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.

Audrey's curator insight, November 28, 2013 12:59 PM

Not only are you able to increase your own intelligence orientation you can also explore other methods of learning which will certainly increase your neural network..  For example, if you are a visual learner, you could combine this logical-mathematical.  Just think:  you could see numbers and learn to add up and multiply much faster.  You could also store your bank account numbers in the visual area of the brain...................................Just think of how you can increase your brain power!!

Have a look at www.hotmoodle.com for different examples of learning.
