Use the following guide to help you connect your student iPads to your Apple Classroom app.

Classroom turns your iPad into a powerful teaching assistant, helping you guide students through a lesson, see their used apps, remote view each iPad, and keep them on track. With Classroom, you can easily launch the same app on every student iPad at the same time or launch a different app for each group of students.

Classroom helps teachers focus on teaching, so students can focus on learning.

Before starting the lesson to on-board students

Make sure you have:

  • Apple Classroom app on your iPad
  • Create your class in the app before sitting with the students
