Kiosk Mode enables schools who do not issue a device for every student to utilize SmartPass. By placing a Chromebook, iPad, or any web-enabled device in the corner of a room, Students can use the kiosk to select their destination and maintain a digital history of when they left the classroom. Teachers are still able to issue Passes to students and hall monitors can verify that Students in the hall are traveling with a pass.
How to enter Kiosk Mode
First, make sure your Teacher account has a room assigned to it and that you can see the My Room Tab.
If you have multiple rooms assigned to your account, select the All Rooms drop down and click on the Room that the kiosk is going to placed in.
Click on the enter Kiosk Mode button.
How to exit Kiosk Mode
Once Kiosk Mode is entered, a Teacher will need to open the settings menu from the gear icon and either click Exit Kiosk Mode or Sign out. Both of these options will require the Teacher to sign in again. Once signed back in, SmartPass will return to the normal Teacher view
