The initial setup is easiest by simply plugging your iPad
into your computer for the first time and following the prompts to set it up.
Here are some things to consider:
Name – If your planning on using this with a lot
of other iPads in a classroom, you should name your iPad something that will
differentiate it from the others.
For example “Room 310 Master iPad” or “Dixon Middle School Teacher
iPad”. All other iPads could be
named with a number, i.e. “JMS iPad #1”.
Payments – Whether you’re going to purchase
content with your own personal
credit card, a school account, or using gift cards, have an idea in place of
how you’re going to pay for purchases through the iTunes store.
Bulk-Purchasing - If you need to make large
purchases for multiple devices, check with an Apple representative about a
Main Computer – Which computer will you be
syncing this with? You can sync
one iPad with up to 5 devices.
The best and easiest way to manage content on your iPad is by plugging your iPad into your computer and managing it through iTunes.
