I was just going to say that I would welcome any suggestions/offers for help. I'm not a high tech person, but I'm not stone age, either. I need to watch some youtube tutorials because the 1-hour training we got basically told us how to change the wallpaper and recharge it. I am probably the best at our school's computer grading system and I learned very quickly when I went to grad school after never having been on a computer and then had to submit everything that way... in the age of floppy disks. So I'm fairly intuitive and have the ability to comprehend things quickly, but I don't have a smart phone or any other similar device. I don't know how to get apps or know what to look for. So PLEASE PM ME if you want to help. Probably shouldn't bog down this thread too much. The iPad is mine to use however I want until I leave the system (retire/let go).
Ellen - I would welcome any pointers/recommendations for teacher apps!
Count your blessings!
How cool!!! What I love is that you learn about these things by just sitting around playing with them, with a basic little lesson/hint here and there. I crab about them not issuing owners manuals anymore, but usually do about as well without one, since I rarely read them anyway.

I know - anything that involves typing, I'd rather do on a real computer. We mainly need them for the new teacher evaluation process we're starting this year. They already loaded a couple dozen apps including Ted Talks, which I LOVE.
Count your blessings!
Did anyone else notice a change in the tool bar on their Outlook Express today? Mine suddenly changed to an odd looking thing that does nothing to help. Why do they they do this. It was fine the way it was. lol
