Sometimes, we take so much for granted, like knowing how to open apps on Apple mobile devices and that using an iPod, iPhone or iPad is very similar.  Recently, we were teaching a group of people how to use an iPod and then we were explaining how to use the iPad.   It was more difficult for the generation of people who did not grow up using these devices and were not exposed to their many uses. After playing with both the iPad and the iPod at our demo table and getting over their initial fear of the “unknown”, they were quite impressed with how intuitive Apple has created them. One of them eventually inquired about manuals for the devices.  I am including a link for manuals at the Apple Support site.

 At the touch of your fingers, you can automatically create documents and send them by email or even AirPrint them or share what you are working on in the classroom with an overhead projector and even use AirPlay  to display pictures and video you took with your Apple mobile device.  Some long time users still do not know everything that their Apple device is capable of like AirPrint or Airplay. Below are links to learn how easy these are.
