iPad can print wirelessly to AirPrint-enabled printers.

An AirPrint-enabled printer doesn’t require printer software; it just needs to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as iPad. If you’re not sure whether your printer is AirPrint-enabled, refer to its documentation.

For more information about AirPrint, go to support.apple.com/kb/HT4356.

Other suggestions for printing:

Have students place documents in Dropbox or Google Drive. Use lab computers for students to log in and access their Dropbox or Google drive accounts and print from there.

Cleaning the iPad

To clean iPad, unplug all cables and turn off iPad (press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears, then slide the onscreen slider). Use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Avoid getting moisture in openings. Don’t use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean iPad. The iPad screen has an oleophobic coating; simply wipe the screen with a soft, lint-free cloth to remove oil left by your hands. The ability of this coating to repel oil will diminish over time with normal usage, and rubbing the screen with an abrasive material will further diminish its effect and may scratch your screen.
