  20. 20. iPad management in classroom Wireless Network: ◦iPads apps require direct access to the web (no login). Will your iPads connect through a separate wireless network that allows them to pass through directly? ◦Will you create a separate policy that identifies iPads on your existing wireless network and treats them differently? ◦Will they be subject to existing web filtering when browsing or will you need to consider adding a web filter to your network? Group Device Management:◦Where will devices be stored and charged?◦Will you use a mobile cart?◦Do you have a clearly defined procedure for distributing and collecting the iPads?◦Do you have a clearly defined Acceptable Use Policy? Has it been communicated to students and parents?◦How will you deal with issues such as damage or theft?◦Do you have a set procedure for how and when the iPads will be synchronized and updated?◦Are your IT staff trained on the technology and care of mobile devices such as iPads? Individual Device management ◦How will you identify each iPad? Some options include using a sticker, screen wallpaper image or engraving. ◦Will you use earbuds? Earbuds can be very helpful if they are listening to media in class. If you plan on using them you’ll probably want each student to have their own pair rather than share them. Application Purchase and Management ◦How will apps be purchased and distributed? Will you purchase, manage and synchronize to one central account or different accounts? ◦Will you use multiple accounts for individual teachers, classrooms and/or departments? Remember that you can synchronize to multiple accounts on any individual computer. ◦Will teachers be given permission to install apps on their iPads and/or student iPads? ◦Who will manage purchases with Apple’s volume purchasing plan? The VPP grants around a 50% discount on volume app purchases and is legally required if you plan on synchronizing and distributing apps to sets of iPads.
