The next few videos in the FTPL series will cover some skills that we have already looked at on the computer from the point of view of using them on the iPad. We begin with setting up Google Drive on your iPad.

Today I will be posting the next two videos in the FTPL series to make up for not having posted anything for the last few weeks due to various reasons. The videos provide you with a walk through of the main functions of Google Drive.
As always, remember that you can pause and rewind as often as you need to whilst watching.
If you have missed the previous articles in the FTPL series, you can find the first article here and the second article here.
I had planned to post video three in the Flipped Teacher Professional Learning today. Unfortunately I attempted to upgrade my PC to Windows Ten over the weekend, and not only did the upgrade fail, but so did the rollback, and my attempts to reinstall Windows Seven using my boot disc have not been successful thus far. So at this point in time I am not entirely sure when I will be able to get another FTPL uploaded and I had only pre-recorded two videos prior to the upgrade attempt.
My apologies for this, but I will work to get it back up and running as quickly as I am able to.
