The first term of this class will focus on the following topics: Apple ID information, email/contacts setup and etiquette, iCloud information, sharing documents with teachers, NMS iPad policy, digital etiquette, iOS updates, textbook apps and features, how to handle problems with the iPad, use of Reflector, proper settings on iPad for school use, and how to blog.
