ASD Wheel: Apps for Differentiated Instruction

ASD Wheel: Apps for Differentiated Instruction | iPads in Education: Apps, Classroom Management, & More | Scoop.it

From Apple Distinguished Educator and special education expert Mark Coppin:

"When looking for apps for students on the autism spectrum (ASD), it is important to look at all educational apps and not just those that are tagged as autism apps. They have many of the same learning needs that other students have. This list was developed to provide apps based on common learning characteristics and traits that are typical for students with ASD. It is important to remember that all students learn differently and selecting apps should be based on the unique learning needs of the student.This list is only a sampling of apps available for each skill area. This is not, nor is it meant to be a definitive list. This list is intended to give you a starting place and a rationale for picking certain apps."

9 Outstanding Apps to Teach Creative Writing

9 Outstanding Apps to Teach Creative Writing | iPads in Education: Apps, Classroom Management, & More | Scoop.it

"Creative writing is something students get to learn by the frequency of practice, the more they practice the better they become.Some students develop a negative attitude towards writing because they were never been shown the real joy they can get in engaging in such an act. The traditional way of teaching writing is no longer working. We can not provide a pen and blank paper and expect our students to produce solid pieces of writing. This is a process of commitment, students need to feel connected to the writing task they are immersed in, they need to love it and to love it they need to see why they need to write after all."

As we consider the move to a 1:1 in Euclid, I think these are valid points. While my preference is the iPad, I wonder about the dependence on apps by some teachers and/or adminsitrators who don't understand the importance of balance in digital and analog learning activities. We should be responsible enough to find and keep this very balance.

iBooks Author Goes Beyond Textbooks

iBooks Author Goes Beyond Textbooks | iPads in Education: Apps, Classroom Management, & More | Scoop.it

When iBooks Author, Apple’s multimedia e-book authoring tool, was unveiled in January, it was hailed for how easy it is to use and its ability to create rich, multimedia, and interactive educational content. Initially aimed at the textbook market—though at the launch Apple’s Phil Shiller also said iBooks Author could be used to create any kind of book—over the past year iBooks Author has been adopted by a wide-ranging and growing number of trade book publishers as well as educational publishers. Almost a year later, the iBookstore offers a steadily growing list of books “Made with iBooks Author,” and is being used to create a growing number of visually oriented titles. Those using iBooks Author are even okay with the fact that the titles they create can only be sold in the iBookstore.

"This week, Grade 5 began a unit on Volume, Capacity and Surface Area. On a weekly basis, I take combined groups from the 4 grades consisting of the higher achievers, while the classroom teachers concentrate on the mainstream group and students needing more individual instruction to achieve success. I made a conscious decision this week to focus on using iPads with my group to explore both volume/capacity as well as surface area."
