4 Philosophy Challenge for IT – Business users need standardization – Kids need variety For engagement For exposure; for stimulation – Kids will invent the future – Kids need to be exposed to as much as possible IT as an enabler; not a stumbling block – C&I gets to choose what works best for them 4

8 Why Apple? Instructional need for spontaneous access to information and flexibility in the classroom. Apple is the standard for creative design. Affordable classroom solution (iPod Touch) 8

9 Timeline March 2009 – Apple infrastructure installed – Tech Apps labs received iMacs September 2009 – MacBooks, iMacs, and iPod Touches in every library August 2010 – iPads added to the libraries – Classroom Based Technology project launched – Mixture of different technology including iPods Touches August 2011 – iPad added to Classroom Based Technology Project – Now shifting to more iPads and less iPod Touches 9

10 iPod/iPad in the Classroom Small Group Learning Collaborative Projects Tutorials Back Channeling Polling Digital Story Telling Interviews and Video Recording 10

11 Benefits Instant ON! Camera and Video Education Apps Internet Access Price Point 11

12 Challenges Purchasing Apps Syncing iOS Updates iTunes Updates Consumer-centric Architecture 12

13 Device Management in iOS 4 13 Teacher Teacher laptop with iTunes iPad Teacher manages devices in the classroom Devices sync to iTunes on teacher laptop for software updates and apps Each device must be synced individually

14 Device Management in iOS 5 14 iPad Teacher manages devices in the classroom Devices sync to iTunes cloud automatically except for iOS updates which teacher has to initiate. Multiple devices can sync to iTunes concurrently Apple Content iTunes Cloud (Purchased apps, Music, iOS updates) Teacher Content Teacher Laptop DropBox

15 Purchasing Apps iTunes Gift Card or Credit card – Purchases are tied to Teacher used on the iTunes account on Teacher laptop – Must pay Sales Tax Volume Purchase Program – Apps are purchased centrally through a district account – App codes distributed to teachers Either via or through a 3 rd party solution like Casper – Teachers download apps using App codes – Apps belong to the account that Teacher uses to redeem App codes 15

16 Volume Purchase Program Allows Education Institutions to Purchase Multiple Copies of an App tax free and often discounted Program Manager – Sets up VPP and creates program facilitator accounts Program Facilitator – purchases Apps from education store Volume Voucher – Program facilitator redeems voucher into account and purchases the App App Code – When an App is purchased, the program facilitator is given an App code to redeem 16

17 Volume Purchase Program 17 One central Program Manager + one Program Facilitator at each campus or department

18 Volume Purchase Program Allows Education Institutions to Purchase Multiple Copies of an App tax free and often discounted Program Manager – Sets up VPP and creates program facilitator accounts Program Facilitator – purchases Apps from education store Volume Voucher – Program facilitator redeems voucher into account and purchases the App App Code – When an App is purchased, the program facilitator is given an App code to redeem 18

19 Volume Purchase Program Once you purchase an App through VPP how do you get it to the device? – A redemption link (URL) can be ed to the user – Mobile Device Management Solution The iTunes account that redeems App code will own the App 19

20 Mobile Device Management Casper (JAMF) Inventory – Device information – Installed Apps – Create smart groups Configuration – Wireless – Restrict access of built-in services – If management is removed, deployed Apps are removed App Distribution – iOS 4 – Apps can be installed through Self-Service – iOS 5 – Apps can be pushed to devices 20

21 App Implementation One Spring Branch ISD iTunes account in order to maintain ownership of Apps One central Program Manager Program Facilitator for each campus or department (50+) Program Facilitator uses Casper to distribute App codes to devices End user (teacher) redeems under a single SBISD iTunes account 21

22 App Implementation Challenges – In order to maintain ownership of Apps, the App codes must be redeem under an Spring Branch ISD iTunes Account – If App code is redeem under a personal account, there is no way to regain ownership – Program facilitators will need to learn minor system administration in Casper – For mass distribution, smart groups are not easily created – 50+ accounts to look for information (App codes) – When App is pushed, defaults to iTunes account that is currently signed in (iOS5) – When App code is scoped to device through Self Service, teacher must remember to use Spring Branch ISD iTunes Account (iOS4 or iOS5) 22

23 App Implementation Exploring easier methods – Gift cards and individual teacher iTunes accounts Exploring more cost effective methods – Casper is a large expense in pursuit of inexpensive Apps! – Under VPP Apps must be purchased for each device, at a discounted price – Under normal App store purchase, can have an App on up to 10 devices 23

24 TCEA Sessions by SBISD Mobile Devices in the Classroom – Wednesday, 10:00 AM in 17A Supporting the 21st Century Classroom – Thursday, 2:00 PM in 17A 24
