A great feature of the iPad are the easy to access apps on your home screen.  Creating your own buttons allows you to jump to any website you choose quickly.  Instead of bookmarking sites you visit everyday you can create a one tap button for your home screen.

1. Type in your favorite website (
2. Press the bookmark button
3. Choose “Add to Home Screen”

4. Type in the name you want to appear next to icon

You’re now one tap away from your favorite websites!

If your students frequently access websites (ex. periodic assessments) this is a great way to simplify the process.
