Using the iPad is as easy as swiping and tapping. Generally, no instructions are needed for using the iPad. It's just a matter of swiping and tapping but there are a number of tips and tricks and little hidden features that make using the iPad more efficient for you and more productive. If I tap the Safari browser app, it brings up this page Wikipedia. It's a very long page. As I scroll, I see it goes on and on. If I want to quickly get to the top of that browser page, I tap the black bar at the top.

To get back to my Home screen, I simply click once. If I double-click on the Home button, it reveals my multitasking bar that shows the most recently opened apps that I've used. By swiping all the way to the right I can get to my secret music controls, and control the music from here. On the outside edge of the iPad, is a button for doing volume up and down, but there's another little button that will mute sound and turn it back on. Since there already are controls for doing the music on the outside, it sometimes helps to go into your settings.

I'm moving to the left, tap on your Settings. And in Settings, you'll see that the default is to ship with mute on. But I want to use the side switch for locking my rotation for when I'm doing presentations or showing things in class. So I will tap on lock rotation. Now if I double-click on my Home button, and swipe all the way to the right, you'll see that the button at the bottom for sound can be toggled off and on here, and that the button on the outside now controls rotation.

To get back to the home screen, tap once on the Home button. And to use Spotlight Search, because often an iPad can get quite full of apps, you can type in any word or app name, and it will bring it up in its search engine. In this case, I typed in Safari. But I could type in easily another word like gestalt and search the web for that. So it's a multipurpose search engine right there on your iPad. Safari opens and shows me the list of its search for gestalt. If I tap once on the Home button, I go back to my Home screen. If I hold down the Home button and the On/Off button simultaneously, I can take a screenshot of whatsoever on my iPad.

You'll see a slight flash. If I tap Photos You'll see now inside my photo gallery I have the image that was on my iPad before then. All of these are general purpose tips and tricks that everyone of your students should know for working quickly and fast inside of the iPad.
