Sprint And Manage Mobility Announce Joint Offering For K-12 Schools

Stocks in this article: S

Sprint (NYSE: S) and Manage Mobility understand the complexity and challenges K-12 schools and their IT departments face in rolling out mobile learning programs. Many schools do not have the budgets, tools or personnel available to manage all of the intricacies of such programs, from developing processes that ensure students are not going over their data plans, to preloading and securing devices with the right content and software.

In an effort to alleviate the complexities of implementing and managing mobile learning programs for schools, Sprint has collaborated with Manage Mobility, an award-winning leader in logistics and management for wireless programs, to offer a comprehensive cloud-based mLearning technology solution so schools can focus on what is really important to them – educating students.

Wireless Campus Manager™, available from Sprint, is a complete mLearning infrastructure solution that integrates strategic capabilities from best-in-class partners, enabling K-12 schools to easily Power On mobile learning. This complete package is included in Sprint’s new Mobile Learning 3G/4G data plans for education. Schools using laptops and tablets from Sprint can access safe, secure and managed network coverage they need in and out of their schools.

Value, Productivity and Simplicity

With Wireless Campus Manager available from Sprint, K-12 schools can now better manage wireless costs; procure, image, track and support mobile devices; manage break-fix, support the management of acceptable use policies; help provide safe Internet access through CIPA (Children’s Internet Protection Act) compliant software; control and secure devices with Mobile Device Management (MDM); and provide a collaborative learning portal for teachers and students with Learning Management software (LMS), which is key to digital content delivery and assessment.

Report Card Stats 1

  • While the United States spends more than $7 billion a year on textbooks, too many students are using books that are 7-10 years old with outdated material.
  • About a third of Americans – 100 million people – have not adopted broadband at home. Students need home broadband to access digital content and to complete Internet-based homework.
  • Technology-based instruction can reduce the time students take to reach a learning objective by 30-80 percent, according to the U.S. Department of Education and recent studies by the National Training and Simulation Association.
  • Continuous access to a computing device for every student leads to increased academic achievement and financial benefits, especially when technology is properly implemented, according to Project RED.

“Working with Manage Mobility to offer this industry-first, bundled mobile learning solution will bring tremendous value to our K-12 mobile learning customers,” said John Dupree, senior vice president, Sprint business sales. “It simplifies the implementation and management of mobile learning and brings all the services needed to provide an affordable, consistent mobile learning experience to engage their students in learning, collaboration and overall success.”
