Kajeet® Launches School Guard™, the First Free Online Tool that Allows Bring-Your-Own-Device Institutions to Manage Internet Access in the Classroom on Student-Owned Smartphones, Tablets and Laptops


The only wireless platform for kids is the sole provider of this patented technology, allowing schools to apply state-, district-, grade- or glassroom- specific Internet access policies to mobile devices owned by students during school hours

Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) June 14, 2012: Kajeet®, the preeminent wireless service platform for kids and those who love them, is pleased to announce the launch of School Guard™, the newest addition to its suite of free, online tools developed to empower children both inside and outside of the classroom.

Developed to support the growing number of Bring-Your-Own-Device programs launched by educational institutions nationwide, kajeet’s School Guard™ allows a school to set Internet usage policies during classroom hours. Each policy is customizable and flexible, based on the needs and/or constraints of the institution itself. Parents of students with kajeet mobile devices may then apply the school’s web access policy to their kid’s smartphone, tablet or laptop, simply by opting to participate in School Guard™ within their kajeet account.

“At kajeet, it’s our mission to provide safe, secure and affordable technology for kids, both inside and outside of the classroom. And with the increasing number of Bring-Your-Own-Device initiatives across the United States, schools are finding that it is more important than ever that kids are able to use their mobile devices at school for a more interactive, rewarding learning experience. We feel strongly that our new School Guard™ technology makes this possible, for both students and their teachers,” said Daniel Neal, CEO and Founder of kajeet.

Schools wishing to set an Internet access policy through kajeet’s School Guard™ tool can do so easily — and at no cost. Policy rules can be established as broadly or as narrowly as desired, from the state level to that of a specific classroom. Parents who would like to apply Bring-Your-Own-Device policies to their kids’ mobile devices will need to be a current kajeet customer or purchase one of the many affordable Android™ smartphones or tablets available online at http://www.kajeet.com.

Kajeet makes staying connected at home or in school safe, secure and affordable. The only wireless service platform that provides Internet-filtered Android™ devices, wallets for multi-payer services, kid-friendly content and GPS technology, kajeet enables communication between kids, parents and educators in a safe setting.
