In this session we will walk you through the complete process of a student multimedia project. From the planning, research, writing, creating, editing and sharing. All will be done on the iPad…well almost : )
Note: This page is a resource for anyone who wishes to use it. You can share it with your students and alter items to meet your needs.

Research and Planning
- Evernote is a great tool for research, but there is not a free web clipper option for the Evernote app on the iPad. There is a work around that will allow a user to clip web pages on the iPad just as they would on a computer. This may not be appropriate for younger children but it is a viable option for high school students.

You can create a picture of anything displayed on the iPad screen, no matter which app or website you have open, by taking a screenshot. The screenshot is automatically saved in the Photos/Camera Roll.
To capture a screenshot
- Press and hold the Menu button (a.k.a. Home button, the main button below the screen).
- While the menu button is held down, press the power/lock button (the switch on the top edge of the device).
- You will hear a camera shutter sound and the screen will be saved in your Camera Roll.
It’s often hard to find the true owner of a web image so when possible use free or copyright free images. Here are several resources to help you get started. A more extensive search I’m sure will reveal more:
Audio and Music
- How to add and use audio/music on the iPad
- Supplemental Content
- Archive.org – Internet Archive containing music, video, and audio that can be used in student projects. Includes wonderful speeches and texts as well.
