iPad Class Rules

We all have different needs and so different rules. Some basic rules that we all should have include:
  • No food or drink near the iPads
  • Close the iPad cover before you walk
  • Do not remove the iPad from the room without express permission
  • Do not change any settings without express permission

What other rules would you add?

Here is what we use in room 7 at Bagby -

Usernames and app sign-in/sign-up

For certain apps, students will need to provide a username and password. It is a good idea to have a naming convention, such as


For example, at Bagby we use
BAG0700 or BAG0800

For password, we use the same password the kids use to get onto the computers, in our case Bagb123

If they need to provide an email, we use their google email ID. Usually you can give any password, so we use the BagXXX one, not their google one. If the app needs a confirmation through email, this will not work.

Yes, there are standards for technology, both for teachers and students. As well, California has embedded technology into some of our standards.

ISTE's NETS for Students (NETS•S) are the standards for evaluating the skills and knowledge students need to learn effectively and live productively in an increasingly global and digital world. Today's students need to be able to use technology to analyze, learn, and explore. Digital age skills are vital for preparing students to work, live, and contribute to the social and civic fabric of their communities. Visit the International Society for Technology in Education. CUE provides leadership and support to advance student achievement in the educational technology community in California and Nevada.
