5 Accessibility Features Every Learner Should Know | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
On the occasion of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) this week (May 19th), I created an infographic using Piktochart to highlight some of the iOS accessibility features that can benefit a wide range of diverse learners, not just those who have been labeled as having a disability. This post is an alternative representation for those who cannot…

Mobile Montessori is proud to present the Movable Alphabet!

The movable alphabet allows children to express themselves with words and phrases prior to mastering the skill to write with paper and pencil!

Children can phonetically sound out words, one letter at a time to build words. The app includes over 40 images of simple words, along with audio pronunciations and instructions, for children to practice with. Additional word sets are available via InApp Purchase!

One unique feature in this app, are the buttons in the box above each letter. Children can touch the buttons to hear the sound of the letters, giving them the ability to, “search” for the sound they are thinking of to build their word!

You will appreciate the simple format without distractions and gimmicks! This app was developed and approved by a Montessori teacher with over 40 years experience teaching children.

2013 Edison Award for Innovation Winner (Productivity Category).

Time Timer for iPad is a remarkably easy way to manage time.

The Time Timer for iPad App displays time as a red disk that quietly gets smaller as time elapses. Children as young as three understand that when the red is gone, time is up! And unlike many other visual timers, the Time Timer App has a professional look and packed feature set to help adults make every moment count. Highly recommended by experts in education, healthcare, ADHD, Autism and parenting.

Time Timer – Quick Start
In a hurry? Tap “Quick Start”, touch the number of minutes you need, and press Play! The red disk will count down to 0 and notify you when time is up (even if you’ve left the app). Tap the disk at any time to see a numerical readout of how much time is left.

Play a Timer
1. Select your Timer (up to 4 at a time).
2. Press “Play Timers.” The countdown will start instantly.

Create and Save Timers
When you create a new Time Timer, choose one of three visual modes:
1. Original 60-Minutes Mode: Just like Time Timer products, Minutes mode shows you your time as a portion of 60 minutes, make it easy to see how much time is left.
2. Custom Mode: The Custom Mode Timer can be any amount of time you need – 10 seconds, 10 minutes, 10 hours! Great for interval training.
3. Clock Mode: See what time it will be when your time is up!

Total Flexibility
+ View up to four Timers at once, or tap one Timer to bring it full-screen.
+ Edit one Timer while others keep counting down.
+ Use other apps while your Timer is running. The Time Timer app will notify you when time is up.

Awake Mode
Awake Mode ensures that your iPhone or iPod Touch will not fall asleep while you’re in the Time Timer App. To save battery life, switch Awake Mode Off. On the My Timers page, tap the Settings wheel in the upper-left corner and turn On to Off.

Make Every Moment Count!
Use the Time Timer App in:
+ Business: time your meetings, projects and presentations. Use Clock Mode to see your whole workday!
+ Education: teach a child what “five minutes” looks like. Help older students manage homework & tests without the stress of a numerical countdown.
+ Family: keep the family moving by timing housework, yard work, home work, time-outs and computer/tv time.
+ Healthcare: time your medications and workouts! Comfort a child during a medical procedure by showing how much time is left.
+ Special Needs: discover the profound impact that the Time Timer can have on ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia and diverse special needs.
+ Life: beat the clock! Motivate yourself to keep going until the red disk is gone and time is up!
