Essence Academy: A lesson in tech success

In the wake of a global pandemic, many schools are reevaluating their approach to education and seek solutions that can be adaptive and versatile when it comes to new learning environments. Essence Academy, a vocational school for design students — from cosmetology to product design — has found success in fusing technology and education from day one.

With Jamf School, Essence has moved from 25 classes and 12 devices per class to 48 classes and 800 fully managed iPads with ease. Not only is the IT staff and faculty happy with the change, but the user experience for students has drastically improved.

And when it was time for the Academy to move to remote learning, they did so at an astonishing speed.

“On March 9, when Italian ministry of education announced that classes needed to transfer from in-person to a fully remote delivery, we had a meeting with our staff to discuss this process,” said Daniele Gregorio, IT Manager at Essence. “By Wednesday, March 11, we were instructing lessons online.”

After finding their stride with Apple and Jamf School, Essence Academy has been able to provide a great education, sprinkled with entertainment and fun. By streamlining the management of their devices, the Academy now has time to focus on learning and supporting the educational success of their students.
