What's New at Hartley
Technology makes life easier and your iPad is a wonderful tool for you. No lugging around 20 lbs. of books, forgetting an important book at school, accidentally doodling in your chemistry book….
But with this privilege comes responsibility. Every student is expected to be in compliance on their iPad, to protect it from damage, and to stay current on updates. The specifics of your obligations were included in the iPad contract you signed at the beginning of the year. But, in case you’ve forgotten, here’s a friendly reminder.
Compliance on school issued iPads is mandatory. Students must be in compliance all day, every day. Student app reports are run continuously, including after school and on the weekends.
If students are found to be not in compliance, their iPad will be remotely locked with the possibility of being reset. Resetting the iPad could cause students to lose documents or notes which have not been saved to DropBox (the cloud) or elsewhere.
Use DropBox to save and take your work on the go. All notes, class assignments, projects, and presentations need to be saved to DropBox. If something happens to your iPad, your documents are always available in DropBox. You can access any file you save to your DropBox from any of your home computers, iPads, phones and even the DropBox website.
For specific information on whitelisted apps, iPad tips, usage instructions, another copy of the contract and other be sure to check out the Technology Resources.
