Maybe your Librarian could be in charge of this?
iPad Reminders • ~Please instruct/model for your students what apps they are to be on so that they are on content that is appropriate for them. • ~Please show students how to open/close/set up the ipad case. • ~ Please show all students how to close out apps at the end of the day so that it is ready for the next user. • ~Please remind your students they are NOT allowed to go into ipad settings at all-changing settings will result in loss of privilege to use the devices. • ~Please do not allow your students to eat snack or enjoy beverages while using the ipads. • ~Please model for students how to plug/unplug headphones carefully (we have had a few earphone jacks break off in ipads). • ~If your ipads are ever not picked up by the Young Librarians, please return them to the library that afternoon.
