The folloing list of applications provide opportunities for autistic students to apply practical skills and process technologies and resources to meet current and future needs (ACARA, 2013). These skills include developing 21st century life skills such as communication.

Why (And How) To Start Teaching Coding In School - Edudemic

Why (And How) To Start Teaching Coding In School - Edudemic | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Fueled by an incredible demand in the workforce for proficient programmers and the need to teach critical thinking skills, the coding movement in schools has exploded. Furthermore, we all communicate through technology, so we should at least know the basic premise of coding because the gadget sitting in our pocket, or on our desk, should not be a mysterious black box to us or our students. Just like writing, multimedia, art, and music are mediums to show ideas, coding can be another form of expression.``

The Best iPad Apps to Use with SAMR Model ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Best iPad Apps to Use with SAMR Model ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"SAMR model is a conceptual framework developed by  Dr. Ruben Puentedura to help you better integrate technology in your instruction. SAMR stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition. Each of these four levels correspond with a set of tech-based activities and learning tasks. The strength of SAMR model is that it provides teachers with a robust method to gauge and assess the efficacy of the technology they and their students use in class. Check out this section for more resources on  SAMR."

Use iPads In The Classroom? This Acceptable Policy Poster Is For You. | Edudemic

Use iPads In The Classroom? This Acceptable Policy Poster Is For You. | Edudemic | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"Chances are, if you’re teaching a group of younger students (elementary or middle school, though high schoolers are certainly not known for being super careful with their devices either), you’re likely concerned about how they’re handling your expensive classroom iPads. There are a ton of “tough” tablet cases out there designed to save your device when it is dropped/banged/slammed/smacked/otherwise injured, but just trying to protect them for when that happens isn’t getting at the root of the problem. Teaching students how to properly handle their devices so that they don’t get broken (or are less likely to, since obviously accidents happen) is a necessary approach (though I’d still recommend padding those iPads to high heaven in whatever case is most appropriate for your classroom needs)."

The report marked a potential setback for a program that Superintendent John Deasy last year heralded as a civil rights initiative to help his district's largely disadvantaged students,

teachingwithipad.org - Where did My Camera Roll and Photo Stream go in iOS8? | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"People who downloaded iOS8 this week were surprised to find something very familiar missing from their Photos app. Gone is the Camera Roll that we have been so accustomed to. Also gone is the Photo Stream folder that contained the last 1000 photos taken on all our devices. These have been replaced by a Recently Added folder. Looks pretty messy, in my opinion. I enjoyed having the distinction between the two."

TNW - SwiftKey for iOS Review

TNW - SwiftKey for iOS Review | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
Oh happy day, it’s here at last. For years, I’ve been frustrated by the iOS keyboard. It felt like the cramped and under-developed weak link in what was otherwise a mature and slick operating system. With iOS 8 comes support for third-party keyboards, and with that comes SwiftKey – in my opinion the best keyboard available for Android.

If you’re new to SwiftKey, you’ll find that it’s quite similar to the new default keyboard in iOS 8, but it offers a whole lot more.

ScratchJr - #peel21st Blog Hop

ScratchJr - #peel21st Blog Hop | iPads in Education | Scoop.it
No, ScratchJr is not the iPad version of Scratch.  They are actually quite different when you examine the programming potential of each. ScratchJr would be more aptly characterized as “ScratchLite” or “SimpleScratch.” I have seen Scratch used by all ages of children in school, from K to 12, and very successfully.  Programs in Scratch can be incredibly simple or incredibly complex.  ScratchJr is only capable of fairly simple programs, and primarily narrative animations. However, ScratchJr works on the iPad! That’s great news for many classroom teachers and students alike. Scratch does not work on the iPad; it’s a web 2.0 tool that runs in your browser using Flash player.

I contacted my colleague Jonathan Wylie, and we brainstormed together some ideas for this post."
