Are these apps free apps from the iTunes store or paid apps? If paid, how are you dealing with purchasing multiple copies of the software?

How about integrating with your current IT systems?
Sorry...! Lots of questions..!
I'm still struggling to see the value of slates in the classroom.

Right - apologies for the delay - there are screenshots of the app list here:
Hopefully that'll work...
It's a mixture of apps - some free, some paid for.
We are still looking at proper integration with the rest of the network, but the intranet works fine with the associated resources in MS Office format. We are currently using YouTube for clips, with unlisted links so only we can see them. Will probably sort out something else for this though, for better control and access. For other things, there is the Citrix portal, but it isn't ideal for a lot of tasks - although it works quite well, it's obviously better suited for a device with a proper keyboard and mouse...
They are in addition to the classroom PC's. It's a bit of a beta test, and classes have been taken outside and used the video/photo functions for some things, and made short videos etc etc.. The portability is obviously great for that.
