I  came across this wonderful resource while I was sifting through my Twitter feeds and wanted to share it with you here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. "iPad 101: The Basics" is created by Steve Lai from Teaching with iPad. Steve has always impressed me with the great work he does in his blog and I always look forward to read his posts.
