Safari comes on the iPad but there are other browsers that can be downloaded. iChromy has tab browsing and will actually support some flash files. Another browser that seems to be even more supportive of flash is iSwifter. However, you must be 17 years old to download the app. iSwifter might be fine if you owned your own iPad - it allows you to play the facebook games, and run other flash files. But I don't believe we'll be using this with students as it does contain some mild adult content.
Adding a Bookmark
When you find a webpage you want to bookmark, click on the share icon at the top of the screen by the URL bar. Click on Add Bookmark.
You will be given some options as to where you want to save it. The page is automatically named for you but you can change it if necessary. Choose which folder you would like to save the bookmark. Now this is important because bookmarks can get away from you very easily.
Click on the bookmark icon beside the share button. Click the edit button. Safari came preloaded with folders already. Delete the ones you don't want by tapping the minus sign in the red circle and hitting the delete button that pops up.
Tap on New Folder so you can create your own bookmark folder. Give it a title. Now you're ready to save bookmarks in that folder.
Saving an Image
Do a google search for an image. Choose images in Google. Hold your finger on the image until a window appears. Choose Save Photo. The photo will then be saved in your Photos. (See video on the Photo's page.)
You can also copy the image and use it in a variety of apps, like Pages, Notes, Keynote, etc.
Creating a WebClip
This is pretty awesome. When you find a web page that you know you want your students to access, you can put a clip of it on the screen of your iPad. It will look kind of like an app but when students tap it, they will be directed to the website. At the site you want to clip, click on the square icon with the arrow on it and tap 'Add to Home Screen.' You'll now find it on your home screen!
Imagine searching for a topic and receiving a multimedia presentation. Well, you don't have to imagine anymore! Open the Qwiki app and enter a topic or simply choose a category listed in the app. My favorite category is Natural Wonders. Choose a topic and Qwiki will gather audio files, videos, maps, and photos. This browser is absolutely amazing!
