IPads in school

Discussion in 'Computing and ICT' started by vickyledwards1973, Jul 6, 2012.

  1. We have recently purchased some iPads in our special school after numerous recommendations - I am now busy looking up suitable apps to put on them but am left with the dilemma of licensing laws. On the PCs you purchase the licenses for the number you wish to use but I can find no mention of this for apps does anyone know the rules for iPads, downloads and licenses or where I can look?
    Many thanks

    I've got to ask: Why did you purchase them before finding this out?
    Also, take a look at http://www.mrlovegrove.net/2012/05/16/irollout-of-ipads/

    It's all good fun... you'll enjoy endlessly "gifting" your ipads from 1 gift certificate account to add the apps...
     
  5. That's a very good question.
    Who did you buy the iPads from? If they're an IT Specialist then the best thing to do is ask them. If they're not an IT Specialist then contact one and say you're thinking of getting some iPads from them but want to know about licensing and the apps you can use for education.
    Apple also offer some good support so you could pop down to your nearest Apple store and chat with them or if you look on their website you should find a support number that you can call and they'll be only to glad to help you.
