Set Up Options:
Child Profile: this streamlined homescreen will help students focus on what you’d like them to use.
Books and Apps are easily found, Videos will (likely) remain empty and unsearchable, and Characters organizes books by genre.
To set it up, go to Settings, Parental Controls, Household Profiles, and you can add a Child Profile. You can enter a name such as “Student” and select a representative birth date. You can easily Add Content from your Teacher homescreen and I would disable the camera as well. (Everything still works from your account on the device, which should be password protected). (The “hand-curated kid-browser” option is very non-educational.)
To access either account, tap user icon in upper right corner to see the choices.
Parental Controls: simply setting Parental Controls is another option to limit student access to the features you select. You’ll then need to use your password to get to internet, etc. Here’s an article that explains the two choices a bit more. In app purchasing should not be a concern either way.
Whispercast: The library and computer lab are set up to use this Amazon option, and you could be added as a user as well. Advantages are that multiple app/book purchases can be made at a single time, and easily distributed to all your devices once they are registered with this system.
