Many people with iPads know the basics but are reluctant to try anything new, or don't know where to go next. 


Instead of a set course structure, each week the participants suggest topics to discuss, new things they'd like to learn, we work through problems, as well as covering topics the tutor thinks will be helpful to the participants. This might include subjects such as:

  • connecting to & exploring the internet safely

  • exploring iPad & app settings

  • taking, editing & viewing photos & videos

  • keeping in touch with friends & family

  • downloading & using apps

  • calendar & contacts

  • emails

  • e-books & audio books
