This is the training presentation I made for my teachers on the basics of their iPad. The teachers had had their ipads for a week before I gave them the basics training. I think that was a really good plan because the teachers were ready to learn how to use their ipads effectively. They had been using their ipads, but showing them the shortcuts helped them immensely! I don’t think the teachers would have been ready for the basics training the same day they got their ipads they would not have been focused on the training. HERE is a handout I gave the teachers that goes along with the presentation.
One of the most pressing questions from the teachers was, “How do I use pinterest!”. I am not a huge fan of the pinterest app so I use pinterest in safari. I also found a website that gives directions on how to add a “pin it” button to your iPad safari browser. Also, along those same lines, after I showed the teachers about Evernote in our productivity training (I will post that later), they wanted an Evernote Clipper on their safari and I found a website that gave those instructions as well.
