Sight and Sound Program: the iPads and the Internet
This entry should be read by both PERC staff and Tech Squad Volunteers.
I want to thank you for all your help and patience as we added the iPads to our Sight and Sound Program. You have all been very patient with me as I explained the new procedures, which seem to be constantly changing! THANK YOU!
Now I need to ask your assistance once more. Because the instruction sheet explaining how to turn on the iPad and connect to the wireless network is incorrect, I am asking you to perform these steps for the borrower. (I am redoing the instruction sheet.)
If you are not completely comfortable with turning on the iPads and/or connecting to the Wi-Fi, please let me know. I will be glad to work with you until you feel comfortable with this step.
The iPads usually go directly to the "sign in screen" once Safari is tapped. However, sometimes this is not the case. In instances when you tap Safari and the "log in" screen does not automatically appear, go to the the "Settings" icon and check on the left side for Wi-Fi. If it is not on, press the Off> to turn on Wi-Fi and select the Guest network. This should route you directly to the "sign in screen".
If you are still having problems, you can turn off the iPad completely, wait a few seconds and then turn it back on. You can also try another device. Remember, the Wi-Fi can be finicky, so do the best you can -- as you always do!
We have had a lot of changes lately, so if you have any questions on anything discussed in this entry, please do not hesitate to let me know. I will do my best to clarify any procedures that might be confusing.
Once again, thank you for all your help! --Lori
