The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal | Teaching Special education Students in High School Library | Scoop.it

"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that  iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

I love these lists!

While I do believe these apps could use a bit more work and cost a little less I am happy to see technology in special education classrooms. In many cases children with special needs cam work better with computers than they do with people.

Hannah Roukas's curator insight, December 3, 2013 11:44 AM
I think a program like this is beneficial to special and general ed students because I think a lot of people doubt the abilities of special needs students and general ed students can be crass when it comes to their treatment of these students. By asking some of the general ed students to mentor their special needs peers they can understand who they are victimizing with their obtuse opinions and negative comments. Seeing an article like this is uplifting because more students are becoming aware of their actions and taking steps to improve their actions.

Reaching Different Learning Styles With The iPad

Reaching Different Learning Styles With The iPad | Teaching Special education Students in High School Library | Scoop.it

"How do you learn best?  For me, it depends on what I am learning.  Sometimes I need to take notes, other times I need to think out loud.  Some things are easier to learn with another person while with other things, I need to be alone.  My guess is most of us have different styles for learning depending on what it is we are working on."
