We purchased a cart of 30 iPads for high school students. Our IT guy was able to disable the cameras and some settings so that students can't change the setup. HOWEVER, one student was able to add his/her passcode which kept us out. We aren't able to lock that down. After a call to Apple, they say it can't be done unless we use 3rd party software for blocking--which they didn't know of any. Anyone come across this or have any suggestions? Thanks! They are working well other than this one…See More

I'm on a snow day too. So far, I have not been able to implement a program at my school. My district, as most in IL, are owed thousands from the state, so they are "pinching" pennies. I am exploring grant opportunities and hope to have something in place next school year. It is great to have time to catch up and research. A lot of people have a lot to offer here on the ning. There are AUP (acceptable use policy) and check out forms under the resources tab at the top of the ning. We will look forward to hearing how about how your program goes. Keep us posted.
