Guided Access - Keeping Students in an App

With the new iOS6 update there were lots of new features but by far one feature has been asked for numerous times by teachers and it's finally here.....Guided Access.
You are now able to lock an app so that students are only able to access that one app.

The uses for this is numerous in an educational setting.
This is not just for management for behavior, we've all had the squirrels that love to do everything they are asked not to, but also for easier use for young students or students with limited motor skills who may click out of apps.

Video was made with screenr (online screencasting software) and reflection app on the computer.  
You can also access the how to video HERE.
