Apple is making sure new iPad owners know all about the tablet’s new tricks with its series of educational how-to videos that keep coming out with updates.

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s new how-to videos, Apple has published a new video showing how to use Apple Pencil on the new iPad to draw handwritten notes in the Notes app. With the new cheap iPad, now students can write and sketch as they follow along in class. Handwritten notes are also searchable.

Watch and learn:

Apple unveiled a new iPad at an event last month. The 9.7-inch iPad costs $299 for students and teacher. Everyone else has to pay $329. The cheaper tablet comes with Apple Pencil support.

The event also featured a bunch of new software from Apple, including a new Schoolwork app that makes it easier for teachers to give assignments, communicate with students, track progress and more. Updates were also added for iWork with Smart Annotation support.
