You need to keep the MISD case, but you can add an external bluetooth keyboard!
We’ve fielded a few questions about keyboards. Many students and staff members are happy with the on-screen keyboard. Others would like to know where to buy an external keyboard to use with their MISD-issued iPads. There are many cases with integrated keyboards, and some look very nice. However, the Griffin Survivor case on each MISD-issued iPad needs to remain in place because of the protection that it provides.
Here are a couple of options for external keyboards along with links that you can use to learn more about them.
