Little Digits | Apps For Children with Special Needs

Little Digits | Apps For Children with Special Needs | Special Educator | Scoop.it

Little Digits is a fun educational app that teaches children about numbers by putting a new spin on finger counting.

Using the iPad multi-touch screen, Little Digits displays number characters by detecting how many fingers you put down. Children can learn to associate the number on the screen with the number of fingers they place down, whilst enjoying the unique characters and animations of the Little Digits world.

There are also games that introduce small addition and subtraction calculations, where you can work out the answer using the same multi-touch finger detection.

This is an app that will grow with your child’s numerical understanding. Not only can they discover numbers through initial independent play, you can also play collaboratively with your child, each putting fingers down to count and work out calculations together. Then when your child is ready, they can work out the answers for themselves, using their own little digits!

Give them the building blocks of reading with the interactive app that teaches your little reader more than 200 different words.

New from the makers of AlphaTots, Gappy’s First Words is the perfect adventure for pint-sized learners just beginning to read. From dusty deserts to distant planets, Gappy has wandered far from home, and it’s their job to help him make it back, spelling words to span the gaps along the way.

There are four different worlds for young players to explore, and with each one they conquer, they’ll earn the parts they need to redesign Gappy’s house. From a cozy cabin, to a mushroom house, to a castle with a gingerbread roof, there are over 700 creative combinations they can make in the game designed to give your little reader a big head start on the books they’ll love for life.

6 Apps You Should Be Using with Evernote ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Special Educator | Scoop.it

"Evernote is definitely one of the apps I use everyday. It helps me stay organized and scales up my productivity. However, the app has even more to offer when used with other partner apps. These apps  are particularly useful in expanding Evernote functionality  and in providing you with a richer and organized experience."

Lou Salza's curator insight, June 1, 2013 5:02 PM

I started using Evernote for storing notes from meetings so I could retrieve them on any device at any location.  It is searchable and does way more than keep notes stored and accessible. This site will lead you to excellent explanations of Evernote and its functionality. It can be particularly useful  for teachers and their students !--Lou

Kirsty Watts's curator insight, June 2, 2013 6:23 PM

I absolute agree Evernote is so versatile enabling any student or teacher with any device to work in the same way.

Vicki Butler's curator insight, June 7, 2013 2:30 PM

I need explore the power of Evernote.  The power to use this as a 'notebook' for learners intrigues me.
