A mom developed this math to help her son who is dysgraphic and dyslexic have a tool where he could set up math problems on virtual graph paper. She has shared this app for free and is leveling the playing field for the thousands of learners who struggle with making math legible.

 

Mod Math Specifics:

 

> Provide students with a virtual piece of graph paper, where they can set up math problems in a format that’s easily legible.

 

> Allow students to do basic math problem solving, including addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as well as fractions and equations, all without ever picking up a pencil.

 

> Print out the work pages to turn it at school, or e-mail them directly to the teacher.

"Authors are pressed for time. What if we could "dictate" our novels instead of typing them?"

This post is very timely, as I have been considering making the switch from Word to Scrivener, and from typing to dictating.

 

This author is finding her voice with the software, "Dragon Naturally Speaking", and she gives us some very compelling reasons to try it out. Number 1? INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY.

 

She started out small with dictating e-mails and blog posts, and then gave it a shot for dictating the first draft of a novel. Her article gives us a peek into her process. Fascinating.

 

You can find this software on Amazon, and can get started with the home version to try it out.

Darla Hatton and her daughter,  Kaila (who is dyslexic) personally researched and/or tested these 25 mobile apps in December 2012 on the iPhone and iPad. They note: "New editions may change the nature of an app, making it less LD-friendly. “New” may not mean “better” for you.. They can make the writing process a bit easier and even fun! Not every app will be a “perfect fit” for everyone who has LD, but with a little testing, you can figure out which one works best for your child or teen’s individual needs."

Solid advice for those who struggle with disabilties that affect reading and writing.

Video Scheduler - A Top Ten App for Special Education

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, June 21, 2013 9:40 AM

Comments from THE Journal about this app that is considered one of the top 10 apps for special education:

 

"This app is a cross between an activity schedule and a video model. Like most activity schedule applications, it allows users to create checklists identifying the individual tasks required to accomplish a goal or objective. What sets Video Scheduler apart, however, is the option to include a still photo or video segment that demonstrates how each step in the task is completed. There is a wealth of research supporting the use of both activity schedules and video models with students on the autism spectrum and other students who may struggle with time and task management. Video Scheduler empowers students to work independently with little or no prompting from teachers or job coaches"

This is a great app providing video scheduling for students with a preferred visual mode of learning or accessing information.
