Getting started with your NYC borrowed iPad

Getting started with your NYC borrowed iPad

Sign in to the Learn at Home App

To get ready for the first day of school, make connecting to learning and support much easier for your child (and you, too!), and allow you to get notifications on the iPad:

  1. Find the Learn at Home icon on the main screen on the iPad

  2. Log in using your @nycstudents.net account (only use the student’s username and password, no need to include @nycstudents to log in)

  3. From the Learn at Home app your child can access TeachHub, Google Classroom and get help.

Enable Your iPad as a Hotspot

All centrally DOE-loaned iPads are now hotspots. This means other devices can connect to your iPad’s internet connection, for remote learning. To enable your hotspot:

  1. Go to Settings.

  2. Find Personal Hotspot and click to take you to the login screen

  3. Select Allow Others to Join.

  4. Devices other students in your house are using for remote learning can be added to that connection.

  5. As a reminder, the hotspot connection is to be used only for remote learning activities. Any unauthorized use is strictly prohibited.
