If you are using iPads in your school, I would highly recommend you mange them using Apple Configurator. Apple Configurator is a free management tool that is used to help manage multiple iPads.
A few weeks ago, I installed Apple Configurator on a MacBook and now the iPad cart is managed using this program. One of the biggest advantages of using Apple Configurator is that the apps can be purchased and redeemed through the VPP (Volume Purchase Program). This will help manage the amount of money spent on an app and keep track of the licenses.
First, you must check the OS X on the device that will run Apple Configurator. The OS X must be 10.7 or higher. So, I had to upgrade from Snow Leopard, (10.6.8) to Mavericks, (10.9).
