A great management tip for school or class sets of iPads, tablets, and iPods is to number each device. Setting the lock screen wallpaper to an image with each device's number will make it easy to identify devices.
"Summer and vacation go together like, well, two of the best things in the world. Parents have time off from work, kids have time off from school, the weather is nice, the sun is shining, and travel beckons. Whether it's a day at a local fun spot, a trip across country, or an adventure half-way around the world, memories will be made. Amazing memories, crazy memories, shared memories. No matter how great a vacation is, however, you can never be there forever, nor can you take everyone you love with you. What you can do is bring the vacation home for you and for them! With your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, not only can you take videos and pictures of those magic travel moments, but you can edit and share them right in iMovie, even right away if you want to. Best of all, for kids (of all ages!), iMovie's trailer templates make it incredibly quick and easy to put together something short, sweet, and fun!"

I was able to use this Teacher ToolKit idea for both groups."

However, it now has an amazing couple of FREE features that you won’t want to miss. You can now back up 1 TERABYTE of photos for no cost. Comparing that to Dropbox (2GB at sign up), Flickr gives you 500 times the amount of photo backup. Obviously, Dropbox is a multi-use app that has become indispensable for many, but for photo backup, Flickr is king. To put it into perspective, you could upload 500 000 photos into your account (assuming an average 2MB per photo). That’s probably more than the large majority of people will ever need to upload."

Teaching is a lot like acting, a high-energy, performance profession that requires a person to act as a role model. But when teachers go through training and professional development, the performance aspect of the job is rarely emphasized or taught.

We’d had enough technology, and now it was time to re-engage as a class. Clearly, the iMacs had become a deterrent to learning rather than a catalyst, so it was time to re-group. Would I recommend the above strategy to middle or high school students?
