Section 1 is a primer, serving as a overview for newer iPad users. This section includes what is in the box, apps that come loaded on the iPad, and other considerations as you begin exploration of the iPad as an instructional and resource tool. Also included in this section is a discussion about locating and downloading apps, and selecting accessories to help increase effectiveness and efficiency of iPad use. Since photography is integrated into many of the apps and accessories, the first section also covers tips to help take great iPad photos and video, and a host of support resources such as infographics, podcasts, curation tools. iBooks, and more.

Featured in the Section 2 are 30 apps specific to physical education, health and fitness. Apps in this section that maximize the iPad’s capabilities are Geocaching, Yoga Studio, and 4D Anatomy. Geocaching is an outdoor digital scavenger hunt that uses GPS to help move about and find a hidden cache. Yoga Studio makes use of audio and video to demonstrate and project various poses that may be used to create a fitness workout. Finally, 4D Anatomy uses the iPad’s camera and augmented reality (really cool) technology to explore the human body. These and the other apps included in section two are educational and engaging.

Section 3 highlights 30 apps selected to enhance both personal and professional productivity. These apps are designed for process over content. Examples from this section include apps such as Qrafter Pro, Tellagami, and Scoop.it. Qrafter Pro provides the tools to quickly and easily generate QR codes that take users to selected multimedia files. Tellagami creates original avatars that may be attached to websites and emails to deliver an animated and personalized message. Scoop.it provides users with a platform to search, develop, curate, and share a creative content stream on a topic of interest. The apps in this section take the function of the iPad to a whole new level.

Finally, Section 4 is a showcase of some of the finest iPad accessories, partner websites, and desktop apps available. Connect the iPad wirelessly to Apple TV, and project the screen and audio to a projector for all to see and hear. Use the Wi-Fi Internet connection to share and track leaderboard results from Kahoot questions, as the audience responds from their smart devices. Use the iPad with Swivl and you have a robotic device that captures video and wireless audio as it rotates 360º with a capture range of 33 feet. These examples and others created to expand the functionality of the iPad are found in the final section of this book.

A difference between iPad Resources for Physical Education, Health & Fitness and most other books, is that this book isn’t designed to be read cover to cover. Go to the table of contents and select the section that is of greatest interest to you (The Transformational iPad / Physical Education, Health & Fitness Apps / Productivity Apps / iPad Accessories & More). Next, select the section, app, or accessory that catches your attention and read on to learn more. You’ll find a summary, features, screenshots and an overview of page navigation. It you’re still interested, roll up your sleeves and give it a try.
