How to set-up and use iCloud Drive on the iPad | iPad Insight

How to set-up and use iCloud Drive on the iPad | iPad Insight | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
iCloud Drive was first introduced with the release of iOS 8 & Yosemite last fall.  Once set-up on your iPad it replaces Documents and Data, where, up to this point, you stored your saved iWork documents.  All documents currently stored in iCloud will automatically be moved to iCloud Drive when you decide to upgrade.  One word of caution before proceeding–once you upgrade your iPad to iCloud Drive, you won’t be able to open any documents stored in iCloud Drive from your Mac, iPhone or any other device until those devices are also upgraded to iOS 8 or Yosemite.

The (5) most useful accessibility features on the iPad | iPad Insight

The (5) most useful accessibility features on the iPad | iPad Insight | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
One of the lesser know features of iOS that adds an incredible amount of functionality to the iPad is Accessibility. Unfortunately, not many people are aware of the many benefits gained with Accessibility–and even fewer are aware of how to access them on their iPad even if they wanted to.  For the sake of narrowing the focus of this post somewhat, I decided to list and give a brief overview of what I believe are the (5) most useful features found in accessibility on your iPad.  Obviously, if you have special needs that require assistance to use your iPad, you might have a very different list of features.  Luckily Apple breaks this feature into several sections that include additional help with Vision, Hearing, and Interaction with your iPad.

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Best Teacher Tools for Taking Screenshots and Annotating Pictures ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Creating tutorials and explanatory guides is best done through the help of screenshots. These are pictures we take of our screens to share with others or include in a visual demonstration of how, for example, a process works. As teachers and educators we often find ourselves in need of such visual annotations and cues to enhance our students comprehensibility. There are several web tools that we can use to create screenshots and we have already reviewed some of them in past publications here. Today, we are introducing you to what we consider to be the best 4 web tools for creating screenshots. Besides being free, these tools are very simple to use and are also student friendly. They will allow you to  capture your screen, crop and annotate your pictures using  arrows, colours, shapes, text and many more.

Four apps for annotating screenshots are discussed here. I like Snagit, where it is possible to save annotated screenshots to one's Google drive.

Easily create an eBook with these 3 powerful apps - Daily Genius | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Digital books are transforming the way students of all ages learn today. The interactive elements of digital books enhance the learning experience, making it far more informative and interesting than before. Many teachers today are embracing this new media and producing some high quality student-made eBooks in their classrooms.



One of the most fascinating ways to create an eBook is using a mobile device, particularly, an iPad. StoryKit, Book Writer, and Book Creator are 3 apps my students have used to create some highly interactive, professionally looking eBooks. All three apps are excellent examples of tools that allow students to unleash their creativity and tell their own stories.

How-to: Moving Audiobooks from your PC to your iPad or iPhone | PadGadget

I know there have got to be some people out there who are having trouble getting audiobooks they’ve downloaded on their computer onto their iPad (or iPhone). It is a fairly simple process, but Apple doesn’t make it completely clear. Even after you think you’ve properly downloaded one onto your device, you may have trouble finding it. Check out our tutorial on how to get your audiobooks onto your iPad and then where to find them once they are there.

How to Use iTunes U in the Classroom - Daily Genius

How to Use iTunes U in the Classroom - Daily Genius | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
When I first heard about iTunes U, I was unsure of how it all worked or how it would fit into my classroom. Today, I cannot imagine teaching without it. iTunes U is a free app that allows teachers to put all course materials, iBooks, apps, and links to submit work in one place for students to access. So instead of a website for my class, students subscribe to my iTunes U course. Once subscribed from their iPads, students have access to all course material, receive notifications when I update content, and check off assignments as they complete them.
