Phone Scanner Stand -Instructables

Phone Scanner Stand -Instructables | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
As a teacher, I am always scanning documents (answer keys, student work, etc.) and saving the scans as PDF's. For many years, I have user the scanner function on the office photocopier. Now, with the use of a scanning app on my phone, and this stand, I can scan the documents myself. Then after scanning, I can email the scans, upload them to Google Drive or to Dropbox.

So let's get started!

Apple’s iBooks StoryTime app for Apple TV will read to your kids

Apple’s iBooks StoryTime app for Apple TV will read to your kids | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
"Apple on Thursday released a new Apple TV application called iBooks StoryTime that brings children’s books to the TV’s big screen. Kids can flip through the pages of the books on their own, or switch on Read-Aloud narration which will sync the audio to the on-screen text and flip the pages for you. 

 The app, which works on 4th generation Apple TV devices that have access to tvOS App Store, is a free download, but the books themselves are not. There’s one free giveaway at launch so you can test the functionality: a Read-Aloud title called “Dora’s Big Buddy Race Read-Along Storybook.”"

Schools say bye to shop class, hello to maker space

Schools say bye to shop class, hello to maker space | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Think about dreaming, like building stilts.

Think about designing, like collaborating in a flexible space from funky-colored chairs on wheels.

Think about testing, like crafting conductivity testers needed for your classmates.

Think about making, like programming and assembling a security card system for the space.

Above all, think.

Schools now are thinking a lot about maker spaces, and the term can mean many things, as shown in the examples above, from Brandywine High, St. Elizabeth, Newark High and Tatnall schools, respectively.

Collaborative Art with Sphero and Tickle App

Collaborative Art with Sphero and Tickle App | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Talk about putting the A in STEAM!

This week students in my Explore class will be learning the basics of blockly programing with the Tickle app and learn how to program Sphero. With an introduction to action art by famous artists such as Jackson Pollock, students will work together to learn how to program Sphero using the Tickle app to create a collaborative art piece! Yes, we are painting and programming a robot. Engagement is high in my classroom and my little programmers are using inquiry to figure out how to code. We begin with programing the Orca in Tickle and move toward programming Sphero. Our grand finale will be a collaborative art piece we can proudly display for our school community.

Everyone Can Code - Apple  | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Technology has a language. It’s called code. And we believe coding is an essential skill. Learning to code teaches you how to solve problems and work together in creative ways. And it helps you build apps that bring your ideas to life. We think everyone should have the opportunity to create something that can change the world. So we’ve designed a new approach to coding that lets anyone learn, write and teach it.

Create an Amazing Low-tech Library Makerspace

Create an Amazing Low-tech Library Makerspace | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it

Unless you live under a rock or are completely off the grid when it comes to technology, you’re probably aware of the maker movement. However, if you need a refresher, I made an infographic. The maker movement is such an exciting time for students and teachers alike! Yet, while a part of you is excited, the other part of you is flooded with the reasons why you just can’t start a makerspace right now.

“I have no money.”
“I’m just not super comfortable with technology.”
“We don’t have devices at my school.”
“I don’t have the space.”
“I don’t have the schedule that allows me to teach the kids how to do the stuff.” 


I find this to be incredibly unfortunate. Not unfortunate in that I wish you had more money and were more comfortable with technology (although I sympathize), but unfortunate in that you think you need both of those to start a makerspace. With the massive amount of information out there about makerspaces, somewhere along the way, the term “maker” became synonymous with words like “3-D printing” and “robots.”

My husband loves woodworking and I like building computers. Am I more of a “maker” than he is? Am I being less of a maker when I use zip-ties and soda caps to fix my son’s toy car rather than 3-D printing a replacement part? Absolutely not!
