The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal | EdTech News | Scoop.it

"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that  iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

Good stuff - thanks for the post!
Denver Leigh Watson, M.Ed, LDTC's curator insight, September 18, 2013 10:30 AM

I love these lists!

Marianne Gunn's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:46 AM

While I do believe these apps could use a bit more work and cost a little less I am happy to see technology in special education classrooms. In many cases children with special needs cam work better with computers than they do with people.
