Technology Initiatives Backed by Government Funding - Germany
Many schools throughout Germany were far behind in implementing technology into classrooms, but throughout the year great progress was made. The city of Bremen ordered around 100,000 iPads, all managed by Jamf, for each student and teacher to have an iPad for a 1:1 distance learning environment. Thanks to the success students and teachers had with their new iPads and adapting to a distance learning environment, the German government will continue the funding into 2021 to ensure schools throughout the country remain successful.
"2020 wasa big year for digitalization across German schools and we were no exception. We are thrilled to be able to give each student the possibility to work with an iPad, the best learning technology. Using Jamf to ensure the device is managed meant our teachers, students, and parents were able to use them in a productive and safe way," said Oliver Denk, Responsible for MDM, Die Senatorin für Kinder und Bildung - Bremen.
The GIGA School Project - Japan
The Jamf Japan team worked alongside Japanese telecom NTT Docomo and Apple’s Education team to roll out iPad for elementary and junior high school students across more than 100 boards of education. Students in Yokohama, Kumamoto and other cities were able to manage their devices and access their teachers and classes during the pandemic.
