A Wonderful Wheel featuring iPad Apps for Autistic Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Wonderful Wheel featuring iPad Apps for Autistic Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Accessible learning | Scoop.it

"I must admit that apps for autistic learners are really scarce and hard to find. A few months ago I posted here a list some powerful apps for autism and today while I was looking for new apps that might have been created since the publication of that list I came across this wonderful wheel.

I know that the first thing that comes to mind when you see this wheel is the popular pedagogy Wheel created by Allan Carrington in which he provided suggestions for 62 apps based on Bloom's Taxonomy. The present wheel is developed by Mark Coppin in which he featured a wide variety of apps for autistic students."

Just found out my son is dyslexic and phonological awareness is a big deficiency - so we'll try this, although if it doesn't have some video game like entertainment then he might not be interested!
