribution based on the individualized learning needs of each and every student, says Dean Hager, CEO, JAMF Software. The Casper Suite and eSpark deliver a 1:1 iPad experience, he adds.
By enrolling iPads with the Casper Suite, expertly curated apps are automatically distributed without teacher or IT interaction to individual students based on assessment data. This allows districts to leverage existing test data to target the area of greatest need for each student.
Students then progress through the interactive content, mastering concepts and creative challenges at their own individual pace. App licenses are easy to manage because apps are automatically installed, revoked, and reused wirelessly according to student needs, preserving IT time, device space, and app budgets, says David Vinca, CEO and founder of eSpark.
