Some iPad Management Tips, Part 2!
We have FINALLY gotten cases for our iPad 2s! Hooray! In honor of these new accessories, I wanted to share some quick iPad management tips with everyone: 1 - Color code your iPad cases for easy 1:1 access We have 5 students at each table and have assigned each seat a color. Each table has five differently colored iPads, and so when a student in seat "red" reaches for an iPad he or she doesn't need to rummage through the bin; they can easily see the red case and get "their" device. 2- Create desktop backgrounds to show numeration The cases cover the backs - where we originally had numerated stickers showing which iPad was which. I did it this way - rather than creating the image on the iPad - for two reasons. 3 - Create shortcuts to frequently visited sites (Study Island, Class Google Site, etc) Open your iPad's Safari app and type in the URL of the site that you'd like to visit. 4 - Create differentiated folders for apps Group your apps into folders based on level.
