In the initial setup sessions in August, we discussed using Mobicip as a filtered browser over Safari.  Parents were advised to set up an account for Mobicip and to restrict student access to Safari.  Although this general setup makes sense, I later learned that we cannot do this for a number of reasons:

  1. Self Service, which is the primary way we distribute apps, will not function with Safari disabled.
  2. Any shortcuts that are placed on the springboard will not work.
  3. Several websites that teachers depend on will not function properly in Mobicip.
I learned these things after attending a training on managing iPads.  In many of the sessions towards the end of the summer, I simply did not mention Mobicip at all.
So, please delete the Mobicip app and enable Safari under parental restrictions.  Thank you!
