1.2 Account Setup & Backing Up

One to World Boot Camp


Do you have any Updates waiting to be completed on your iPad or Computer? Run these.

Grades 4 & 5: Check Email and Schoology.

Lesson 1.2 Account Setup & Backing Up

Background: This session covers 'cloud computing', and is of great importance as computers shrink in size and become more portable.

Hard drives once used to be the main storage space for all your documents, music, videos and personal data. Now we store these things on hard drives (servers) that we can access via an internet connection. This helps keep computers such as the iPad, or any other portable device very small and light.

Another word for storing your digital possessions on servers that you can access via the internet is 'the cloud'.

Account Setup Checklist:

Teachers, to ensure a smooth year it is imperative to go through these steps with your class. 

*Can students sign into Apple's cloud service? Have all students sign in with their Apple ID and password to be sure.

Copy and paste the information below and send it to parents of new students or students who do not know or have an Apple ID.

Info about the setup:
Want to setup an AppleID to download only FREE Apps?
Note: If you're using a Family Share plan, you must include a credit card. The option for "none" is not available for that plan. This is a new change from Apple. 

*Check that students' student emails are connected to the mail app:

  1. Tap Settings.

  1. My class did the team challenge today and it went so well! They were so excited to share what they know about technology. I posted the video of one group's skit to my YouTube channel, but will share it on here as well. The sound is not so good...I was pretty far away in filming in order to get the whole group in the shot. It may be best to plug in your speakers in order to hear the audio better. Check it out!
