  • Wireless network district wide: in conjunction with phone systemNetwork Config Utility- 3 network config files: 1 for network settings, 1 for exchange (which was put on webpage for use), 1 for student useSet network configurationBlocks explicit content from AppleDisabled You Tube for studentsFiltering– made a pda network for only mobile devices, made a policy for all of those devices. The ipod does not authenticate (doesn’t log the person; logs the device). No way of tracking by user. If we authenticated, the issues were cumbersome as the time out and have to log in with each use (elementary students didn’t have usernames yet and weren’t fluent).
  • Rules: any app b4 class allowed; any app b4 school is allowedAny app during study hall if C- or above
  • Label- Pulaski School District and a number (some schools do SN)
  • Isip clientAdministrator all in one deviceCisco clientAllow us to use ipod touch as phones in district Can use your itouch and iphone at home off district network: via VPN directory of staff on phone or touchWould replace current Cisco phones with ipads, itouches and iphones– supplement to your phoneIf iphone, app will switch you to provider network seamlesslyPush to talk Meeting placeWithout Cisco phone system, can use a different sip client
