Tablets and Assessments – A Closer Look

Tablets and Assessments – A Closer Look | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

I think we’re all looking forward to the day when tablets can be used for statewide assessments.

The potential challenges of today’s current-generation tablets may be less obvious, however, but are equally important. Some of these may even require new solutions from the tablet and mobile Operating System (OS) manufacturers themselves

Chalk Walk | Apps For Children with Special Needs

Chalk Walk | Apps For Children with Special Needs | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

Introduce your kids to the first app to help children to develop the pincer grip needed at school. Many children are coming into school unable to properly hold a pencil. As time spent drawing on paper or coloring with crayons is swapped for screen time, key fine motor skills remain underdeveloped. But screen time can also solve the problem and prepare kids for the pencil-and-paper tasks they encounter in school. Mrs. Judd’s Games’ new app, CHALK WALK, is designed to fill in the blank: young hands get needed exercise as they use a thumb & finger pincer grip to play this fun, innovative, teacher-designed game.
