Step 4 – Using Apple Classroom

Apple Classroom is used to guide instruction in the classroom. It is an essential tool for every classroom teacher!

Setting up Managed Apple ID on a MacBook

View video to learn how to sign in using your managed Apple ID on your Mac (what’s this?). This will allow Apple Classroom on your iPad and your MacBook to sync automatically.

With your iPad and MacBook both signed into iCloud with the Managed Apple ID, it will allow Apple Classroom classes to sync across devices so you only have to set up your classes once!  Even if your device would need to be wiped or reset, your classes would come back once you sign into your Managed Apple ID and then open Apple Classroom.

Please understand the immense importance of everyone using the Managed Apple IDs.  If one person chooses to use a regular Apple ID in iCloud, they will not be able to get Apple Classroom to work unless they sign out all the students as well.  If that is done, it will cause all other teachers who are using the Managed Apple ID to not be able to use Apple Classroom until all their students are signed back in.  

Have you forgotten your managed Apple ID? No problem. You can contact your building’s TSS or request a reset here and we will send it to you via email as quickly as possible.
