    Apologies if this has been asked before, 

    We are looking to buy a further 48 Chromebook's at the end of this year but really don't want to spend a huge chunk of money on a storage unit, so are thinking about alternatives.

    What are people doing to store and charge their Chromebook's each night? Would love to hear some interesting ideas :)

    Hi Lavinia

    I think we should get together in the next couple of weeks and see if we can help each other out, what do you think?

    The Post grad course at Mind lab sounds amazing, I went to the open afternoon last week and felt very inspired.  A couple of teachers from here are going to do the course next year and are certainly looking forward to the challenge.  I would have been signed up too, but am taking next year off to look after my wee bub who is due in Feb :)

    Drop me an email about catching up - vickip@konini.school.nz

    Thanks Innes for such a detailed reply, I will certainly be trying these options.

    Lavinia - we are using them to help our Junior Students with their learning steps, using the learning progressions for children to scan the code to see what they need to do next in reading, with writing and numeracy next on the agenda :)

    Thanks again

    I was wondering what tool people are using to create QR codes for audio files.  We were recording the audio on Vocaroo and then creating the QR code, but this is only valid for 6 months.  We have just re recorded all our audio files and uploaded to Google Drive, and then copied the link into QRStuff.com, but there has got to be an easier way!  Any suggestions welcomed :)

    Change permissions to either public or anyone with the link.  Just check students understand what this could mean re cybersafety!

    I have been using TTS's Mobile Device Management this year to manage my 32 iPad's but it is costly.  Next year we are doubling to 64 iPad's so I am looking at free options.  Could people please advise me which they prefer - Meraki or Configurator??

    Also, if you are in charge of managing, how much time do you spend doing so per iPad per term??

    We are in Glen Eden and got 32 ipads this year that we manage via the TTS programme MDM. It does cost money as opposed to the free versions, but would be happy to talk to you about it if you are interested.
