Katherine Page Burdick's insight:

Perfect for the teacher who loves to create their own activities or foir the teacher who like to use teacher created activities. EVEN better for Open Content schools, OER and MOOCs. Create an on-the-spot test, or upload maps and have students trace trade routes. Templates give you the format, all that is left is your imagination to make it real! Enterprising teachers can place their created lessons up for sale. The best thing? IT'S FREE!

Katherine Page Burdick's insight:

This is an awesomely cool platform for special needs teachers and therapists. It lets you roster your students then assign them specific apps. Once they log on all they can see are the apps assigned to them. This cuts down on distractions and reinforces the skills they need to work on. Not only does the app come with 100 built-in apps specifically chosen for special needs students but you can also track student progress, email reports, and therapy logs and monitor IEPs. Too good to be true but it is!

Study Smarter – Take Notes And Highlight Text Within iBooks [iOS Tips] | Cult of Mac | MLearning | Scoop.it

Ebooks are all the rage these days, and your iPad is a perfect device for reading them. Textbooks, too, are becoming de riguer for many students in college and even high school, as educators, schools, and publishers find a greater demand for electronic instructional materials.

 

But studying from a book requires interacting with the text at a greater level than just reading it, of course, as students need to keep track of specific passages, or comment on them as they relate to their learning or lecture notes. Most eReading apps, like Nook and Kindle, have these features as well, but iBooks definitely has the most well designed, so let’s take a look at how to use it to study with your electronic books."

iBooks not only speaks the selection but it can also highlight text in different colors and create notes. Great way to provide the tools for using reading strategies to electronic text.

Creating ePub books in apps like Pages, Creative Book Builder allows you to create your own texts for students.

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.
