            How to Set Up Guided Access

            Guided Access helps students stay focused on a task while using an iPad. Guided Access limits the device to a single app and controls which app features are available.

            You can use Guided Access to:

            – Temporarily restrict your iPad to a single app.

            – Disable areas of the screen that aren’t relevant to a task in order to reduce distraction.

            – Disable the hardware buttons (sleep/wake button, home button).

            Set up Guided Access:

            Tap Settings > General > Accessibility > Guided Access. From there, you can:

            – Turn Guided Access on or off.

            – Set a passcode that controls Guided Access and prevents someone from leaving an active session.

            – Set whether the device can go to sleep during a session (LightSail will still log a student out after 10 minutes of inactivity).

            Start a Guided Access session:

            1. Open the app you want to use.

            2. Triple-click the Home button.

            3. Adjust settings for the session, and then tap Start. 

            End a Guided Access session:

            1. Triple-click the Home button.

            2. Enter the Guided Access passcode.
