iPads in Gateway USD

As part of the 1:1 Digital Learning Initiative, Gateway Unified School District will be deploying over 3,000 iPads to educational staff and students.

Teachers will have the opportunity attend teacher- (and sometime IT-led) professional development on (and off) the iPad including:

  • Pedagogical uses in the classroom
  • Use of apps in a classroom environment
  • Device Management
  • And other topics

The district has licensed the use of Microsoft Office 365, and supporting many other apps, on the iPads to further enhance the classroom experience. Including, but not limited to:

  • Power Point - Presentation
  • Excel - Spreadsheet
  • Word - Document processing
  • OneDrive for Business - File storage and management
  • GoodReader - PDF annotations

These apps integrate with the district's email, computer/network login, and document sharing between staff and students, allowing for seamless collaboration, and access of files from school or home.

iPad Support

Although iPads usually managed themselves, they are still computers that require some know-how and/or maintenance/troubleshooting to keep the device running smoothly.
