Tech Tips Tuesday: Locking Apps on iPad/iPod

Hey guys, how's it going?

I don't know about you, but I am definitely enjoying my Spring Break!!

Yes, it is this week, and tomorrow I will be headed to the beach!!!

Alright, I'm back for another Tech Tips Tuesday to show you something new that I learned!

How annoying is it when your students do not stay on the apps that they're supposed to be on?!?

Especially when it's a math walkthrough, and they're over there playing Starfall!!

Well, have no fear, with the latest iOS update, there is a way that you can

lock your kiddos directly into the app that you want them to use.

Make sure you have updated your device to the latest software!!!

Also, this is only available on the 4th generation iPod's or newer, and the iPad 2 or newer.

I love being able to choose what areas I do not want my students to go to!

There are so many places that are advertisements, and the students click on them,

and confusion ensues from there!!

Click the start button, and you should be good to go.

Once Guided Access has started, your students will not be able to get out of the app.

When center time is over, make sure that you turn it off, because it will keep the 

app running, which will drain your battery!

To do so, just click the home button three times, and then put in the password. 

Let me know what you think!
