iPad Deployment

iPad Deployment.
Get in contact with me if you want to know how we deploy and maintain 75 iPads.

Our chosen list of Apps is certainly not exhaustive, just the best of what we have trialled over the last 12 months on our initial 2 iPads, as well as getting the students to suggest apps too. The apps we installed are:
  • Pages
  • iMovie
  • Extras for iMovie
  • Garageband
  • Chicktionary
  • Wordlands
  • NZ Herald
  • TVNZ
  • ComicBook
  • Documents Free
  • Squaramble
  • Super 7
  • Tic Tac Toe Plus
  • Blanks
  • Dots Free
  • IQ Gym
  • Addicus HD
  • Finger Physics
  • Qwiki
  • Four in a Row
  • Word Monkey
  • Word Search+
  • Google Earth
  • 7 Little Words
  • 3 News
  • Whirly Word
  • GoSkyWatch
  • Jumbo Calculator
  • Math Snacks
  • Pearl Diver HD
  • Pirate Treasure Hunt
  • UnblockMe
  • iBooks
  • IQ Gym
  • Solutions
  • WhatBirdNZ
  • Mancala: FS5
These will now be deployed into classes at the beginning of Term 3 for integration into class programmes. Each of our digital classes will be having 14 and the 2 Academic Enrichment classes will initially share 12. All sets will be made available to other classes, although we will be needing to expand our wireless network. An Airport Base station will travel with the Enrichment set as a temporary solution as the digital classes already have a wireless network available.
Storage and security has been a big concern for us. I will detail this in another post.

  1. Wow Gavin, lots of learning done there huh!
    Love your list of apps too, lots I can try out. I have had some great talks with both Stuart Hale (who runs ieducator) and Matt from Selwyn Ridge Primary (in Tauranga) about the same issues - deployment and set up and agree it is better to learn from other people's trial and errors ;)
    Look forward to hearing more of your exciting news!
