    Greetings all,

    We are starting down the BYOD road next year with out Year 9-13's and I am looking at how we will manage charging devices and storing devices throughout the day. I was wondering if there are others out there who are further down the road who could offer advice or are willing to have a chat about your set up?

    Cheers Mike :)

    I found this if anyone else is interested? Its a map of the landing at Gallipoli that students can interact with on Minecraft. Here is the link if you are interested...

    Greetings all,

    We have recently installed Apple TV in a few rooms to try it out. I was wondering if anyone here could recommend an app that the teacher can use to control who is using the Apple TV?  We have 3 student ipads and it would be great to be able to flick between them all to see what they were up to and show the rest of the class on the Interactive whiteboard. Any help would be great!

    You could try appShopper. It gives a list of free apps for education and everything else... very handy Laughing

    Hi all,

    I was looking for a folder lock app today and thought I would check here and found this thread. I was hoping that guided access was able to be used on a folder not just an app but from reading above it won't work... Matt I know apple designed the iPad for individual use but people borrow or use other iPads all the time (especially my pre school kids) I wonder if Apple would extend its ability to "lock" apps to folders?
