Saturday, 3 March 2018 - 10:00am

Struggling to keep up with all the latest technology? Not sure where to start? Our 'Introduction to the iPad' workshops are the perfect first step.

If you have your own iPad and want to start at the beginning bring it along. If you don't, borrow one of ours for free to get a taste and learn some skills that will open up a whole new world of information, entertainment and tools.

Participants book in to a 3 week block:
March 3: Session 1 focuses on navigating the iPad. Learn to turn it on and off, understand sleep, silent and night modes and set up your home screen. Learn how to use the touch screen and what the different swiping gestures do.

March 10: In Session 2 we will get online via a wi-fi internet connection. Learn about Safari, Apple's internet browser and discover some helpful tips for finding the information you need online and evaluating the reliability of the information you find.

March 17: In Session 3 we will discover apps, programs designed specifically to run on an iPad device. We will connect to the app store, discover and download an app that will allow us to access online magazines and talking books from the library's collection straight on the iPad.

Each session runs from 10:00am - 12:00pm.

For those wishing to go further, the library is offering monthly forums on a range of iPad topics including Facebook for your iPad, Videocalling on iPad and Entertainment on you iPad.
