In many school systems, digital content and mobile devices are taking the place of textbooks and traditional methods are being replaced by new teaching strategies and curriculum models. Primary and secondary schools worldwide are using VMware Secure Digital Backpack—powered by VMware® Workspace™ ONE™ — to give students and teachers secure anytime, anywhere access to digital resources through a single workspace on their devices of choice.
The Secure Digital Backpack combines desktop and application virtualization and enterprise mobility management with centralized identity management and policy enforcement to improve teaching and learning experiences.
One of the really powerful pieces of Buffalo Public Schools (BPS) desktop is having that BPS desktop available for students not only in school but at home so parents, family members, and caregivers can see exactly what the students have access to in school.

Ensure devices accessing networks feature appropriate identity and management capabilities. Deliver apps and data to user- and school-owned devices with appropriate levels of IT management.
