Using Schoolwork with iPad
Schoolwork is an iPad app for students and teachers that makes it easy to share and receive content, collaborate, and integrate app activities into class instruction and homework assignments, wherever learning is happening.
Using simple, integrated workflows, students and teachers can share and collaborate—even when students are out of the classroom. Teachers can assign students anything from PDFs, links, and documents, to activities within an app. Teachers can easily view class and student progress data, use the data to better understand how students are doing, and individualize instruction based on student needs. For students, messages and assignments automatically appear on their iPad, organized by class and due date. In this way, they have a single place to find content and instruction, submit work, and view their own progress.
Schoolwork requires the use of Managed Apple IDs and class rosters in Apple School Manager. Complete the steps below to get students and teachers set up with Schoolwork:
Create Managed Apple IDs for students and teachers: This gives them access to Schoolwork. For more information, see What are Managed Apple IDs? in the Apple School Manager User Guide.
Set up classes and class rosters in Apple School School Manager: Classes included in SIS connections or SFTP uploads automatically create Schoolwork classes for you. Schoolwork is also automatically updated as students move in and out of classes in Apple School Manager. You can also manually create classes in Apple School Manager and allow teachers to create, edit, remove, and delete classes in Schoolwork by enabling the “Create, edit, and delete classes” privilege for the Instructor role in Apple School Manager.
Get the Schoolwork app in the Apps and Books sidebar in Apple School Manager and install it on teacher and student devices.
Enable student progress for your organization in Apple School Manager. Instructors can see how students are doing on assigned activities in any ClassKit-enabled app when the student progress feature in Schoolwork is enabled. You can still use Schoolwork even if you don’t enable this feature. For more information, see the task “Allow student progress” on Edit organization settings in the Apple School Manager User Guide.
Instruct students and teachers to use their Managed Apple ID to sign in to iPad. When they open Schoolwork, they have access to all their classes.
