I have updated my guide for iMovie on the iPad. iMovie on the iPad is in many ways a significantly better application than its much larger cousin on the Apple Mac.
I gave the guide for Pages a bit of a spruce up and I have uploaded the latest version to this web site. It covers just about everything you may need to know. Pages is quite a good app and if Apple only allowed users to access DropBox for the sharing of files it would(…)
Created a guide for Keynote on the iPad. It is quite comprehensive and covers just about all the features of the app.

Trendsetters, let me share something with you. There are two loves in my education technology life at the moment. WordPress and the iPad. I think the three of us together would make a lovely couple, of sorts. But, there is a problem. Worpdress does not play nice with the iPad. Or, perhaps the other way(…)
