This presentation has been designed to provide teachers with the basics on how to start out with their iPad.

iPad basics

  1. 1. On/off Switch Volume + Volume - Home 1. Get to know the buttons
  2. 2. 2. Familiarise yourself with the keyboard. 3. To type numbers press this key:
  3. 3. 4. To take a screen capture press the home button and the on/off button at the same time. A screen shot will be saved to your photo library. 5. Create an account with the app store in order to download apps. 6. Do NOT use any type of cleaning product on the screen. Use a lint free cloth to clean your iPad.
  4. 4. 7. To delete an app, touch and hold on an app, the app will shake and an x will appear on the top left hand corner of the app, touch the x to delete the app. Remember if you buy an app and then delete it you can always download it without having to pay a second time using your account.
  5. 5. 8. You can exit an app by clicking on the home key or by placing 5 fingers on the iPad using an open hand and then pinching. The app will close but it hasn’t been shut down. To shut down an app, double click on the home key, this will bring up open apps in a row. Touch and hold an app, a red minus sign will appear, touch the red minus to shut down the app.
  6. 6. 9. To adjust the brightness of your screen, double click on the home key, slide the task tray to the right and then adjust the brightness.
  7. 7. 10. To connect to Wifi: a) Go to settings, Wifi b) Choose your Network c) Type in your password
  8. 8. 11. What web browser should you use? Firstly, a web browser is a program (or app) that connects and displays information that exists on the Internet. Unlike a PC or laptop, an iPad doesn’t display everything that can be accessed on the web (ie you can’t access most flash content). Safari is Apple’s web browser that is installed on every Apple computer and mobile device. I recommend that you stay with Safari initially and then explore other web browsers (ie Chrome) as you become more confident.
  9. 9. 12. When you buy an iPad you pay for the amount of storage (GB) that your device can hold. To check how much storage you have used go to settings, general and usage.
  10. 10. 13. You can use many different ways to get your data (ie photos/videos) off your iPad. Below I have listed 3 basic ways but there are other options available: a) Use your iPad charger; Connect the charger to your ipad, remove the end part that you plug into the wall, revealing a USB outlet and then plug it into your computer.
  11. 11. b) Email the photos/video files to yourself as an attachment. c) Create a Dropbox account and send your images/videos to your Dropbox. You will then be able to access them on any device.
