Adding your LearnPads to Places

Adding your LearnPads to Places

When setting up your LearnPads, you should add them into Places. Places make it easier to manage your LearnPads from the Dashboard in the ClassConnect Portal.

Places usually refer to physical locations such as charging units, classrooms or year groups but could also refer to teachers.

If you have two group sets of LearnPads that you share throughout your school, you might add them to Places called Set 1 and Set 2. Alternatively, you might create Places named after each teacher and affix Place QrKeys to the doors of their classrooms and ask pupils to scan the QrKey when they come into the room. If you have a group set of LearnPads for each classroom, you might add them to Places called Ash Class or Cedar class. Give some thought to the best way to use Places for your setting.
