An iPad workshop for all parents

Managing the iPad, working with Apple IDs and controlling restrictions


Thursday, 5 October. 1.30pm  – 3.30pm – Please register below

Kolbe Catholic College are running a holiday workshop for parents that would like to improve their management of the iPad. This workshop is available to the whole community, not just Kolbe parents. So even if your son or daughter attends another “iPad school”, we are encouraging you to join us for this 2 hour session.

A workshop for parents: Managing the iPad, working with Apple id’s and controlling restrictions.

1. An overview of the iPad
Quickly learn how to navigate the iPad, the settings, Apple ID and iCloud.

2. Let’s look at Apple’s Family Sharing.
Pay for family purchases with the same credit card and approve kids’ spending right from a parent’s device.

3. Learn how to keep track of where everyone is, and find lost devices easier.
Make ‘sharing your location’ work for you and your children.

4. Create an account for kids under 13
as a parent or legal guardian, the family organiser can create an Apple ID for a child and add the child to the family group automatically. Great for Year 7 (or younger) students.

5. Manage restrictions
Happy with how the iPad is set up? Learn how to use basic Restrictions to better manage the student’s experience and to stop them from adding apps or changing settings.

6. Apps for learning
A quick overview of the apps which are required for learning.

Places are limited, so please register now.
