iPads in Secondary School class
we are planning to introduce 15x iPad's into the English classroom and possibly order more iPad's into classes. I was wondering if any other secondary schools use iPad's in the classroom. I've been having a look online and it seems that primary schools are using iPad's or other secondary schools are using iPad's to use apps but can't see how they save progress on a shared iPad or give the teacher work or even do work.
If we go ahead with this we will buy the Lapsafe Sync and Charge trolley along with a mac book pro which will have Apple configurator to install apps but this is the easy part. I've been reading about Apple VPP however they only accept credit card which is going to be a pain as we can only pay via PO.
The teacher wants apps including Evernote, Skitch, Morpho, Explain everything, Pages, GoodReader, iMovie, Tellagami & iMovie. The main issue I can't get my head around this is that students will share the iPads. If they create a movie in iMovie for example or another app where they produce something how do they take it off the iPad and send it to the teacher? Another thing is how would you manage a shared storage option for multiple users where there will be a place where work can be saved off the device for students and somewhere where the teacher can put documents and resources which the students can open? The only thing I had in mind is Dropbox however the problem with this is what if one student deletes everything in the Dropbox folder as he would have the ability to do so if is able to add to that folder... But creating multiple apps for students would be so hard and something we can't manage and have backups for.
Also how do manage the Camera roll on the iPad? who deletes the image and do you have to do them one by one on each device?
Once the device is locked down I know the students will be able to delete and the Profile via settings any way to also Lock the settings section of the iPad?
Just wondering if any secondary schools are using iPad's and have all these covered :)
