Do you use iPads in your classroom? We do! And it is great!
Sometimes we share iPads between classrooms- for testing, intervention groups, etc. Inevitably some iPads end up back in the wrong classroom causing confusion for students who do not know the passcode or cannot find the app they are used to.
After a year of trying to keep straight which iPad went to which classroom with 20+ kindergarteners moving around I came up with a solution. I think in this case, it is easier to show you a picture rather than explain it!
TAKE A SELFIE!! Now there is no question which class this iPad belongs to! Even the youngest student would be able to correctly identify which class it goes to.
Plus, it is fun! The kids love it! I took selfies with different kids for different iPads. They love seeing which picture is on the iPad they are completing their personalized learning on!
This simple solution has saved so much sorting and organization! Hope it helps! This could work with computers as well.
Now if I could just figure out a miracle solution for keeping headphones from being tangled....
