Tool #8: Taking a Look at the Tools

Three things that I learned about the device(s) that will be in my classroom this fall:
  • How to find the latest district approved version of iTunes and other software via Kace.
  • The latest version of Apple’s iOS will automatically syncs apps purchased via iTunes or another apple mobile device to other devices using the same iTunes account.  This feature can be adjusted in the iTunes settings Set Up Your iPad.
  • One way to trouble shoot any problems on the iPad is to restore the device to the factory settings  and then re-install the software.  This usually resolves many issues.
plan to use the devices that will be in my classroom this fall for Language Arts and Math.  I will create clear expectations on the use of the devices by modeling for students how to use the various apps that we will be using.  I will also need to coordinate with my Special Education team and come up with a system to share (check out) these devices since the team will be sharing the items we will receive.

  1. I have no doubt that you will use the devices with your kids and they will be successful with them. I can't wait to hear about their digital learning!
