Your child is your best teacher to show you how we use the iPad for learning. This is a perfect opportunity for your child to show off too, so ask lots of questions and let your child take charge. I encourage you to enjoy this time together.
I put together a brief tutorial of iTunes U to help you understand how your child gets homework, turns in homework, communicates with other students in class discussions, and receives feedback. Mrs. Halderson and I create iTunes U courses and this is how we deliver content to our students.
