I am looking for a way to enable my students to have a choice betweena few apps, but not have free reign over the whole iPad. I am willing to try any suggestions.

iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi

    You might want to investigate Guided Access. That feature locks the iPad into a single App.

    I have used guided access. But that only allows them to use one app. Which is nice, but at kindergarten the kids get bored of an app extremely fast. I was looking for a way to allow them to use only a specific few apps. Guided access for like two-three apps at once.

    No, Guided Access is for one app only.

    You have to uninstall all the other apps except those that are bundled with the IOS.

    Also Settings > General > Restrictions > turn off the things you want.

    One way to achieve this would be to slim-down the installed Apps on those iPads to just the Apps you are interested in and place restrictions on Installing Apps, Deleting Apps, iTunes, Safari, etc.


    You might also want to look at the Apple Configurator.
