  • We are Family How the iPad can Bridge the (Information) Generation Gap Presented by Melissa Kiser, Information Technology Librarian Allen County Public Library ACPL Library Camp September 23, 2010
  • Four generations
  • Four generations [Photo of my son] [Photo of my mom]
  • I am the link, especially between these two. [Photo of my son] [Photo of my mom]
  • My mom lives in Lexington, Kentucky, which is 4-5 hours away
  • I post things on Facebook every day. We just had a family reunion in August and a lot of pictures were taken.
  • I want to share these things with my mom, BUT…
    • I don’t have a photo printer
    • If I printed at work I would need to mail it
    • I don’t have stamps anymore because I pay my bills online
    • I could order prints and send them to her home but that could get kind of expensive
    • E-mailing them would be so much easier and quicker
    • Not every photo is print-worthy, if you know what I mean!
  • We do things differently
  •  
  • The present is a present
  • I repeat: I want to share these things with my mom. More than anything, sometimes! [photo of my son]
  • iPad to the Rescue!
  • iPad is like a TV
  • iPad is more than a TV

  • What does an iPad require?
