@Eduware_Inc @mamante Good point. Is there a way to disable the camera for schools who do not want it? #iPadChat

@mamante @Eduware_Inc Yes, Camera app can be disabled through Parental Restrictions in Settings. This way you can have camera or not! #iPadChat

@tvallier #iPadChat: Is anyone using Casper for app management? I’m still a bit mystified by it and would like some clear info. Anyone have a link?

@tvallier @Eduware_Inc Looks like refurb units have big savings w/o losing on the warranty. $429 for a first gen unit: http://t.co/hYrTHvI #ipadchat

@Eduware_Inc @eSparkLearning Good point. Where do you stand on new vs. refurbished? #iPadChat

@edmadison Using #iPads to teach K-12, or considering it? Participate in a U. of Oregon survey: http://dld.bz/adqFt #blc11 #ipadchat #ipaded #CT2011

@Eduware_Inc @edmadison Thanks for the link. Is this independent research? What’s the goal of the data? #iPads #blc11 #ipadchat #ipaded #CT2011

@mamante Some schools don’t want student devices w/ cameras so first gen makes more sense in those situations. Otherwise, iPad 2 for sure. #iPadChat

@Eduware_Inc Q2: How do you handle replacing damaged broken units? Do students need insurance? Extended warranties? #iPadChat

@mamante @Eduware_Inc Yes, Camera app can be disabled through Parental Restrictions in Settings. This way you can have camera or not! #iPadChat

@Eduware_Inc @mamante That is fantastic. Is there an easy way for schools to deploy parental restrictions across multiple multiple ipads? #iPadChat

@nrojas0131 @mamante Have you seen/heard of cases where schools use cameras for classwork? Or do most use parental controls? #iPadChat

@tvallier @Eduware_Inc Does apple offer insurance? Or is apple care the only option? Are there any third parties schools are using for this? #ipadchat

@mamante @Eduware_Inc iPhone Configuration Utility be used can set that option and more across multiple devices. #iPadChat

@Eduware_Inc @mamante Can you push configuration changes to devices wirelessly? #iPadChat

@Eduware_Inc @mamante Can you push configuration changes to devices wirelessly? #iPadChat

@nrojas0131 I’m wondering if parents have to pay for broken units, or pay for a deductible or extended warranty? #ipadchat

@eSparkLearning @nrojas0131 Our students use the camera feature to create videos & projects about what they’ve learned over the week #iPadChat

@Eduware_Inc @eSparkLearning Are there any online lesson plans which utilize that camera that you could share? #iPadChat

@mamante @Eduware_Inc Not yet but we will need to see what iOS 5 brings in the fall. #iPadChat

@Eduware_Inc @mamante True, I hope their wireless options do not disappoint! #iPadChat

@Eduware_Inc Q3: What is everyone using for App distribution and management? #iPadchat
