The little icons in your ipod or ipad's home screen can launch apps, or link to websites. Adding your website icon is a huge timesaver. Most teachers prefer adding homescreen app icons, so students don't have to spend time typing in web addresses they use often. To do this:
1. Browse to the site you wish to bookmark/create homescreen icon for.
2. Once there, tap the actions button at the bottom middle (or plus sign if it's an older model ipod touch).

4.The next screen that appears may vary slightly, depending on your model of ipod/ipad. Choose the option you want. In this case, you want to choose 'add to home screen.'

5. You'll be able to name this new home screen icon and, of course, drag it to a preferred location!
