infrastructure is crucial - mobile devices rely on solid robust infrastructure

eSafety curriculum

printing? possible but no need... digitise!!

Handy hints
passcode lock - set at 5 minutes
lock image - when screen locks show photo of owner
accessibility settings - lock in app purchases!
international keyboard
screen protectors

iPads not meant to be/not designed to be shared or moved around from class to class, they are a domestic device, if you create something it only sits on that 1 device - risk is easy deletion e.g. kids make video, next group deletes it and it's gone!

home filtering -

administrative meetings done collaboratively on line so staff meetings are free for professional learning

Yammer - microblogging, like Twitter but inhouse (not on iPad, on laptop/PC), great for collaborating and sharing

Scootle - digistore for iPad
