This class covers a wide variety of topics regarding the use of the iPad appropriate for both beginner and intermediate level users. We will view how it can be used as a consumption device, a creation device, and an educational tool. This class requires that you have access to an iPad that is updated to the latest version of iOS. You will be creating an account to download apps, so while most are free, please be prepared to spend between $15 -30 on additional apps. You will need to have wireless access outside of school, as school filters may block some of the content covered in this class.
