Workshop 1 - Will Involve Setting up Your iPAD for Use at School and Home

STEP 1 - Setting up your Passcode Lock

  • First thing to do is go to Settings and tap on Passcode Lock
  • Enter the passcode - which is the number of the sticker on the back of your device

  • Once entered click on Simple Passcode - as all you will need is a four digit passcode which is easy to remember (PLEASE use a number you will remember and write it down somewhere private just in case!)
  • And then tap Change passcode - type in original again and then your new four digit passcode
  • Make sure to set the iPAD to autolock after a certain number of minutes for security

STEP 2 - Top Tip

  • As shown in Screenshot 6 - in the settings page there are two other elements I would advise you turning on - 1) is the screenlock rotation with the sideswitch, I promise you it stops many annoying moments; 2) the Multitasking Gestures as this will enable easy switch between screens and applications

STEP 3 - International Keyboards and Languages

  • Within the setting area another simple but important thing to do as we all speak different languages is to setup your iPAD so you can change the keyboard accordingly.
  • Simply go to International keyboards and choose as shown below

  • Then in any application just hold down the world key - and up will pop whichever keyboards you have chosen ready to use automatically - cool huh.
