Welcome to the iPad Preseason for Students
Although you have used computers and other pieces of technology in the classroom practically since you started school, the iPad is an extraordinary learning tool. On the iPad you can read, write, paint, draw, take pictures and videos, record sounds, communicate, collaborate, manipulate data, and access a world of resources. And, no less importantly, when not needed, it can be easily put aside, sliding into a desk like a pencil.
The following pages will give you a solid introduction to the iPad, both how it functions and how it can be utilized as a learning tool. No extensive manual is needed to use the iPad. Its basic functions are simple and straightforward, which is one reason it has inspired so many apps. If you do encounter problems, however, your teachers, along with our Technology staff, are available to help you through them.
Because this is a powerful and expensive piece of equipment, it must be well cared for. This guide will help you keep it in good working order and help you deal with any issues that arise.
Enjoy your iPad!
