LearnPad can be in one of three lock modes:
- Locked (Student Mode): Where only the LearnPad interface is visible and only approved resources are available.
- Unlocked (Teacher Mode): Where a dedicated Teacher category is available and no application or website blocking is applied.
- Unlocked (Admin Mode): Where LearnPad can be used as a fully-functional Android tablet. The secure LearnPad interface can be relaunched at any time and quickly locked.
The lock status of LearnPad is indicated by the padlock icon at the top of the screen.
