We know the iPad is a “cool” device with many awesome features and capabilities, however, most owners take it out of the box, turn it on, and start downloading apps, unaware of the features that really make the iPad an effective learning device to support educators and learners. Our local intermediate school district, OAISD, is hosting a training to help you understand this powerful tech tool.
If you have an IPAD, please bring this to the session –we will not have any to loan during the training.
This session will teach you all about your device:
• iPad Background
• The Basics (Spotlight, Keyboard, Multitasking, Folders/Categories)
• Understanding and changing the settings to meet your needs
• Accessibility features
• VoiceOver/Speak Selection
• Standard apps that come already loaded
Additionally, this session will include
• Effective methods and resources for locating apps for your specific role
• Effective methods and resources for locating apps for student needs
• Effective methods and resources for locating apps for meeting educational goals
• Hands on exploration of common apps for productivity and education
• Collaboration with others in the session for sharing ideas and strategies for use and implementation
