iPads in the MSHS Classrooms

Posted by ssweeney on February 18, 2016

Reviewing and Selecting Apps

  • Teachers can check out iPads for planning and app review from the library
  • Find Apps using the Apps Store
  • Read Reviews
  • Look for Award Winners
  • Use the App Review Rubric

How do I checkout iPads for my class to use?

Google Calendar Reservations Please only reserve the iPads for the periods you will be using them.  Do not block entire days or weeks.  These are shared devices.

How do I get the app I need on them?

At least 48 hours in advance, complete the App Review Rubric

Where are the iPad carts stored?

The room that the grade level team selected.

What happens if one is damaged?

Please complete a tech request and send the device to the IT office

What happens if an iPad is lost?

Please email the IT ASAP.  We have Find My Device setup to locate missing devices.

How do I get student work off of the iPad?

We recommend uploading to Google Drive into a shared folder.  Students and teachers have unlimited storage in Google Drive through their amersol.edu.pe accounts.  It is important to test the app you wish for students to use before hand to ensure that it allows for students to export their content.

How do I distribute the iPads?

Each iPad has a number on it, please know which kids has which iPad, so if the project lasts more than one day, you know who has which device.  Also, incase one iPad is missing we know who has it last.

Who is responsible for counting the iPads?

Each teacher that uses the iPads with a class should ensure they have recollected all of them.  We have numbered the iPads to help with this.  Please also ensure that they are all plugged in and charging so that other classes are able to use them when they need to.

What additional resources do we have for use with iPads?

  • 2 class sets of styluses can be checked out from AV
  • microphones can be checked out from AV
  • Film Studio in the PAC can be checked out using Google Calendar for green screen filming
