Preview and download the course iPad Literacy 101 on iTunes U.

 

"The design of this course is to introduce teachers to using the iPad most efficiently. This course looks at iPad basic operations as well as advanced configurations and use as a teaching tool.  This course also outlines some key applications for use in the classroom. This course is geared toward 8-12 teachers and technology coordinators, but is applicable with some modifications for the junior-high grades. Many of the methods shown here are also usable by parents and students.  We will also look at some of the basic ways your iPad can be used as a teaching tool, consumption, creation and curation device. The iPad 101 course is designed by a teacher for teachers - to make them more efficient users of the device."

This iTunes U course is one of the best designed for teachers to get the most out of using an iPad in the classroom. There are some ideas in there I had not thought of, and it contains very useful guides. Might be a good thing to add to your list of holiday to-dos!
