Teaching Kids with iPads - Part 3 of 5

#edtech #ipaded #mlearning

Every day we start with about 30 minutes of iPad training -- which is really the nuts and bolts of the Boot Camp. We felt is was important that the students know how to use their iPads like a pro. I don't want them to go home at the end of this week and know how to film and edit movies but don't know how to create folders.
 
Here is a breakdown of what we cover everyday...
 
Monday:
- set up and get on our wireless
- app check (all needed apps)
- set up Gmail account
- set up PogoPlug account
- set up Cinch account
- set up 360 Panorama account
- make new note called Timmy S. Reflection Questions and email the note to me
- take photos (metering)
- photo booth self photo
- downloading photos from websites
- email photos to me
 
Tuesday:
- create folders
- access all running apps
- orientation lock or mute
- quick volume mute
- airplay
- looking at PDFs
- iBooks (download samples from PogoPlug)
- Safari (zooming, quick to top, bookmarks)
 
Wednesday:
- take an screenshot
- turning off your iPad (really turn it off)
- avoiding underpowered USB docks
- use multitasking gestures
- printing with your iPad
- set up Toontastic Toontube account
- keeping apps up to date
 
Thursday:
- copy and paste
- hidden apostrophe and quotes
- add a period with double-space
- how to split and move the keyboards
- street view on maps
- directions on maps
 
Friday:

As you can see, on Friday we will remove the new accounts that we set up on the student's iPads.
