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:
- Self Service, which is the primary way we distribute apps, will not function with Safari disabled.
- Any shortcuts that are placed on the springboard will not work.
- Several websites that teachers depend on will not function properly in Mobicip.
