About guided access on your ipad!

I'm linking up today with Mrs McClain over at Buzzing with Mrs McClain for the "You Oughta Know" blog hop.

45 really awesome bloggers have joined together to bring you this awesome blog hop chocka block FULL of really great ideas that you really should know about.

As you saw earlier in my post I'm going to share all about guided access on your iPad!

I am super lucky to have access to 5 (plus my own) iPads and Apple Tv in my class room this year. My ten year olds LOVE being able to use the iPads to help them with their learning.

However, they are ten.  And we all know that ten year olds can be a leeeeettle bit sneaky!  Also the class of 5 year olds next door have accidentally shown us their learning by putting their iPad's on our Apple tv over the wifi.

Enter guided access!!  Totally awesome BTW's!!

It really is that easy!  I love it because it means I can give my personal iPad to my students and not worry about them getting into non school related apps - like facebook!

There are 45!!! Amazing blog posts below, make sure you hop on over to them all!!
