Through the use of the iPad it allows the teacher to actively engage the student confidently with technologies. Consequence provides better opportunities to make informed, ethical and sustainable decisions about technologies for preferred futures including personal health and wellbeing, recreation, everyday life, the world of work and enterprise, and the environment (ACARA, 2013).

 

This article describes how Warringa Park School used the iPad to support student learning. I found it interesting that the principal commented on it is invigorating and exciting seeing students who could never engage with a computer or an IWB to attempt to open and use an app in a way that you can see they are learning. Maybe the time is up for the IWB and computers????

"Talking about children with special needs generally means kids with Down syndrome, cerebral palsy or some kind of mental deficiency. Truth is, the spectrum of special needs is so wide that discussion may include not only many varied conditions, but also the people with them: mental deficiencies, motor deficiencies, learning problems, visual and/or aural weakness, blindness, deafness and even outstanding intelligence, among many others."
