Specialist Solutions


Cablers have been researching and developing iPad solutions for use in education since the beginning of 2011. Over this period it’s become clear the possibilities and benefits from these devices are endless, giving us a blank canvas to work from.

So whats all the fuss about, why is the iPad beginning to play such an important part in our children’s education? There are endless possibilities available with the huge choice of high quality Apps available, providing teaching and learning tools for all subjects in our school curriculums.

Applications for Numeracy, Literacy, Sciences, Art and Music are plentiful and provide engaging ways of learning and teaching alike. The built in camera brings more possibilities in to play, giving teachers the ability to snapshot pupils work and share instantly with the class for discussion.

Apple provide a number of different ways in which iPads can be configured and managed, making it possible to control settings and restrict certain features and inappropriate content.

There are two models available, one of which involves a physical sync with the device. Managing profiles on these devices in this way provides a way for the school to configure wireless settings, proxy settings and restrictions on content and the ability to install applications. Although these profiles can be removed by the user, the result is also in the loss of internet connectivity and other network resources.

The most manageable solution involves a management server and provide all the benefits of the above method, but also enables these  profiles to be managed wirelessly. With large numbers of users this method simplifies the rollout of profile updates requiring very little physical intervention. This solution also provide a number of other features including private or public email, file storage and media sharing.
