Well the journey has begun in earnest. I followed along and learned some hidden tips for the Iphone and also the Ipad. I decided to learn and try using both to really get the most out of both devices. I guess an old one can learn new things and have fun doing it.
The voice app was a good tip and I plan on doing more exploring on my own. The suggested sites will be helpful. I was just "getting by" with what I figured out as I needed to, but now I plan on making use of the features and hopefully will be able to assist some students.
