App #22: TeacherKit for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch [REVIEW]

App #22: TeacherKit for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch [REVIEW] | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

"Teacherkit for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is a free app (iTunes link) for teachers that many iPad/iPhone users will find extremely useful in the classroom. This app, formerly known as TeacherPal, claims to be the “perfect teaching companion” for teachers. I would agree; I have used this app for over a year now, and have been very satisfied with what it can do. The latest update at the end of summer has brought with it many improvements."

Autosyncing Notability and Dropbox. | ipadders.eu | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it
Dropbox and Notability are two powerhouses of iPad education. Notability is arguably the best notetaking app for students and Dropbox, second only to Google Drive, is the best place to store students work. At the Berlage Lyceum we’ve started syncing the two tools which enables teachers to always have insight into the students’ notes and assignments.

Google Drive ios app adds live editing and collaborating. | ipadders.eu | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

Many of the schools that have introduced iPads in the classroom also use the Google Apps for Education suite. Unfortunately these two do not always mix well together. Using Google Apps on the iPads has always been quite tedious, but today Google updated its Google Drive app that solves many of the problems.

Steven Blomdale's curator insight, March 6, 2013 7:35 PM

 In schools across Australia there is strong support for linking learning in Technologies with learning literacy skills. Learning in Technologies places a high priority on accurate and unambiguous communication (ACARA, 2013).Implementing digital technologies in learning areas such as English allows special education teachers to facilitate and accommodate the learning needs of students. This is achieved through integrating assistive devices such as the iPad and its applications to develop critical literacy skills needed in the 21st century.  Consequently special education teacher have a better opportunity to develop important General capabilities such as literacy (LIT) to allows student to become literate as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating in and out of school and for participating effectively in society (ACARA, 2013).

 

 

This website suggests various applications that can be used on the ipad to assist special needs students. The list of  applications were selected to improve and develop students reading, writing and spelling. They engage the students through making the activities, fun and engaging, which I think is important when teaching special needs students.

Patricia Christian's curator insight, March 22, 8:53 PM

You can never have enough resources to pull from when working with mainstream or challenged students.
