Lock a student’s device

Library > Teacher U

If a student is using their device inappropriately, you can totally rein that in. Here’s how.

  1. Log into Launch and select Mobile Manager.
  2. Navigate to the group where the device is being used.
  3. Find the device you need to manage and click the gear icon to open a menu.devicedropdownmenu_ipad
  4. Select Lock. This powerful action will log the student out of the device and land them at the lock screen.
  5. Now watch for their head to pop up so you can give them that all-knowing eye. Seize the teachable moment. Whenever you’re ready for them to get back at it, you’ll use the same menu next to their device name to unlock it.
  6. Optionally, you may want to keep everyone in one app for a while with a Mobile Manager group policy. Learn how.
