Exploring the use of iPads and mobile devices in education.
There are plenty of resources for teachers that discuss the use of iPads in the classroom but not many for the persons who's job it is to get them setup and in the hands of the teachers and students. This article documents the steps I took as a tech to set them up. I am not an author so don't expect award winning writing, I am only trying to share with others what I would have loved to have known before starting this process.
I hope to revise this even more with my next roll out.

Thanks for sharing Mark! I had a question about step five. Did you say that you did some wireless syncing? I didn't know that was possible. But it seems you combined wired syncing (from the cart) and wireless syncing. When is wired syncing most appropriate and when can you use wireless syncing? Also, I know you used a cart, but did you ever consider using a 49 iPad USB hub for the initial sync? I hear it's pretty effective.
