    Hello from E. Tn

    Just took delivery of 30 iPads with a mobile cart to be used in the High School where I work. Looking for info on mass management in an education setting.

    Disable things like app store and stuff to keep kids from screwing things up.

    I've been keeping an eye on this guy for a while. Lots of good ideas an insights to using iPads for education. Other than the videos, go to his blog and work your way back to the beginning. I don't know if it will answer your specific questions, but I'm sure it will give you some good ideas.

    The consulting page is new, but the blog goes back to when he was doing everything for free.

    Just some ideas...

    Rely on a web portal for everything related to school ensuring that the portal is compatible with safari.
    Disable app store, iTunes, with a secure code on every iPad.
    Apply parental control also in each of them
    Apply a twice a year check on the devices to make sure that kids are not fooling around with them
    Use a wireless gateway protected with a proxy to filter undesired content. Have a look at DansGuardian, great filtering tool with teens at home trying to get some porn or warez software
    Identify Mac address of each device with each potential user.

    iPad were not made for corporate use, so it is a bit hard to have a remote control over them. So instead, you can control the data accessed like a portal where they can get their emails, school works, etc...

    My 2 cents!
