Pine Glen Library & Technology Center » Setting up a cartful or two of iPads

Pine Glen Library & Technology Center » Setting up a cartful or two of iPads | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

It was quite a bit of work to get the iPads ready to go for the students. I made a few mistakes a long the way, but here's the most efficient method that I've found for getting all the iPads up and running in a uniform manner, particularly if you already have a bunch of free apps and apps purchased from the Volume Purchase Program"
