Learning with iPad - 29th September 2016.

A full free day of CPD open to all educators looking at how iPad can be used to transform learning across the curriculum.

Apple has truly transformed teaching and learning over the past five years, when you put Apple products in your classroom, you can create unique opportunities for personal learning at every level. Lessons become more immersive through the power of touch, motion and sound. Assignments can be sketched, scored, charted, coded, or performed. The work your students need to do becomes work they love to do. 

A successful deployment can truly transform teaching and learning. However, such deployments of technology sometimes fail due to a lack of planning, knowledge and/or staff training. By attending our learning with iPad day, you will gain an overview of the core foundations needed to embed Apple technology within your school.

We will cover the very latest tools available to manage the iPad:

- Apple School Manager - Device, content, data and student management 
- Classroom app - Teacher tools for classroom management
- Shared iPad - Multi User iPad solution

As well as covering these key areas:

- Data Workflow - Accessing, sharing and distributing data/content
- Purchasing, distributing and managing school owned apps
- Device supervision, auto configuration and payload delivery

Beyond the technology, we will be looking at how in real terms Apple technology has been successfully integrated into the curriculum at Malmesbury Church of England Primary School. Mr. Dan Oakes - Deputy Headteacher will take you through their journey with Apple technology and discuss the opportunities it has created and look at the impact upon teaching and learning.

The day will culminate with a chance for you to try out some of the new skills learned during the day, you will get two hands on sessions with the latest Apple technology. Our Apple mentor will guide you through our CPD sessions, both designed to reflect real life classroom situations, but equally demonstrating how engaging digital learning can be.

Our hosts


Malmesbury school are hosting our Learning with iPad event. The school recognised that students needed exposure to the very latest technology being used in industry today, and quickly identified the potential of using Apple technology to deliver a truly engaging learning environment for their students. Mr Dan Oakes - Deputy Headteacher, will be sharing their digital learning journey with you and showing how the school has embedded Apple technology into both teaching and learning. 

About the school

Malmesbury Church of England Primary School is a happy community, where we develop rounded children with a love of learning and the confidence to meet life’s challenges. Our ethos is summed up in the statement ‘Together taking every opportunity to make our best better.’

With consistently high academic results, sporting excellence and a superb building and grounds, the school has much to be proud of. However, there is never a moment for complacency, so we are constantly striving to improve. We reflect the community which we serve: one with the proudest of histories but also at the cutting edge of innovation. As a Church of England Academy our values inform, infuse and enrich everything we do. Love, Respect, Courage, Kindness, Creativity and Independence are the heart of our school.
Mr. Steve Heal, Headteacher


All things iPad

We recognise that today’s generation learn and engage differently to students in the past and that schools need to adapt and change to reflect the wider changes in society.
To keep students engaged and motivated schools need to compete with an ever increasing range of media.

To meet these demands in 2011 we introduced our first iPads into classrooms. They have proved to be an incredible success and are now used across the school. Our Year 6 children are now each provided with their very own iPad to support them with their learning in school throughout the year.

Some of the apps and topics we will be presenting on the day


Apple School Manager

The new Apple School Manager is a simple, web-based portal that has everything admins need to deploy iPad and Mac in schools. Automatically create Managed Apple IDs for all students and staff, configure device enrolment settings, and easily buy and distribute apps, books and learning materials. And you can log in from a web browser on any Mac or PC. Create an account for your institution to get started, or sign in with your existing Apple Deployment Programme account to transfer your accounts, devices and content.
Managed Apple IDs

Managed Apple IDs are a new kind of Apple ID that give students access to iCloud, iTunes U and Shared iPad, while maintaining the control schools need. Apple School Manager lets you automatically create Managed Apple IDs for all students and staff by importing the necessary data from your Student Information System (SIS) or CSV files exported from your school’s directory service. And because Managed Apple IDs are owned and assigned by your institution, you can easily reset passwords, audit accounts and define roles for everyone in the school.
Shared iPad

Shared iPad is a new iOS 9 feature for schools that share devices and still want to provide personalised experiences. Before class begins, teachers can assign any student any shared iPad. Students know which devices to use because their pictures are on the Lock screens. Students can access their personal content using a password or easy-to-remember four-digit PIN. And because data is locally stored on the devices, after they log in, their homework, apps and assignments are exactly as they left them. So teachers and technology managers won’t lose time backing up or wiping data between classes. 
Classroom App

Classroom is a powerful new iPad app that helps teachers guide learning, share work and manage student devices. Teachers can launch a specific app, website or textbook page on any device in the class, or share student work on a TV, monitor or projector using Apple TV. They can even reset a student’s password, see which apps students are working in and assign a specific shared iPad for the class period. The Classroom app is easy to set up on a teacher’s iPad with the help of MDM.
Apple School Manager and MDM

You can set up iPad and Mac wirelessly through your mobile device management (MDM) solution. Since your MDM and Apple School Manager work together seamlessly, you can automate setup and enrolment with the right settings and restrictions, then assign devices and apps according to the class groups you’ve defined. MDM also makes it simple to manage your devices and settings throughout the year. You can reconfigure Home screen layouts, show or hide certain apps, schedule overnight software updates and use Lost Mode to track down misplaced devices.
