Great info! I wish it was for the tablet we got at Christmas! Guess we’ll have to look up the manual on-line for the ASUS tablet…

Hi Esther Joy, I’ve heard good things about the ASUS tablet but haven’t used it myself. The nice thing is that almost all manuals for computers AND appliances are online. Such a blessing. I haven’t tested these but ASUS has a forum for users – http://vip.asus.com/forum/ and here’s a link to another ASUS forum for it that might be helpful as well – http://www.transformerforums.com/forum/forum.php :) My best suggestion for any new technology – stick a game on there that you or those you are teaching might like and let them play. It’s amazing how much you learn playing a game. Unfortunately, my mom doesn’t like to play games so we are sticking with the photos and learning that way :) Have fun with it!
