The Lightspeed Systems Mobile Learning Essentials solution combines the three software elements schools need for successful mobile learning: safety/filtering, mobile management, and a collaborative learning platform.

Across the world, schools are at different phases in their mobile learning programs, from planning to pilots to full roll-outs. But one thing is clear: mobile learning is an essential component to how students learn already, and increasingly will be learning in the future. In fact, GoKnow, an educational consulting firm, predicts 100% of students will be using mobile devices in the classroom by 2016 . But Lightspeed Systems sees it happening even sooner than that. Schools are figuring out how to implement these technologies today.

To meet the many needs schools have as they work to implement mobile learning, Lightspeed Systems has created a unique offering that combines software solutions with professional services.

The Lightspeed Systems Mobile Learning Essentials solution combines the three software elements schools need for successful mobile learning: safety/filtering, mobile management, and a collaborative learning platform.

The addition of Device Configuration Services to the solution allows schools to more easily roll-out devices and ensure consistent and best-practice deployments. With the service, devices are delivered to schools already unpacked, asset tagged, engraved with the school name, and configured with the MDM, content filtering, learning platform, and other preferred apps and policies the school chooses.

The Lightspeed Systems solution to help schools with mobile learning efforts includes:
•Safety/filtering with Lightspeed Systems Rockets
•Mobile device management with Mobile Manager
•Collaborative learning platform in My Big Campus
•Device configuration services

“Schools turn to us as a trusted partner to help with their technology plans,” shares Brian Thomas, President of Lightspeed Systems. “Now they are coming to us seeking help with mobile learning: from advice on what to do and how to do it, to the actual solutions that make it feasible and manageable in schools. That is what we are delivering with this solution.”

An additional benefit is the recognized expertise of Darryl LaGace, who spearheaded a successful 1:1 program at San Diego Unified School District. Now the Executive Vice President of Global Business Development Lightspeed Systems, LaGace’s insight is available not only to guide product development at the company but also to help schools who turn to Lightspeed Systems for help with their mobile learning programs.

The Lightspeed Systems solution combines safety, mobility, and collaboration with professional services that can help more schools engage their students with a mobile learning program.
