Jamf and MATTER Partner on Innovation Pod, Providing Access to iPads and
Digital Curriculum for Haitian Students

MINNEAPOLIS, June 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jamf, the standard in Apple
management, today announced it is partnering with MATTER, a nonprofit
dedicated to expanding access to health around the world, to develop an
Innovation Pod that will provide access to a variety of technologies,
including iPads and digital curriculum – all within a completely customized
shipping container. The pod will be unveiled at the Sounds Like Summer Concert
Series in Phoenix Park in Eau Claire, Wis. More details can be found below.


What: This summer, more than 150 children living in poverty will soon have the
opportunity to learn about and engage with technology – many for the first
time in their lives.

Thanks to a first-of-its-kind partnership between Jamf and MATTER, students
attending Hope School in Cite Soleil, Haiti will receive a completely
customized shipping container designed as a 21^st century classroom.

The Innovation Pod, outfitted with solar power, is a hub for learning and
using technology. Each of the pod’s five collaborative workspaces include an
interactive display powered by Apple TV. While in the unit, every student and
teacher can access an iPad. Students at Hope School will use a variety of
apps, such as Swift Playground, Duolingo and Khan Academy, to gain access to a
diversified library of content to complement every student’s interests and
learning style. 

Who: Jamf Global Education Evangelist Dave Saltmarsh will be onsite in Phoenix
Park to lead tours of the pod and share details of the initiative.

When: The unveiling will take place on Thursday, June 14, 2018 at 3:00 p.m.
CT. The pod will be open to the public during the Sounds Like Summer Concert
Series on Thursday nights through July 12.
