Mr P's ICT blog: Using iPads and Football to encourage reluctant boys to write | Faith iPad research | Scoop.it

As my role this year involves me teaching across the whole school using a class set of iPads, I feel it is important to really experiment to see how using the iPads can impact across the curriculum and not just within ICT.

The iPad: a Useful Tool for Autism

The iPad: a Useful Tool for Autism | Faith iPad research | Scoop.it

Computers are particularly useful for those with autism, as they facilitate communication and aid in learning. In recent months, there has been some buzz in education and autism communities about the Apple iPad.The iPad, like other computers, is an effective tool for many on the autism spectrum. It's flexibility and portability offer some additional advantages, though, over other laptops or PCs.

Apps and autism

Apps and autism | Faith iPad research | Scoop.it
New technology can be inspiring, exciting or sometimes infuriating - but I can't ever remember it being really moving. Until, that is, I met Ruby Dunn, whose life is being changed by a piece of software.

 

 

This piece written by technology correspondent for the BBC Rory Cellan-Jones is yet another testimony on how allowing children with different abilities to find their voice thanks to technology is life changing, not only for those children, but for anyone who had the usual assumptions about their being "disabled".

 

I find it heartwarming, and if actually the cost of the software may be a burden to an individual family, the school system should understand that it is NOT an overated investment for the education of a very able, indeed, student.

iPads in Primary Education: Part 1: Establishing Independent Learners using iPods

iPads in Primary Education: Part 1: Establishing Independent Learners using iPods | Faith iPad research | Scoop.it

"Since I began teaching over seven ago I have always taught the Topic of World War 2. It's a subject I thoroughly enjoy teaching and always an area that the pupils show a real interest. The topic has developed from a stand alone 'History' topic loosely based on a scheme of work, to a topic which encompasses all areas of the curriculum - a creative curriculum."

Unlocking Carly: Using one finger, autistic teen uses iPad, laptop to communicate - Parentcentral.ca | Faith iPad research | Scoop.it

Carly is an amazing teenager who uses her inner voice to advocate for people with autism, and explains in plain words what it is like to live with autism. She blogs and uses social media to answer questions. She is the champion of all who because they cannot speak with their mouth are wrongly considered as not intelligent or capable of thoughts. Read her story and watch her, she is up for extraordinary things.
