20+ New Ways Students With Special Needs Can Use iOS 5 | Edudemic | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

iOS 5 features a new resource called Assistive Touch. It essentially streamlines more than 20 of the most-used processes for the device.It can help you do just about anything from having a custom lock screen to creating custom gestures that help you send mail. Assistive Touch is a big step forward for everyone with special needs. I suggest you check it out even if you may not think you’d benefit as it could actually help just about anyone looking to customize their experience a bit.

Thomas Suarez - iPhone Application Developer... and 6th Grader

Thomas Suarez is a 6th grade student at a middle school in the South Bay of Los Angeles. When Apple released the Software Development Kit (SDK), he began to create and sell his own applications. "My parents, my friends and even the people at the Apple store all supported me," he says, "and Steve Jobs inspired me". Thomas points out that it's hard to learn how to make an app. "For soccer you could go to a soccer team ... but what if you want to make an app?" He's started a club for fellow students at school, where he shares his knowledge of programming. Thomas articulates his vision that students are a valuable new technology resource to teachers, and should be empowered to offer assistance in developing the technology curriculum and also assist in delivering the lessons.Thomas has been fascinated by computers and technology since before kindergarten. Recently, he's been focused on the development of applications for the iPhone, and has established his own company, CarrotCorp http://www.carrotcorp.com/
