iPad/iPod training presentation

Now that we have concluded our final iPad/iPod training session, here is a copy of the presentation that has been updated with more information about iCloud.  If you would like to explore further, don' t forget that you can learn more about any and all of the items we talked about  in Atomic Learning or by viewing the tutorials that are usually included with any app(lication) that peaks your interest. Also, remember that the Ed Tech page with the list of approved apps is merely a listing of apps with brief descriptions.  You can't actually download apps directly from that page so it would be a good idea to have your iTunes page up at the same time so you can just flip back over to it if you find a hot app that you want NOW :)

Renae van Zeelst
Nobody’s tool
Just acting the tool
On a tool’s errand
Living in a tool’s paradise
Someone stop me.
I pity the tool!
Can’t help myself.
Tool me once, shame on you, tool me twice…
Experience is the teacher of tools
Tools rush in
A tool and his money are soon parted
Done.

They're coming....

Hey Toolers - The "initial" device that you are to receive from your classroom device package will be arriving Monday February 13. At some point that afternoon (probably no sooner than 6th period) you will get to pick it up. More details to follow but rest assured...they're coming!
