It is hard to believe that the day finally arrived for the deployment of our iPads today at BHS. We started with the distribution of iPads with some our BHS Help Desk students and ended with our first auditorium presentation to a larger group of about 120 students and parents.
Here is a summary of what we covered:
Setting Up Your iTunes Account - We Recommend An Account Without A Credit Card Attached
Installing the Lightspeed Browser App - Go To Self-Service App on the iPad and pull up the list of suggested apps. Install the Lightspeed Browser - The code that needs to be entered is 02132423.
Other apps we recommend in the Self-Service App - Dropbox, Evernote, CNN Money, Kindle, Nook, QR Code Reader
Download our new e-Pub version of the BHS Student/Parent Handbook - In order to download the handbook students will need to have iBooks installed on their iPad. This free app is available in the App Store. Once iBooks is installed just go to the BHS EdTech Wiki and clicking on the link at the top of the page that says BHS Student Handbook 2011 ePub and then you will be prompted to open the link in iBooks.
