Description

XYZs of iPhones and iPads: Intermediate Training for Librarians (one-day workshop for library and literacy staff and volunteers)

Learn how to take iPhone and iPad use in libraries to the next level with this fun, hands-on class. Move beyond the basics and make these handheld devices work for you. Learn more about iCloud, your personal assistant Siri, multitasking, and parental controls. Explore popular apps for library services and multimedia, including apps for photo, video, and e-book access. Discover the many useful accessibility features that increase iPhone and iPad functionality for those with hearing, vision, dexterity, and language challenges. The class will conclude with tips and tricks.

We will have ten (10) iPads available in class for hands-on use, though you may also Bring Your Own Device of an iPhone and/or iPad.

Class Prerequisite: Either basic familiarity using iPhones or iPads, or attendance in the one-day ABC’s of iPhones & iPads: Basic Training for Librarians class.

Amy Brandley, ODL trainer and Edge consultant, photographer, and former library director, will teach the class.

Travel stipend for overnight stay may be available if public library, library system, tribal library or literacy organization is 60 miles or more from ODL. Initial travel stipend paperwork must be returned to ODL before the class date. Contact Doris Dixon to request paperwork via email Doris.Dixon@libraries.ok.gov or phone (405) 522-3217. Stipend will be based on lodging receipt, up to $92. If lodging charges are less than $92, the contract will be written for the actual amount, not $92. Mileage also may be reimbursed at 30 cents/mile if you are paying for your own gas & cannot collect from your library/literacy organization. Stipend contracts will be made out to the library/literacy organization. It will be your responsibility to collect your reimbursement from such organization. No travel stipend contracts will be paid until the class has been attended and photocopied proof of overnight stay (if applicable) has been submitted to the Office of Library Development.

Classes made possible by funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Oklahoma Department of Libraries.
