    I really like the decorated number for the home screen image. I imagine students will see the purpose to that and won’t change it (hopefully). I teach the iPad search function for students so that they don’t have to worry about where apps are- from any home screen, swipe downwards in the middle and type the first letter or two of the app you are looking for. It works pretty well for older elementary…I can see needing the consistency of homepage organization though for the younger ones.
