This is an audio recording of Lorin Swenson and Wes Fryer’s presentation, “Tips for Managing, Wifi, iPads, and Chromebooks” at the 2016 Interactive Learning Institute (ILI) on November 30, 2016, in Norman, Oklahoma. ILI is sponsored by the K20 Center at the University of Oklahoma, and is an annual event focused on sharing best practices for technology integration in K12 classrooms. Grant recipients for OETT (the Oklahoma Education Technology Trust) administered by the K20 Center are among the participants in the conference, but it is open to educators at all levels from any school. The quality of this audio recording improves quite a bit about six minutes into the presentation, because we relocated the recorder in the room. The official program description for this session was:

Learn tips from the IT Department staff at Casady School about managing school wifi in a BYOD environment, managing iPad apps and access restrictions with an MDM (mobile device manager), and managing student Chromebooks using the Google Apps for Education (GAFE) administrator console. We’ll also address our layered network security strategy including endpoint security software, a next-generation firewall (NGFW) with in-line deep packet inspection (DPI), and more.
