Lightspeed Systems was pleased to have another successful showing at the 52nd Annual California Educational Technology Professionals Association (CETPA) Conference held last week in Monterey, California. The educational technology company has been involved with the organization for many years, including exhibiting at the show, leading sessions and panel discussions, and having several employees serve on the CETPA board. Lightspeed Systems is a California-based company and is honored to work alongside CETPA to not only improve educational technology in their home state, but the rest of the nation as well. By equipping schools with innovative, K12 specific tools, Lightspeed Systems is helping educators create safe, collaborative, and mobile learning environments.

Throughout the week-long conference, Lightspeed Systems hosted several mobile learning focused sessions and discussions. Mobile devices are changing education and Lightspeed Systems is committed to changing the way these devices are managed. Developed specifically for K12, the company's Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution features hierarchical policy settings, education specific tools, and a user-friendly interface allow IT staff to efficiently manage mobile devices and help educators ensure the devices foster positive learning experiences. Mobile Device Management also features application controls, integration with the Apple Volume Purchasing Plan, remote wiping, and centralized inventory, reporting, updates, and installs—making managing the devices as simple as using them.

Lightspeed Systems is dedicated to working with schools to accomplish amazing things. Several districts, including Coast Unified School District, shared their mobile learning stories with the CETPA audience. Coast Unified is using Lightspeed Systems' MDM to manage a 1:1 iPad deployment program. “Mobile Device Management from Lightspeed Systems is easy to understand for both our IT staff and teachers,” shared Henry Danielson, Director of Technology at Coast Unified School District. “The implementation of our 1:1 program and transition to mobile learning has been seamless and MDM has met our specific needs as a school district.”

The theme of the 2012 CETPA Conference was Rethink, Reshape, Redesign—reflecting the methodical and pedagogical changes happening throughout education today. Lightspeed Systems recognizes mobile devices are changing the way teachers teach and students learn. The company is focused on guiding schools through these changes by empowering educators with the tools necessary to transform learning. With the Lightspeed Systems' MDM solution, schools can worry less about the management of the network and devices and focus more on unleashing the learning power they hold.
