Happy iPad Day at Hoover High School! Our seniors are super excited here and cannot wait to get thier hands on thier devices.
Below is a video of students on Day 1. Wonder how these might change by the end of the year?

We decided to hand out iPads through the student's English classes and I have included the directions below that we sent to teachers. As you can see we have planned for a help desk in A107, but to my knowledge, no student has been there yet. As we discussed earlier, they are such digital natives that they are just jumping right in and getting started!

Step 2
Once students have been issued an iPad, the class should return to the classroom and complete the following steps:
·         Open iPad
·         Power on iPad
·         iPad will automatically connect to HCS-Guest in the school building when available
·         Open Safari web browser.  The first page will be airwatch.hoover.k12.al.us
·         Enter group code ( HHS2013 ) and tap Next
·         Enter hoover\<userID> and password.  The backslash character is on the third keyboard on the iPad.  Tap Next
·         The screen will jump over to the settings page to Install the Profile.  Tap the Install button, then tap Install Now.
·         Tap Install on the warning screen, then Done on the Installed verification screen.
·         Following enrollment, any software from Hoover City Schools will pop up and attempt to install.

Students who cannot complete these steps should report to room A107 to receive tech assistance.
