Hi! I'm Andy Brovey. I've been helping educators make sense and make use of computer technology for 30 years. In 2007, Apple Inc. recognized my work and named me an Apple Distinguished Educator.

It's hard to believe it was 10 years ago when Steve Jobs first announced the new Apple tablet computer called the iPad. A few months later, I got my first iPad and created the iPad Academy website to help others learn more about Apple's marvelous tablet. Since then, Apple has sold over 375 million iPads in 15 different versions. This means there are millions of old models still in circulation. Most of them still usable. This course will show you how to make the most of that old iPad.
