Managing Classroom iPads

Now that many teachers have a set of iPads in their classrooms, we are providing a number of improvements to the way iPads are managed.

Keeping iPads Organized

Icons and folders are now stuck in place and assigned to specific pages on the iPads. This will reduce the number of pages of Apps as well as ensuring that Apps are in the same place all time.

Installing Apps

An extensive App Catalogue has been provided with over 100 of the best iPad apps for Elementary students. The catalogue also includes any Apps purchased by the school. Installing apps from the catalogue does not require a password. Simply tap the app to install it.
HINT: Leave the App catalogue open for several minutes to ensure that the App request goes through.

Deleting Apps

Deleting Apps has also be made easier. Students are still not able to delete apps by tapping an holding them. However, teachers can go in through the Settings App and delete apps from there. Here is the procedure for deleting apps>

Open Settings/General/Storage & iCloud Usage/Manage Storage. Tap on the App to be deleted. Choose Delete.
