Feature: Reading Quickly and Efficiently Online | UKEdChat.com | AdLit | Scoop.it

Sometimes it can feel that you are overwhelmed with the amount of reading that is on your ‘ToDo’ list – articles you have saved to read later online; all the fantastic articles to read on UKEdChat.com (!); research articles; news articles – it can sometime seem like a never ending list. Many people still struggle reading longer texts online as it can be inefficient so therefore do not fully engage and persist with such articles.

Education Apps For All

Education Apps For All | AdLit | Scoop.it

While research overwhelmingly shows evidence that children benefit from receiving education in their first language, there is a shocking absence of digital tools for education in languages other than English.
On September 8th 2012, iLearn4Free is launching Education Apps for All, a challenge to encourage developers to work together to create apps in a variety of languages that target the elementary education level using Art4Apps.org free resource library.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, April 27, 2013 2:51 PM

Mr. Borman surveyed 17 students in one of his classes and discovered that there were a few needs when it came to reading comprehension. He has put together "A Toolbox of Reading Comprehension Apps" that can support the needs of his students in his UDL classroom.  For each app, he has outlined "What it does", "How students can use it" and the "UDL Principles".

 

Check out the Toolbox:

> iBooks

> Popplet

> SyncSpace

> Odyssey (by Homer)

> Toontastic

> Explain Everything

> Ulysses

> Subtext

> Prezi

 

Thank you Mr. Borman!

Jane Strunck's curator insight, April 29, 2013 11:11 AM

Mr. Borman used Edmodo to survey his student's learning preferences and based on the results, identified apps that would support reading comprehension and promote UDL in his classroom.  Would love to know how students responded to the options.  Nice process, Mr. Borman!

 In schools across Australia there is strong support for linking learning in Technologies with learning literacy skills. Learning in Technologies places a high priority on accurate and unambiguous communication (ACARA, 2013).Implementing digital technologies in learning areas such as English allows special education teachers to facilitate and accommodate the learning needs of students. This is achieved through integrating assistive devices such as the iPad and its applications to develop critical literacy skills needed in the 21st century.  Consequently special education teacher have a better opportunity to develop important General capabilities such as literacy (LIT) to allows student to become literate as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating in and out of school and for participating effectively in society (ACARA, 2013).

 

 

This website suggests various applications that can be used on the ipad to assist special needs students. The list of  applications were selected to improve and develop students reading, writing and spelling. They engage the students through making the activities, fun and engaging, which I think is important when teaching special needs students.
