  •  
    "Lucky for you, there's a printable PDF available here and embedded below that enumerates the various ways someone should use the iPad. It is a pretty general acceptable use policy for iPads and seems (to me at least) that it'd be perfect for a K-12 classroom. "

MediaShift . Teaching Innovation Is About More Than iPads in the Classroom | PBS - 2 views

  •  
    Learning environments of the future are in incubation. And therein lies the challenge: Learning environments that don't exist can't be analyzed. Moving into the unknown requires a pioneering spirit. Helen Keller reminds us that is the truth of not only our age, but of all ages: "Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing."

Apple Configurator is likely of the same variety as what Apple uses in its own stores to reset its showroom devices, but now it's available for organizations and schools to make updating and resetting devices effortless. This should break down a few major barriers that kept organizations from widely adopting the devices before.
