iPad tips and tricks

The library department here decided to invest in tech for the library media specialists.  We have had iPads for 2.5 years.  I have only had mine for 1.5.  While I like it and find it very useful, personally, i have found it to be of limited use with students.  The big issue for me is not having airserver or apple tv in the library.  Our students are not 1-1 yet, so it hasn't been a big issue, but one that needs to be delt with in the next year.  
As I watched the iPad tips video, I realized that I have been ignoring the two menus from the top and bottom of the screen.  I looked more closely at them just now and see that there are several features that I will use.  I was especially was happy to see the camera and volume controls. It will be much easier to get the camera ready using the menus rather than scrolling to the folder and opening it and then the camera.  There is always more to learn.
