Douglas Adams
“Everything that’s already in the world when
you’re born is just normal.
Anything that gets invented between then and
before you turn thirty is incredibly exciting and
creative and with any luck you can make a
career out of it.
Anything that gets invented after you’re thirty is
against the natural order of things and the
beginning of the end of civilization as we know
it“
Author - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Trends in ICT
There are three major trends in ICT
today and the iPad fits into each of
them.
1. Cloud Computing
2. Mobile Computing
3. BYOD – Bring Your Own Device
Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School
1. Cloud Computing
Using a
network of
remote
servers
hosted on
the Internet
to store,
manage,
and process
data, rather
than a local
server.

1. Cloud Computing
a. Infrastructure as a Service IaaS
Servers in the Cloud - Many school servers will move
into the cloud in the next 5 years
• Amazon’s Elastic Computing
http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/
b. Platform as a Service PaaS
Operating Systems in the Cloud
• Microsoft Azure
c. Software as a Service SaaS
Programs in the Cloud
• Google Docs – Collaborative Office Apps
• Gmail – Email, Calendar, Contacts

The iPad
The Post PC era?
Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School
Anthony Chivetta
“The need to know the capital of
Florida died when my phone learned
the answer.
Rather, the students of tomorrow need
to be able to think creatively: they will
need to learn on their own, adapt to
new challenges and innovate on-thefly”
High School Student- Missouri

Post PC era
Doesn’t mean the PC is dead. We are
no longer in a one-to-one world but
rather a one-to-many world.
The iPad represents a new category

iPad - Weaknesses
•

Deployment Models

Myles Carrick
In reference to the decision to go oneto-one with iPads
“The school decided that we had won,
even if all we achieved was better
communication with students and
getting them better organised”
Director of IT – Newington College Sydney
Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School
Deployment Models
There are three deployment models based
around app ownership
1. Personal – Student owns the apps
2. Institutional – School owns the apps
3. Layered – Mixture of school and student
owned apps
Excellent Apple Resources for Deployment are
at http://www.apple.com/education/it
In particular “iOS 5 Education Deployment
Guide”

Institutional (Shared)
–
–
–
–
–
–
Best for Primary Levels / Special Ed / Library
Most restrictive
School owned iPads
School iTunes account(s)
School manages the device’s settings and apps
Can deploy apps by using:
• Gifting of Apps

Gets around age restriction (13 years) for iTunes account
*VPP is coming to Australia
http://www.apple.com/education/volume-purchaseprogram/
Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School
Deployment Models
2.
Institutional (Shared) continued
– Using Apple Configurator via USB
•
•
•
•
•
Single master school iTunes account
Can create multiple templates (SOEs)
Supervise mode prevents configuration changes by the student
Integrates with Volume Purchase Program (VPP)
Requires Syncing Trolley or USB hub
OR
– Using Mobile Device Management (MDM*) via Wireless
• Using Casper, Lion Server etc
• Multiple school iTunes accounts, one per device with simple
password
• Students generally have to accept configuration profiles.
• Volume Purchase Program (VPP)
Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School
Deployment Models
3. Layered (Personal and Shared)
– Apple Configurator can be used to “side
load” school apps via USB
– Student configures the iPad as a personal
device
– Student ends up with a set of school owned
apps and personal apps and data
Children under 13 are not legally allowed
to have their own iTunes account
Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School
Deployment Models
Notes
– Under the VPP, always purchase apps in
lots of 20 copies to take advantage of
education pricing eg cheaper to get 20
copies than 11.
– With gift codes and VPP redeem codes,
whoever gets the code owns the app
