QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Q. I downloaded the Free Books App, can I import all of my free books into iBooks?
A: The free books App has not made the integration into iBooks as of yet. You can however, Download, or place books in Dropbox for sharing. My suggestion is when you open the Free Books App, click on the ? on the top left, go to support and ask for them to make the integration into ibooks. From reading through some of the suggestions, it seems as if they are very responsive to user suggestions and comments.
Q. I have a mac book. I want to download all of my keynote presentations and Pages to my iPad, but my Macbook does not have iCloud, can I do it?
A: Yes. However there are a few things to keep in mind. You can easily create an iCloud account for yourself, it is free. If you do not wish to have an iCloud account, or are using an older Macbook, please follow the directions below. Also, if you do not have the iWorks apps (Keynote, Pages) on your iPad, you will have to purchase them. ($9.99 each) The apps for the computer and the iPad are separate. Once you have the apps on the iPad, follow these instructions. 1. Plug the iPad in to the Macbook. 2. Open iTunes. 3. In iTunes you will see a list of music and devices on the left side. Click on the iPad device. 4.Then you will see a gray toolbar on top of iTunes starting with the word "Summary", click on the 3rd choice, "Apps". 5.This will open a new screen and at the bottom of the screen you will see "Apps" & "Documents Box" 6. When you click on Keynote in the left box it will allow you to click on "add in the right box, and you can select all of the keynotes you desire. 7. When you finish, sync the iPad.
Q: Will I have wireless access in the High School?
A: Yes. Our intent was to get the IPAD’s to everyone before the break so you can enjoy and use the device. We will be working over spring break to set up the wireless infrastructure. When you return you will be given access.
Q: What is the main objective of the IPAD right now? What is expected of us at this point?
A: You received the IPAD early because we knew it would take time for everyone to become familiar with the device. The HS staff has from now until September to get acquainted with the IPAD. Take the time to explore apps and the endless possibilities the device has to offer. PD has already been set-up and will begin in May 2012. In addition, we will have an Apple Genius Bar set up in the High School, and you will have the ability to get one on one time with an Apple Representative.
Q: What should I do if I already have an IPAD and/or an ITunes account?
A: You have several options in this scenario. You can keep the same ITunes account for all of your devices. You can then manually manage what you send to each device should you choose this option. All your material does not necessarily need to be synched.
Q: Can I create another ITunes account if I already have one?
A: Yes. Many people use two ITunes accounts to manage their data.
Q: If I purchased apps with one account do I have to purchase them again with a second account?
A: No. You can switch back and forth from ITunes accounts on the IPAD and re-install apps you have already purchased on the new IPAD.
Q: What if I already synched my IPAD to an existing ITunes account and I want to start over or open another ITunes account?
A: Plug in your IPAD to the computer you synced it with. Click restore to factory settings
Q: How do I purchase apps?
A: For now that is your responsibility? Explore and test apps. Many educational apps are free. For September there will be a process to purchase apps and get them to the students. More details will follow.
Q: Am I allowed to keep my personal photos, apps, and music on my IPAD?
A: Yes. This is your iPAD. Please however be aware of two important facts.
1. The device is still owned by the LBOE. The district reserves the right to view content on the device.
2. The IPAD is 16 GB and this content may take away from space needed for instructional purposes.

A: Insurance is available through 4 companies for the iPAD.
