True but you can buy eclicker for£5.99. The client is free.
Your iPod Touches then become voting systems. This is where the iOs eco system saves schools money.
Quizdom suddenly becomes a one dimensional investment.
iPads and iPod touches are a luxury item as a one off purchase, but Apple's model is very cunning.
The more hardware you buy, the bigger the cost saving with apps. In these new post Labour spend times, the iPad and Touch take on the curious position of being both a cost saver and yet desirable luxury items. Not intending to spark a big debate here - but these are very interesting times.
LOL there is no way ipad/ipod touch etc can be said in the same sentence as "saving money", it costs NOTHING to have a show of hands and much less then ipad tax etc for Prometheans solution in your specific example of voting....

Beyond that it was mainly cosmetic changes - altering the brightness, time before it turns off, adding an email account (I set up a school_ipad account on googlemail, and used the +1, +2, +3 trick to give each iPad an accountable address (oh, and I also have the ipad account on my machine so I can see what was sent / received on those email addresses)), and re-arranging and adding some apps on the docking bar.

Interestingly we had the technician in on Friday to update some things on the school network and laptops we have, and it took him significantly longer to each machine than it takes to sync an iPad.
any teachers evaluate it?
