iOS for iPad has dramatically improved multitasking with Spit View dual-pane apps and its counterpart, Slide Over.

What Colleges Can Gain by Adding Makerspaces to Their Libraries

What Colleges Can Gain by Adding Makerspaces to Their Libraries | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Libraries are one of the fastest-evolving learning spaces. As many resources move online, and teachers require students to collaborate more and demonstrate their learning, librarians are trying to keep up. Some are even spearheading the changes. Public libraries have led the effort to provide access to 21st century technologies and learning resources, but now university and K-12 libraries are beginning to catch up. Makerspaces are one way a few groundbreaking libraries are trying to provide equal access to exciting technologies and skills.

Using LEGO to Build Math Concepts | Scholastic.com

Using LEGO to Build Math Concepts | Scholastic.com | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
I was not one of those LEGO® kids growing up. Sure, my brothers had LEGO bricks, and every so often I’d kidnap some tiny LEGO men for a make-believe game. But I didn’t truly appreciate the engineering capacity of those studded plastic bricks. They were just so rigidly rectangular!
As an adult, I’ve come to appreciate LEGO, both for its rectilinear aesthetic, and even more so, for its mathematical might. In the classroom, the tiny bricks are now my favorite possibility-packed math manipulative! Read on for a sampling of math activities that use LEGO pieces to build and reinforce key math concepts.
