Windows 10 IoT & Frame

Windows 10's kiosk mode, combined with Dizzon's Frame Platform, offers a streamlined and secure solution for organizations to deliver applications to students and frontline workers. Kiosk Mode restricts users to a single application such as Frame App or a native browser, minimizing distractions and potential security risks, and simplifying management. In this blog post, you will learn how to set up Windows 10 IoT in kiosk mode and explore the user experience of Frame running in kiosk mode.

Frame enables seamless access to virtual applications and desktops, allowing individuals to interact with their apps from any device via a browser. This convenience simplifies management for schools and ensures students have the necessary resources to complete their work. The setup fosters a focused learning environment by simplifying technology management and enhancing application accessibility. Running a modern browser or Frame App in kiosk mode enhances the user and admin experience. Combined with the flexibility to deliver all your Windows desktops and applications, this approach becomes highly valuable for many education customers.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted education around the globe. Educators everywhere—at every level—had to hastily implement remote learning curricula for “learning-from-home” and try to continue maintaining student engagement with the changed environment. The current school year has been marked by a mix of classroom and remote learning, with sometimes jarring transitions from one to the other in response to outbreaks.

Former West Virginia Governor Bob Wise has likened COVID-19 to other natural disasters, saying, “There are three stages to any natural disaster. There’s triage, there’s transition to what is next, and if you’re very fortunate and deliberate, then transformation…We either take this very disrupted, very tumultuous year to plan and build a system that we want or we stumble along, always transitioning but rarely improving.”

Over the last decade, technology has been completely transforming education and the learning experience, from K-12 to higher ed. Nationwide, school systems have worked toward digitally transforming the learning experience with initiatives for 1:1 student-to-computer coverage. Prior to the current global pandemic, 1:1 efforts prioritized access to computing and technology within the school. But now, access to computing from home is front-and-center, since it has practically become the only way to connect to teachers and learning when school buildings are closed.
