I am also super excited to announce that I have partnered with the Lakeville Heritage Center and the Burnsville Senior Center to offer something I call iPad Group!

iPad Group will meet once a month at both the Lakeville Heritage Center (1st Thursday of the month) and the Burnsville Senior Center (3rd Monday of the month).

Here is the description for iPad Group:

There is so much you can do with your iPad or iPad mini! With over 275,000 apps available, it can be hard to know where to start! Once a month during iPad Group, we will discuss a topic and Mike Pahl will share apps and other tips and tricks related to that month’s topic. This is more than a class though, it is a chance for you to share your knowledge with the class as well. The time during iPad Group will be split between discussing that month’s topic along with some time at the end to get your iPad questions answered!

The topics for the Winter & Spring are:

January - Travel
February - Reading
March - Games
April - Music
May - Video

This "class" isn't really a class at all. There is no curriculum. Instead you are encouraged to bring your iPad and a list of your questions and Apple expert Mike Pahl will answer them. Everyone attending this "class" will have a chance to ask questions about the iPad and we can all learn from each other. Bring iPad to class.
