Byte-Sized Tech: iPad® Instruction Series

Anne Johnson

The Petoskey District Library is offering a series of six courses on iPad basics for new iPad users July through August. This class is geared towards people who would like a refresher or are just getting started with their iPad. The class will review different settings and features each week as well as offering time for questions and answers. Participants should bring their own iPad to the session, but are welcome to come just to watch. The sessions will be taught by Petoskey High School student, Anne Johnson, member of the Petoskey Paladins robotics team. It is not necessary to attend all courses, but the course content builds in complexity as the series progresses. All courses take place in the lower-level classroom of Petoskey District Library, Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m.

The schedule for the series is as follows: July 7: Basics – connecting to Wi-Fi, navigating the home screen and more; July 14: Submenus and digital books – navigating the submenus and downloading digital books; July 21: Safari – learn about the iPad’s web browser; July 28: App Store – navigating the application store; August 11: Email- set up and use email on your iPad; August 18: Calendars, contact and cameras – use three of the standard iPad apps.
