My iPad 2 Deployment Strategy


It has been about four weeks since receiving my class set of iPad 2 devices & Bretford Power Sync cart and I still feel like I am in the midst of completing my deployment strategy for the units.  Students were introduced to the iPads about one week after receiving them and finally last week, we have started using them on a daily basis.  Although I have researched iPads in education for quite ...

neu.Annotate Crosses Finish Line Ahead of the Pack


My main focus of my TLLP project was to use the iPad as a digital notebook on a daily basis through the use of one of the many PDF Annotation apps available in the App Store.  Since I have three math courses throughout the day, the annotation apps were limited to those which allow exporting the marked-up PDF file to a cloud service such as Dropbox.  The ability to save to a cloud would also be nec...

iPhone Configuration Utility to the Rescue!


In my last post, I discussed how the iPads are now on the secured school WiFi network with the SSID & password saved in each device allowing us to skip the regular Guest Network login.  Excellent.  After the school computer tech typed in the password for the network into each of 30 iPads, we were ready to go!  Unfortunately, as I was re-organizing apps in iTunes, I realized that any modificati...

WiFi Password Stored, But For How Long?


After the mishap today with a crashing PDF-Notes 2.0.0 app on all 30 iPads, I immediately thought that I should do some app maintenance over the next few days.  You know, clean up the springboard, delete unwanted apps, add a few new ones, create folders, and so forth.  All I would need to do is setup one iPad with the newly organized springboard, create a backup of that iPad, and then restore the ...

PDF-Notes 2.0.0 for iPad: The Best Annotation App… Or is it?


Now that my WiFi issues have been solved using a secure SSID with a password permanently stored in all iPads from our class set, it was on to experimenting with pdf-notes.  After stumbling upon this free app in the iTunes App Store, I watched an advertisement on YouTube which was more than impressive.  A nice bookshelf setup with the ability to create categories for each of your classes throughout...
