Milton Keynes, 30 June 2014: AirWatch® by VMware, the leading enterprise mobility management (EMM) provider, announces a completely redesigned interface and enhanced functionality for AirWatch® Teacher Tools™, an application that empowers educators to guide the learning experience effectively and improve classroom management.
As part of AirWatch for Education, AirWatch Teacher Tools enables educational institutions to extend the real-time management capabilities from IT administrators to teachers. AirWatch completely redesigned the user interface based on customer feedback for a more intuitive classroom management experience. New features for Teacher Tools include simpler student registration, the option to create and dismiss classes, and the ability to facilitate communication between students and educators during instruction.
“Traditional teaching methods are significantly changing,” said Preston Winn, director of business development for education, AirWatch by VMware. “AirWatch Teacher Tools is a powerful resource that enables educators to integrate technology in the classroom and enhance how they interact with students and the curriculum.”
Additional Teacher Tools capabilities include All Eyes Up Front, a feature that removes distractions by locking devices during class instruction. Single Application Mode locks devices for a student, small group or an entire class into an application selected by the instructor for a specified amount of time. The Clear Passcode function enables teachers to instantly clear and reset a forgotten passcode without looking up the device serial number.
