How to Use Restrictions as Parental Controls on an iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

How to Use Restrictions as Parental Controls on an iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch | IT integration | Scoop.it

"If you plan on giving an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to a child, take a moment to set up some very basic parental controls on the device by using the Restrictions feature of iOS. It only takes a minute to configure, and this will prevent the access of inappropriate content, avoid mature themed media, prevent in-app purchases and incidental charges, disable the ability to download and install new apps, plus prevent the removal of apps that have already been installed on the device."

With Tech Tools, How Should Teachers Tackle Multitasking In Class?

With Tech Tools, How Should Teachers Tackle Multitasking In Class? | IT integration | Scoop.it

While some teachers want to remove all digital distractions from the classroom, others say Generation M’s biggest challenges — like giving schoolwork undivided attention — require learninga new set of behaviors that need to be taught and modeled. Besides, tasks like online research, communicating with teachers and other students, and sharing ideas and divvying up work online are mandatory parts of doing school work. So the question for educators is: what to do about it?
