Three Approaches for Getting Content to Elementary Students' iPads - No Email, No Problem This is a guest post from Beth Holland of EdTechTeacher.org From the beginning, a major challenge of working with iPads is actually working with iPads. Unlike a computer, there are no multi-user logins, no file structures, and no easy way to share these devices with multiple students. Additionally, in elementary classrooms the challenge becomes even more difficult. Students don't have email addresses. Here are three ways to approach distributing content to students without using email or having them log in and out of an account. Approach #1: Cloud Storage and ______ One of the most obvious answers to distributing content to students, is to leverage a cloud storage solution such as Drive, Dropbox, Box, or even Evernote.

Quick iPad Management Tips! Here are some helpful hints for your classroom iPad device management: - If you want to see what recent apps your students were using (to make sure they were on task, etc.) - simply double click on the home button (the only button on the face of the iPad) and a dock will appear. This dock lists the apps that were opened in chronological order (with the most recent being the one farthest to the left). - If you want to multi-task between several apps, you can double click the home button from within an app and tap an app from the bar below. This app is still "running" and therefore none of your progress will be lost. (This is helpful if students are filling out an exit ticket and want to switch screens to look up a word, or use a calculator -- when they switch back to Safari, their form will not have reloaded and they can continue from where they left off.) - If your students are accidentally deleting apps: Go to the settings, tap "General", then tap "Restrictions".
