Great apps for student's with disabilities.  

Jane Strunck's curator insight, May 12, 2013 6:44 PM

Consider usefulness of an app according to learner preferences and strengths, educational goal and characteristics of the app itself. 

 

Blaine Morrow's curator insight, May 13, 2013 8:22 AM

"Samantha Thomas, a student, future librarian, and educator at Kutztown University, created this handycollection of assistive technologies that you may find helpful. Some are commonly used with special needs individuals, such as augmentative & alternative communication apps like My Pictures Talk,Look2Learn, and iTalk. Others are general consumer apps, such as Evernote, Google Earth, andAudacity."

"The ever clever Russel Tarr has developed a new neat tool for creating fictional text message exchanges between fictional and or historical characters. The Classtools SMS Generator is free to use and does not require students to log-in. To use the SMS Generator just click the left speech bubble icon and enter a message. Then to create a reply just click the right speech bubble icon and enter a new message. You can make the exchange as long as you like. To share the conversation click the sprocket icon and grab the embed code, direct link, or QR code for the exchange. "
