Supporting Teachers with iPad Transition


We are preparing to shift our 3rd-8th grade teachers from MacBooks to iPads over the next three years, starting with 3rd and 6th grade teachers. We are getting ready to provide an initial introduction to the teachers. What are the top things to showcase and lead them through? We were already thinking of:

  • Accessibility features
  • Classroom and Schoolwork
  • Multitasking
  • Apple core apps - Pages, Numbers, Keynote

Any other ideas or resources to point to so we can make this successful?

Ohhh, these are such amazing starting points! I love the idea of starting with Accessibility features, specifically personalizing their new device to fit their learning needs. Maybe add some productivity tips like using Focus, Reminders, setting up Calendar, etc. I think the mobility of the Camera will be a great addition to what they are use to - maybe doing a photo activity? And for sure show them all this content can be learned in Apple Teacher at a personalized pace! : ) #LetsGoIL

Hi, we rolled out ipads on a 1:1 basis throughout our school. Id say one of the first things we needed to know was how we would store work. We use showbie and have a system of how our classes are set up that all classes follow. This makes it more streamlined across the school and everyone knows how to use it. Easier when children move from one class to another. Also having time for staff to play about with the ipad and discover what can be done. I like things like chatterpix, clips and iMovie to make lessons more interactive and engaging.
