    If you want to have multiple users on the same device - and be able to use and maintain their work independently, I'd seriously look at the Chromebook over the iPad. 

    The iPad is by design built to have one user per device. Which is great for Apple's shareholders, but problematic in a school environment, especially if you're concerned about equity, or even trying to manage them.

    Hi Sarah,

    I'm happy to send you a POND invite.

    I'm a teacher at Seatoun School in Wellington, but I'm also seconded to the N4L two days a week - so can be a point of contact for any Pond or N4L related questions.

    You'll need an ESAA account to login to Pond. If you are using e-ASTTle at your school you should have one of these. Otherwise, to set up your own account, follow the instructions at TKI.

    If you email me the name of your school to: tim.kong@n4l.co.nz - I will sort you out an invite.
