Cool Presentations!

I can understand the differences between the North and South during the Antebellum U.S.

“I use my iPad as a tool to share with others.”

In Social Studies we had to choose a project to do to comparison of the North and the South during the Antebellum U.S. and I chose to make a travel brochure in Keynote. By using Keynote I was able to make it look cool by having transitions between the slides and having the ability to insert pictures. In the app you can also change the style of the text (make it have bullet points, be bold, have italics, etc…) and choose a theme.

A Great Novel for All Techies to Enjoy

Hello! I have been reading a great series for anyone who likes action and mystery with a lot of cool gadgets. S.T.O.R.M., By E. L. Young, is a five book series that is a lot of fun to read. They are not hard to understand and can be very funny. I would recommend this to anyone.

If Your Apps Freeze…

I can restart an app.

“I use my iPad as a learning device.”

If your apps freeze, this tip should sometimes work for you. If it does not, it is usually a problem with the app. When an app freezes up, you should double click the home button and swipe up on the app. This will refresh the app most of the time.

Studying on your iPad

I can use my iPad as a studying device.

“I use my iPad as a studying device.”

Do you ever forget your flashcards at school or forget to bring something that you need to study home? If you do, then you can follow these easy steps before you go home and it only takes a few minutes (depending on how much you have to study!). Go onto your home screen and find the app iCardSort. Open it up and a smiley face should pop up and it should be made out of cards. You don’t need to do anything with that, it tells you how to do things a little bit. On the side on the top left hand corner, there should be a thing that says “Decks”. Click on that and then click on the plus sign in the top left hand corner. Once you do that, name your deck. After you name your deck, double click the screen and it creates a card and allows you to edit the text. Just like you did with the name of the deck, write what you want it to say and then add any notes you want (like the answer). When you are done, click the wood background and that screen should go down. If you want to edit it again or view the answer, double click the card. Keep doing that to make the flashcards you need to study!

Great Note Taking

I can use Notability successfully.

“I use my iPad as a note taker.”

Notability is a great note taker for really any subject you are in. It is easy to organize in this app because you can basically do anything (add pics, audio, text, folders). Also, if you don’t like typing everything you do, there is also an option in Notability were you can write everything you do with your finger.

How to Save Battery Life

I can save battery life on my iPad.

“I use my iPad as a computer/tool.”

If your battery is running at like 20% you can turn down your brightness by scrolling up on the bottom of your screen and turning the brightness down.

In “Settings”, you can turn on airplane mode. If you turn airplane mode on, it will turn your WiFi off but, when you need it again, just turn airplane mode off. This tip really help me when I have low battery.
