Locking users into a single app
If your child is often exiting out of their work in order to play games or procrastinating for longer than they shuold then these tools for iPads and Android tablets may be what you are after. This is not a substitute for adult supervision but a useful feature you can use to help your child focus on what is important at the time.
Please note: If a teacher has added a link to a video or site as part of your child's learning, using these features will block students from accessing these resources.
Guided Access allows you to restrict a user into a single app, turn off features like volume and wake/sleep buttons and also lets you set a timer for how long the restriction is in place.

Screen Pinning lets you restrict a user into a single app while still being able to use all of the apps features.
