I learned that the ipod touch and ipads must be syned to the teacher's computer to receive updates, and requires the teachers iTunes password tos tart the process. I also learned how to take a screenshot, which is done by pressing the sleep button and the home button simultaneously.
To keep the devices safe, they will need to stay locked up in a cabinet or a specified shelter which should require a key to unlock. The key will be kept inside my desk which also needs a key. Nothing's getting stolen here today.
