Say you have a Department iPad set, the students have produced some media [pictures or videos] and you need to fetch a copy. Here’s how:
On the iPads:
We tried sharing the file, but as of this writing the dialog box will not let you type an address. It MIGHT work in Safari, though.
A quick note on how to get movies and pictures from your iPad to your Google Drive.
1. Fire up Google Drive
2. Click the UPLOAD icon [a plus sign]
3. You can select to upload from the camera roll – so make the selection, and click upload.
4. From there you can SHARE a file with anyone – who can then access it through THEIR Google drive and download it.
Obviously, if you don’t USE powerschool on the iPad, you can safely ignore this entry!

If you are using the Powerschool App and you see empty classes after you login successfully, try these Tech Voodoo steps:
Reboot your ipad
Delete the app and redownload it.
If you are having this problem you are not alone.
If you are trying to use Powerschool on an iPad web browser [Safari, Chrome, etc]:
A> If you are trying to take attendance and the classes are showing up empty, try switching to the desktop site:
At the top left corner of the page is a button that takes you back [NOT the browser’s back button!]
Keep clicking it until you see a list of links – the bottom one will say Exit to Main PS Site. Click it.
Attendance should work from that screen.
B> Try deleting your cache:
Settings –> Safari
Click the “Clear Cookies and Data” button
Fire up Chrome
Click the Menu icon [top right, looks like 3 lines]
Under Advanced –> Privacy
Click “Clear Cache” & “Clear Cookies, Site Data”
