Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, October 31, 2013 8:06 AM

"Students with Autistic Spectrum Disorder have a wide variety of strengths and abilities that make their communication and learning skills complex, diverse and sometimes challenging. Many of their difficulties can be broken into the areas of Communication, Social Skills and Behaviour. We know that students with Autism are strong visual learners, which makes the iPad a perfect instructional tool to support communication, social skills development and positive behaviour."

 

The Spectronics team has done an outstanding job in compiling resources, apps and information on ways to support autistic learners in the areas of Communication, Social Skills and Behaviour.

 

Many thanks to Spectronics and the amazing work that they do to support all learners!

A Wonderful Wheel featuring iPad Apps for Autistic Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Wonderful Wheel featuring iPad Apps for Autistic Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Storytelling with iPads | Scoop.it

"I must admit that apps for autistic learners are really scarce and hard to find. A few months ago I posted here a list some powerful apps for autism and today while I was looking for new apps that might have been created since the publication of that list I came across this wonderful wheel.

I know that the first thing that comes to mind when you see this wheel is the popular pedagogy Wheel created by Allan Carrington in which he provided suggestions for 62 apps based on Bloom's Taxonomy. The present wheel is developed by Mark Coppin in which he featured a wide variety of apps for autistic students."

MOTION MATH IN-CLASS - Study Shows Significant Improvement in Fraction Knowledge

MOTION MATH IN-CLASS - Study Shows Significant Improvement in Fraction Knowledge | Storytelling with iPads | Scoop.it

One of the first studies on a math app was conducted by USC Professor Michelle Riconscente  on Motion Math.  The results indicated that game play can boost kids’ confidence in and enthusiasm for academic subject matter.  Here is the research design and some of  the findings.

 

"The study evaluated whether playing Motion Math led to increases in children’s fractions knowledge and attitudes. Over 120 participants played the game for 20 minutes daily for five days, for a total of 1 hour and forty minutes of game play. Among the main findings were that fractions knowledge increased an average of 15%, and participants gained confidence in their fractions ability and reported liking fractions more after playing the game.

 

With hundreds of educational iPad apps on the market, it is important to know whether they help children learn, and whether iPad apps like Motion Math also contribute to children’s positive attitudes toward academic subject matter. Though much more research is needed to test learning apps, and to discover ways to use them most effectively with a broad range of learners, this study marks an important step toward testing educational technologies with stringent research designs.

 

In less than two hours of game play distributed over five days, the app shifted the needle on participants’ understanding of a topic that has long eluded most learners."
