    Have 17 pads ready for next week as a trial for my high school 

    pE dept exciting times. Wi fi installed in the teaching room last week and I set up the pads. Thought about VPP but in end did sep I tunes accounts 

    could set up 11 devices to one account and as app using are all bar two or ree free apps it isn't Chopin to damage anyone much. 

    Dont have mac configuration so manual time consuming updates ahead and I'm sure many issues as I go into the dark with this in a techno phobe school living in 18th century here goes....

    i hope to be getting 17 Ipads for use next year and a wifi for my area only in my secondary school. Im getting this from my budget and PTFA help(wifi port access bundle). I have enrolled today with the apple Volume purchase thingy but wondered how poeple have managed their pads.

    I woont have the ict support a lot of others have as its a stand alone project

    i want to have my pads with the apps we will use in PE & health across yrs 9-13 and the pads will be multi users across the school.

    if you have done this kind of thing let me know - has it been easy what can be done


  • Gary Sullivan 04 Dec 2012 1:58pm () in So where are schools at with Volume Purchasing?

    hi christine ive registered with the programme today and will be geting 17 ipads for a senior school multi users in PE across pe & health.

    im bit daunted by the process but want to get the apps i want and configure to 17 pads. I hope this can be done via wi fi as lont have a synch hub or anything like that.


    can it be done do you know?

    Interesting alternate for those not so tech savvy perhaps and could just use some apps but obviously word processing documents writing etc would b limited by size of screen and being so small ttheft what do people think iPod or plough on with iPad and adapt and learn 

    google docs sufficient to do work store and send for assessment in a senior school?

    No it's as we don't have macs to arrange the configuration so the it support people would arrange organise and set up for us and as they say time is mmoney thanks anyway Andy at moment don't know how much this support cost be garybe gary

    our IT people want to sell us this

    for just 17 iPads seems a little pointless 

    what would you recommend ..anyone ?

    WhichWhich would be best for I pad use?

  • Gary Sullivan 20 Nov 2012 8:16pm () in iPad trial

    Good luck I am hoping to trial for my learning area of PE next year If get wifi for my room then it will be a learning curve as the school is not well versed got ICT nor expertise.
