The iPad is very easy to learn to use. Even if you already have a personal iPhone or iPad or other similar smart phone or tablet device, there is always something new to learn about how the device functions.
Apple has created a really intuitive training guide that is in your iPad already. Open the iBooks app to begin reading the iPad Starter Guide from Apple.
You can also access this handy interactive Apple site to learn more basic information about iPads.
All APPS are loaded remotely on the teacher and the student iPads by the Mobile Device Manager in the Technology Department. If there is an app that you would like your students to use, please fill out a helpdesk ticket (http:helpdesk.ferrisisd.org). This must be done at least 3 days prior to needing it for your classroom.
