    Just need the Server app which can be purchased onto any Mac running 10.7+

    - Configure Profile Manager
    - Enroll your devices into Profile Manager
    - Push free apps OTA without user end passwords (Paid apps coming soon, apparently)

    This is complete rubbish........

    Profile Manager does NOT work with VPP.......
    Apps STILL require an Apple ID even for free apps.....
    You have to have the SAME Apple ID on EVERY iPad to enable you to accept the App, breaking App licensing rules.

    You do not need a server, you need a proper MDM solution......

    ipads...

    Anyone start printing. I have only HP laser printers. I got HP's app but will try it tomorrow at work.
    I have a list of mostly-free-ish apps my vp gave me. Also I put "iTunes U" on them and picked a few titles about implementing iPads in education for the teaching staff (which includes me): Getting Started with iPad, Elementary Games (Perth Amboy Public Schools), Apps for the Classroom (Arkansas), Classroom Management with iPads (Palm Springs Unified), if you go through the K-12 listing on iTunes U, the state of Arakansas has basic textbooks listed. I also got iBooks and got he "iPad User Guide". I also spent 2 hours with an AppleTV device showing a bunch of teachers the above and setting up email, looking at Podcasts, Star Rover (cool GPS use here), Siri, Merriam Webster (say the work and it looks it up), setting up school email, installing apps (Sudoku) through app store which needed them to set up an iCloud account. I took Facetime off and went through Setting->General->Restrictions for no in app purchases and rating and locked it.

    I got a sync cart and macbookpro to set things up but I'm still in the first stages.

    In the article...
    "software preventing pupils from accessing inappropriate websites"
    I've installed the K-9 broswer app and will remove Safari

    "although they will be allowed to use sites such as Facebook and Twitter at home."

    Facebook is educational? anyway K-9 blocks facebook


    "tracking software to help police locate tablets which are lost or stolen."
    Find iPhone App works but with only 1 unit, still testing it out, unit has to be on though.


    "Parents ... are liable if they are lost or stolen due to negligence ... school has also taken out extra insurance."
    This didn't work out at one district see pdf below, insurance should be mandatory

    Here is a somewhat lengthy pdf on OLPC and why that failed http://www.gse.uci.edu/person/warsch..._bluelines.pdf
    I think the author (Warschauer) is accurate.

    I haven't started printing, but am going to order an Airprint/Chrome Print printer very shortly. I am hoping that will eliminate any issues with printing.

    SR, thanks for the reminder, I just looked over at the website $20 for the app....

    I thought you just needed the free Apple Configurator tool?

    That's what we use. Apple configurator on a standard iMac. Free from the mac app store.
    No over the air support though.
