Thanks Chris.
For the administrators. Wouldn't it be better to sync to their individual computers.
For the class set I can do what you suggested but wouldn't I give the teacher access to buy apps?

You can set up 1 iTunes sytem for all your iPads. I have a cart of 20 iPads, all synced to one master iTunes account on a MacBook I keep with the cart.


I gave each iPad a unique name so I can easily distinguish between them if need be.


I used the System settings to restrict access to the App store so only I (and my Principal) have the ability to buy apps.

Hi. We have just received a few ipads for our school. To set up the ipads they need to be synced to iTunes. Can I do it all from one computer or does it need to be from different computers?

I believe you can use NYSTL hardware money but not RESO A. Is there a way we can request to be able to use RESO A with the rationale that we can use NYSTL?... and that we can use NYSTL for ebooks and easily use them on iPads for much less money than full laptops?

I was wondering what funds or grants schools have used to get their ipads.
Comment by Darlynn Alfalla on March 10, 2011 at 12:11pm
Can you purchase ipads and itouches with Reso A Funds??

We're looking to connect with other high schools using iTouch and iPads in school. Please respond here if you are interested in sharing!

Teachers from PS8M brought students to the iTouch workshop.

One of  my student is excited about the world country app.  He said "he loves it because he is learning about the different countries and continents".
