Some iPad Management Tips, Part 2!

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.

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.

iPads in Guided Reading Before a class set of iPads I was differentiating my literacy centers for guided reading. Here were some of literacy centers and how I differentiated them: 1. Word Study--At the beginning of the year, it is beginning sounds. FLYING Egg Carton Helicopter! - How Wee Learn We store up our cardboard egg cartons during the winter to use in the spring for starting our seeds for our garden. However, this year we were given some little peat pots from a friend. Therefore, we have quite a few extra egg cartons lying around. And around here, if anything lays around for too long it will be used in a craft of some sort! The first craft an egg carton has found its way into … this AWESOME egg carton helicopter!

Classroom iPod touches & iPads: Dos and Don'ts Do delete content. Since you are mirroring the computer's iTunes Library onto the iPods, deleting items from iTunes will delete them from the iPods. After you no longer have a need for a podcast, video, or audiobook, delete it so it is not taking up room and cluttering up the iPods. Chances are you want to use this content with a future class. If it's something you will use again, drag and drop it into a folder on your desktop. You can drag and drop it back into iTunes for the next time you want it synced to iPods.
