The Safari app on the iPad has many features that are helpful for searching, finding and archiving information that you're researching and coming to again and again in your class. Let's tap on the Safari app. There's a feature called Lazy Search. Instead of typing the entire address, like Apple.com, you can simply type the word apple. Then tap on Go. And there you are, you are at the Apple.com site. Now let's take a look at a website, the Roux Academy.com. We're going to type in, just simply Roux Academy.

Browsing the web with Safari

The Safari app on the iPad has many features that are helpful for searching, finding and archiving information that you're researching and coming to again and again in your class. Let's tap on the Safari app. There's a feature called Lazy Search. Instead of typing the entire address, like Apple.com, you can simply type the word apple. Then tap on Go. And there you are, you are at the Apple.com site. Now let's take a look at a website, the Roux Academy.com. We're going to type in, just simply Roux Academy.

If we tap and hold on any of the links, a pop-up window appears that allows us to open this link, to open in a new tab, add to a reading list or copy. Now let's try the same technique by tapping on an image. Let's go to the apple. As you can see, we can save an image or copy that image. If we save the image, it will appear in the Camera Roll. To zoom, double tap and you will fill the whole page. To zoom out, double tap the page again to return to the original size. Now we're going to switch over to one of my Wikispaces.com classes. This is Art 158, where I teach JavaScript, this is the home page. Tap on the Share button that looks like a rectangle with an arrow. I usually have my students do this, I have them add it to the Home screen. They'll be using this Wiki space and this Home page for all of their projects, for all their materials and for their syllabus and course materials. By clicking on Add To Home, giving my icon a name, I can add this icon to the iPad home screen.

Now my students don't have to remember the URL and can come again and again to the landing page for this course. Another great feature is how to find things on page. If I go into the search box and type in the word art and then scroll to the bottom of the popup box I see there's a feature called, On This Page. That's only looking for the word art, not looking for a website. Now, at the bottom of the browser, there are left and right arrows. You can see that I've found two matches, and when I'm done, I can tap on the done button.

If I want to do another search for the word syllabus, as soon as you type that word you have the popup window that I showed you before. And if you scroll to the bottom of that you'll see, find this word but you've also brought up the keyboard. At the top of the keyboard you'll now see a special thing called Find on Page. You can type any word that you want to search for on the webpage and quickly scan that content. And see if there's anything pertinent to what you're looking for in your research.

Once done, tap on the Done button and you'll go back to the browser. Finally, there's a feature I like a lot called Reading List. Many of us are looking and researching and scanning through many, many websites, but with the reading list, you can add this list or add an article. So let's tap on the Share button, and tap on Add to Reading List. And then if we tap on the book icon at the top, then tap on the glasses. What appears in the list is all recently saved web pages that you'd like to come back and revisit. This works with PDF, and it also works with URLs. This is a great way to quickly go through a lot of information, and then at your leisure go back and read and study what you have saved. Using the Safari browser, in the iPad, is a great way to do research, to sort through content, and to archive those things you wish to keep for a later date. Students and teachers alike use it daily.
