Survey Says . . .

Thank you for taking the time to complete the iPad Survey. We will survey the students on Wednesday. I look forward to sharing the results with you in the near future.

iPad Tip of the Week

Set Restriction for Apps and Movies

While we are monitoring all the apps that our students install on their iPads, I thought I should let you know that you have the ability to further restrict the apps that your child installs.

All apps in the Apple Apps Store have a rating. The ratings range from 4+ to 17+. You can set up parameters that will keep your child from installing apps that have a 17+ rating.


Here are the steps to set up this restriction:
1. Select the Settings button

2. Select Restrictions

3. Set a Passcode

4. Enable Restrictions

5. Under Allowed Content, select Apps

6. Select 4+, 9+, 12+ (17+ should turn red to indicate it is not allowed.)


Now when your child goes to the Apple App Store and tries to purchase an app that has a 17+ rating, the passcode you set will be required before the app can be installed. Some apps that you wouldn't expect, like the Google Chrome browser, come with a 17+ rating. When this occurs, you will get to be the judge of whether or not your child installs the app.
