Recommendations for Teachers

Recommendations for
Students

1. Students should only use the iPad that has been assigned to them by their teacher – for the duration of the use of the iPad cart. * This will increase student ownership and therefore accountability of the device. It also helps with managed student content saved to the device.

1. Teachers should assign an iPad to each student to be used daily for the school year.

2. Students should return their iPads into the designated cart slots at the end of each period.

2. Teachers should talk to students about being courteous to their fellow students with whom the device is being shared (conceivably there could be 8 or 9 students sharing the same device). For example, students should not be changing the wallpaper image as it’s hard to know who could be offended.

3. Students should NEVER log into the iPads with a personal Apple ID from home. 

 
 

3. Continuously reiterate that students should be aware that their personal content stored on the iPad could be viewed, modified, or deleted by other students.

4. Students should NEVER add their school or personal email accounts to the iPads.  

4. Teachers, please be sure to LOCK up the iPad cart and that all iPads have been safely returned to their designated cart slot. 

5. Students should not move or delete any apps on the iPad.

 

6. Students should not change the settings on their iPads or download new updates. Any changes may send an alert to the Technology department.

 

7. For any app or website that requires students to log-in, they should LOG OUT after use.
