Managing iDevices at home

  1. 1. Safer use of iDevices:* <ul><li>Management and Restriction for iDevices at home: </li></ul><ul><li>Wireless access </li></ul><ul><li>Recommended rules </li></ul><ul><li>Device restrictions </li></ul>* iDevices refers to iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches
  2. 2. Wireless Access: If you have wireless access at home you can connect your devices to it but controlling access at home is very difficult.* NOTE: 3G enabled devices have unfettered access away from home! * we are researching more into this
  3. 3. Managing use at home: Ideally we are all also training how to use devices effectively and building self control for times when no one is watching!
  4. 4. Managing use at home: <ul><li>Parents MUST control iTunes and the “restrictions” passcode for users under 13 years. </li></ul><ul><li>Parents need access to the device when required. </li></ul><ul><li>Only use internet enabled devices in “family” areas. </li></ul>
  5. 5. iDevice restrictions: Some features of iDevices can be turned off or restricted for users. These restrictions need to work alongside of management and training in appropriate use.
  6. 6. Settings>General>Restrictions more detail at blogs.newington.nsw.edu.au/ipads
  7. 7. Select “Enable Restrictions”
  8. 8. This passcode should be for the Parent/Guardian only
  9. 9. Recommended Restrictions U13 See following slide for more. (to be regularly reviewed)
  10. 10. <ul><li>Restricting Safari does not restrict internet access apps. Safari is also often needed for research. </li></ul><ul><li>App purchases need the iTunes password so don’t need to be OFF when a parent/guardian controls this. </li></ul><ul><li>YouTube and FaceTime are great resources but need to be monitored. * </li></ul><ul><li>- Turning “Location Services” OFF stops some apps from working. ^ </li></ul>* to be reviewed over 2012 ^more information on Location Services coming soon Notes on Restrictions?
  11. 11. more information?! This information will be regularly reviewed and updated as necessary. For further information, examples of work, app recommendations, app showcase, etc etc etc . .. visit: blogs.newington.nsw.edu.au/ipads follow: @newingtonict
