• Buying an External Keyboard for the iPad 
    The iPad has a built-in virtual keyboard that students may use by typing on the screen. If a parent is choosing to have his or her child take the iPad home and would like to purchase an external keyboard for ease of typing, there are many choices available (either wired versions which are physically connected to the device or wireless keyboards which use Bluetooth to connect to the iPad). When researching these options, make sure to read manufacturer specifications and customer reviews carefully to ensure that the keyboard is iPad-compatible.
