18 Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School There are three deployment models based around app ownership 1.Personal – Student owns the apps 2.Institutional – School owns the apps 3.Layered – Mixture of school and student owned apps Excellent Apple Resources for Deployment are at http://www.apple.com/education/ithttp://www.apple.com/education/it In particular iOS 5 Education Deployment Guide Deployment Models

20 Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School 1.Personal (Similar to BYOD approach) – Best model for secondary students in 1:1 program – Least restrictive model – Similar to typical consumer experience – iPad could be personal or school owned – Student manages the devices settings, content and apps wirelessly – Make configuration as easy as possible. Can use a Capture Portal and/or Mobile Device Management (MDM) to help student configure the device and redeem apps – Student use a personal or school supplied iTunes account. – Can use iCloud for backup and Find my iPad Children under 13 are not legally allowed to have their own iTunes account Deployment Models

21 Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School 2.Institutional (Shared) – Best for Primary Levels / Special Ed / Library – Most restrictive – School owned iPads – School iTunes account(s) – School manages the devices settings and apps – Can deploy apps by using: Gifting of Apps Volume Purchase Program (VPP*) Gets around age restriction (13 years) for iTunes account *VPP is coming to Australia http://www.apple.com/education/volume-purchase- program/ Deployment Models
