Organizing Notability

I can organize my notes in Notability.

“I use my iPad as a note taking device.”

To organize your notes that you have in Notability, first you need to create a folder for your notes (Ex: Social Studies). If you have notes for Social Studies already, then hold down on that note. Then, drag the note over to the folder that you made. It will go into that folder and then you can add more notes into that folder. You can also make folders for other subjects like science, writing, etc.

Navigation of your iPad

I can navigate my iPad better.

“I use my iPad as a learning tool.”

Here are some tips to navigating your iPad:

  1. Using all 5 of your fingers place them on your iPad when in an app you can close it by bringing them together towards the center of your screen.
  2. You can also split your keyboard with 2 fingers going in the opposite direction.

I can take a screenshot with my iPad.

“I use my iPad as instructed.”

If you press the home and off button at the same time the iPad will take a screenshot.  It saves your picture to your camera roll.

Keyboard Shortcut

I can create a keyboard shortcut.

“I use my iPad as a tool.”

Are you tired of rewriting your username?  Then go to “Settings”, then go to “General”, and then “Keyboards”. Look for “Shortcuts”, and click “Add New Shortcut”. Click “Phrase” and type in your real username and in “Shortcut” do a little part of the username or something you can remember.  Now, when you type that shortcut, it will be replaced with the phrase that you entered.  Make sure to make your shortcut unique so that it doesn’t autocorrect you when you are typing common words.


Option for an iPad Assignment Notebook

I can use my iPad as an assignment notebook.

“I use my iPad as an assignment notebook.”

Would you like to us your iPad as an assignment notebook? If yes, continue reading. If no, there is no need to continue.  Go to the “Reminders” app. It looks like a lined paper with colored circles on the side. On the left bottom corner, there is an “add list” button.  Press the button and name it “Assignment notebook,” then you may choose a color.  You can click on the lines on the lined paper, and you can type in a homework assignment.  Click the circled “i” and it is a good idea to put “!”, “!!”, or “!!!” next to it. If you click “remind me on a day,” you can change it to daily so it will remind you every day. To stop it when you’ve finished that homework, either delete it or press the colored circle to fill it in, meaning it has been done.
