iPad Program: Covers
It is very important and expected that students have covers for their iPads. iPad covers come in many styles and levels of functionality and protection. It would be advisable to have a cover with the following properties:
- A cover that protects the corners and back of the iPad as well as the screen, minimising the chance of screen breakage if accidentally dropped. The cover you choose needs to be able to absorb the shock transmitted to the iPad when it is dropped.
- A cover that provides access to a keyboard. By adding a keyboard via a cover, the amount of information visible on the screen is increased, keyboarding skills are further developed in preparation for the future use of a range of other devices, and the completion of a wider range of types of learning tasks will be advantages experienced.
Some examples of the more robust covers with keyboards:
Logitech Rugged Keyboard Folio for iPad
Zagg Rugged Messenger Wireless Keyboard Case iPad

Many general office and electronic supply stores will also supply these covers.
Whilst the College cannot guarantee the protection of the iPad, these types of cases may assist.
NOTE: iPad bags and satchels are also available at the College Uniform Shop
Should I have a protective film on the screen of the iPad?
Protective film on the iPad screen can protect it from scratches and this is an option that you may wish to consider.
