I have no idea how to go about paying for the other 9 the each set, aside from contacting the creator of the App directly and asking if you can buy some "licences" from them, wether that would work or not though who knows! Until Apple fix the issue with better software/mangement there's only so much we can try to do about it!

    Plus, if I have to take what I've spent so far on the Apps and then pay for that again 27 times over, well I shudder to think of the cost - it would make the iPads far more expensive than they are worth imo!
    Arthur did post the link to this above, there's a page there from an app developer that does explain it all quite clearly:
    https://support.assistiveware.com/in...=kb.page&id=50


    It's still a shoddy system though and really unclear so schools will inevitably be inadvertently breaking the rules.

    Hi Pete- this is vital information. If you had one chioce with one child-ipad or windows netbook, for use as education tool not as recreation gadget- waht would you decide? Also, have you had any of these ipads broken and had to pay for repairs and how would you cover these costs in your budgets? regards chris

    If it was a choice of one of the other I would definately go for a windows netbook, on the grounds that it can run all the software you already have, is far cheaper, easier to network and if it is for a pupil with SEN you can tailor Windows much better for that purpose (larger icons. various colour schemes, maginfying glass, on-screen keyboard, audio control, and so on). Easier to network fully, can install printers... the advantages of s netboo are massive when looked at one-on-one

    As for repairs, I've not had any broken yet, if any are damaged then I suspect that at least for the time being, it would not get replaced unless the cost was minimal - that would be up to he Head though, at the moment she has final say on what happens with the school's spending; her attitude is very much "respect what you have, or go without it" and that goes for staff as well as the kids!

    Pete about the Apps the best thing to do is to gift them so that you have proof of paying for the (app developer also gets paid then). Speak to your local Apple Education Specialist and they should have briefed by Apple what to do.
