Bring Your iPads to Library!

4th Grade Students will be participating in a lesson called,  "Can You Answer a Question with a Picture?"

This lesson is designed to introduce students to great ways to use iPads for Learning. We will focus on understanding the rules and agreeing to follow them, especially in regards to use of the camera. Students are encouraged to share this lesson with families in the hopes that you will continue having conversations at home about acceptable iPad use.

A school owned iPad is certainly much different than a personal home device and we are all learning this together.

Lock Screens

  • Do you have an avatar on your lockscreen?
  • Is your avatar labeled?
  • If it is not labeled, try using another app to draw or type on it.
  • Need help? Wednesday between 11:00-12:00, library classroom
