Limit an iOS Device to Running a Single App

Tony Vincent is an Apple devices training guru who has his own site at learninginhand.com.  I discovered this short tutorial about locking students into one single app, which is a nice new accessibility feature of iOS 6.  Check out this tutorial here, which introduces us to Guided Access.  To launch Guided Access, do the following:
  1. Tap on the Settings.
  2. Go to General and choose Accessibility.
  3. Turn Guided Access On.
  4. Set a passcode.
  5. Launch the app you want to lock the device into.
  6. Triple-click the Home button.
  7. You can choose to disable touch or motion, in addition to disabling the Home and volume buttons.
  8. Tap the Start button.
