We have several classrooms in our district wrapping up their first year with 1:1 iPads. How are other folks handling the logistics of getting the iPads set up for the new school year? Each classroom set is managed through a single iTunes account. Students do not have their own iTunes accounts.
Specifically, I am thinking about questions like:
- What to do with student files, pictures and other data. Do they lose this work? Do they migrate it off to services like Dropbox or Google Drive?
- Do you take the opportunity to do some spring cleaning & organizing?
- What do you think of the idea of setting up a "master iPad" set up with settings, apps and folders the way you want and then restoring the other iPads from the master iPad's backup file.
Any other thoughts & ideas would be appreciated!
