Today's students are more tech-savvy than ever before. There's a bigger demand on educators to craft lessons that truly engage and inspire them.

Educators look to technology to help them achieve this, but it's important to be self-reliant with classroom devices. The limited IT resource available to schools must be used wisely, so out-of-the-box solutions are a great option for teachers who want to implement technology in their classrooms.

We want to empower teachers to be as comfortable using technology as their students are, and equip them with the knowledge, skills and tools they need to enhance learning.

What is Intune for Education?

Intune helps schools to set up and manage classroom devices easily. It's a new cloud-based app and device management service, ideal for use in shared learning environments.

Over 90% of schools use shared devices
50% of teachers serve as their own tech support in their classrooms
75% of teachers feel that their students are more tech-savvy than they are

This means that educators face more demands than ever before, and teachers need to be confident when setting up and managing new devices. This reduces the need for IT support, which is often a limited and expensive resource for schools.

Intune is designed for schools who want to put devices in their classrooms without creating lots of admin work to properly set up and maintain them. Intune makes it easy for teachers to set up Windows devices in minutes and manage shared devices.

Simple Windows 10 management

  • You can set up default policies for all devices and users in a class or school. Teachers can do this in minutes with the express setup feature.
  • You'll be able to assign settings to students and apply them; to hardware, apps, browsers, the start menu and much more. Better yet, this personalised experience is tailored to the student so they'll have the same settings when they sign in on any Windows 10 device.

Easily deploy applications

  • Intune makes it easy to assign and deploy education apps from the Windows Store. Apps are then available to students after custom settings have been applied.
  • Intune is designed for easy integration with Microsoft education software and services, including other Microsoft Cloud services and Office 365 Education.

Integrate with School Data Sync

School Data Sync combined with Intune enables you to automatically create groups based on school register data. Teachers can apply settings and apps to individual students based on their progress. Or settings can be applied at a higher class or school level.

School Data Sync automatically reflects any changes to class lists in your group. For example, students who have registered for a new photography class will see apps relevant to that group on their devices.
