1:1 and device theft is becoming a key issue for schools, especially as we surge ahead with more and more devices in schools.
Unfortunately, the issue of security and theft will likely become more of a reality for many of our colleagues. Certainly Principals and ICT Leaders who want to protect the investment (of either the school and/or parents) this is an important area.
This whitepaper which I have just received might be useful to many school leaders and principals. It is published by Securly (note spelling), which is a company that deals with managing devices through the cloud, particularly Chromebooks and Google Apps.
The report findings show that (according to this US school data) to justify the investment of insurance that you’d have to lose 1 in 15 Chromebooks… this seems like quite a lot to me based on these numbers!
The report also looks at anti-theft technology and whether this is a good option also. If you know you need to consider the issue of 1: and device theft, then this interesting read is certainly food for thought…
