2018-19 iPad Setup Guide and Updates
Below you will find a link to a Google Slide Show walking you through the process of setting up student iPads. You must be signed into your WCS Google Account in order to view it.
Additionally, there are a few new changes this year so please take a look to find out about the changes.
Updates for 2018/19:
✅ Student login cards should be in the pony to buildings for you to have in the next day or two.
✅ This year, students will be unable to modify their bluetooth settings. This will prevent them from ‘hiding’ in Apple Classroom. They CAN turn on airplane mode which will turn off the bluetooth radio, but that also turns off WiFi. So.. I’m guessing that defeats the purpose for them 😀
✅ Remember to set up your Apple Classrooms. Attached is a quick ‘how-to’ PDF. You can also log into Apple Teacher (https://appleteacher.apple.com/) and go through their three part course on using Apple Teacher. They’ll give you an overview, show you how to set up your class and how to integrate classroom into your class workflow! It’s a great resource! I 💯 recommend it.
✅ We’ve worked hard this summer to make sure all the iPads are up to date. However, inevitably some may have slipped through. Please check to make sure you iPads have all their updates applied. Once set up, go to Settings->General->Software Update. If there are any updates available, please run them.
