iPad Potential in the Classroom

Basic Finger Moves for the iPad - Multi-Touch Technology
  • Tap - just a gentle press will do
  • Drag - keep the tip of your finger pressed down on the glass and slide 2-Finger Drag - scrolls a window within a window
  • Flick - lightly and quickly move your finger up, down, left, or right to move the page etc. in the direction of your flick
  • Spread and Pinch - Use the thumb and index finger and spread apart to zoom in and pinch to zoom out
  • Double-Tap - Quick way to zoom in, or toggle between aspect ratios when watching a video

Multi-tasking Gestures iOS 5 +
4 or 5 finger multi-touch navigation gestures that complement the Home Button functions (which reduces the amount of times you need to single or double click Home)
  • Pinch all fingers in to exit an app and return to the Home Screen (same as single-clicking the Home Button)
  • 4 Finger Swipe up from the bottom to reveal the multitasking bar or Fast App Switcher Dock (Double-pressing Home Button does not work now in iOS 7)
  • Swipe sideways from left to right or right to left to move between recently open apps

NOTE: The Multitasking Gestures can be turned ON/OFF in the Settings > General

Dear David,

We appreciate your interest in our conference and realize that your insight would provide us with an excellent keynote. However, our committee has decided that we will not be able to include you in our conference this year.

mcTEC is an annual event and we would be pleased to keep you in mind for a possibility to work with you in the future.

Thanks so much again for your time and interest,
