Here are a few reminders on tasks that you should have completed by the end of today (Aug. 21). We want to make sure that we’re all on the same page as we enter our second week.

Before our next class on Tuesday, please do the following:
Create a Twitter account and send a welcome tweet that includes the hashtag #ipadjournos. Also start following our class feed @ipadjournos and your instructors @marcusmessner and @vivianmedina. Tweet at least once every day from Tuesday on (except weekends and holidays). For now tweet about news you find interesting and want to share with us as well as all things related to journalism.
Create a Facebook page. You can use your existing Facebook account and create the page from there. We will give additional instructions on Tuesday. Also “like” our class iPadJournos Facebook page (you can search for it). Also “like” the page Journalists on Facebook.
And last but not least: Explore your iPad. Have some fun with it!
