Remote Learning Technology Issues, Tips, and Updates
iPad Connectivity Issue?
- Turn on airplane mode. Wait 10 seconds and then turn airplane mode off.
- Be sure you have any unused browser windows closed; the iPads do not run as smoothly when there are several browser windows opened.
My student isn't being let into the class meeting. We don't see a JOIN link, or sometimes if we find the JOIN link it says the "Meeting hasn't started yet".
Background: We have discovered that it is important for the student to not click the JOIN button until the teacher has started the meeting.
Solution: Ask the student to wait until they see the purple camera icon on the Team channel before clicking the JOIN button. The picture below shows the right way to JOIN the meeting.
Background: IMS is communicating consistently with T-Mobile and they are responding quickly to issues and updating services to support OPS.
- If your learning location has WiFi available, you can connect to WiFi to be more stable.
- If you need to use the LTE cellular service, gather the information below and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- - Address where student is learning (home, daycare, relative, etc.)
- - iPAD ICCID number found on each iPad in the Settings-General-About-ICCID

Attendance and participation in remote learning is extremely important.

All visitors will be required to wear facial coverings while at the Family Support Center. We ask all staff and families to maintain distance whenever possible for the health and well-being of everyone.
