    What ways can you manage iPads effectively in a school, and I'm talking say 60 iPads and a full management and control over them??

    Meraki might be a good place to start: Meraki Systems Manager

    I was very impressed with the Lightspeed Mobile Manager demo we had last week. Seems very straight forward and simplistic. Drop me a line and we can get a web demo organised for you if you like?

    Plus it also integrates very well with their other offerings should you need to look at VLE or content filtering in the future.

    Looking at Airwatch and Lightspeed at the moment, already looked at mobile iron which is nice but pricey.

    Life would be a lot more simple if the features we wanted to use did not evolve putting devices into supervised mode.

    We're only starting down this route but so far I've found Apple Configurator to be an excellent start - with a Charge/sync trolley. Perhaps using Meraki in addition if required.

    There are things that Apple Configurator could be better at but for free its not bad
