Tech @ SMA
For class of 2023 and students transferring to St. Mary's Academy click here for information about iPad and Tech Camp.
- School Managed vs. Personal Apple ID
- In selecting an iPad case, the three most important requirements are:
- Where is the responsible use policy?
- iPad Contracts
- Transfer Student and Freshman (Class of 2023) iPad Tech Camp
- Class of 2023 iPad Information
- Who owns the iPad?
St. Mary's issues a managed Apple ID for all new students, faculty and staff. The primary reasons we use this is to allow for 200GB of iCloud backup/storage and for the option of teachers to use the Classroom App.
A personal Apple ID is also required as that is what will be used by students, faculty and staff to purchase/download Apps, books, etc. from Apple. This can be an Apple ID that already exists or you can set up one through https://appleid.apple.com. Note: As long as the Apple ID is unique to a person it can be part of Family Sharing offered by Apple.
St. Mary's Academy 1:1 iPad program and beyond ...
We began our 1:1 iPad program in Fall of 2013 and it has been very successful. The dramatic changes in classroom learning have been extraordinary and we strive to not only improve on that model but to provide information to other schools on how they can transition to a 1:1 iPad program smoothly.
