29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator's Essential iPad Toolkit

29 Apps For Teachers: The Educator's Essential iPad Toolkit | Customizing Teaching | Scoop.it

"

At TeachThought, we often provide lists of digital resources, and many of them are apps.

 

Apps for struggling readers. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/50-popular-ipad-apps-for-struggling-readers-writers/

 

Apps for struggling writers. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/41-resources-tools-and-apps-to-improve-writing-skills/

 

Apps for project-based learning. http://www.teachthought.com/apps-2/10-apps-for-more-organized-project-based-learning/

 

Any while many of these apps are for students, the following list of apps from Sam Gliksman can be considered for both teachers and students, and an excellent foundation slew of apps for any 21st century teacher. From GoodReader and Slide Shark to Printopia and Air Display, all fill different niches of 21st century learning, and the many possibilities the iPad affords."

This is great, there are many excellent apps for so many subjects/ skills/ features/ assignments/ lessons etc. in general and special education. It would be great if there was a way for teachers to add/ recommend apps as well as other professionals. I provide training on apps and have SO many to add to this list!

I am familiar with pages, keynote, numbers, notability, evernote, dropbox, annotate pdf, pbs, and edmodo. Look for videos on YouTube to see how they work.

VBookz

From the Chris Ford in the DyslexicAdvantage.com community:


This is my fav, fav, fav, text to voice reader (have I mentioned its my fav?????). 


Pros: You can import pdf files (books, articles, etc), directly to this app. I would recommend that you download dropbox to your device so that you can download (lets say an article), to dropbox, and then upload to vBookz. Pretty cheap as well, (I think this one was like 4 bucks or so). You pay for one language (American English is the one I purchased...of course, but available in a ton of other languages.), and each additional if needed . Finally, it has a similar format to dropbox (you can see the pages and switch back and forth if needed between pages).


Cons: Well, even the Mustang Shelby GT500 from "Gone in 60 Seconds" had problems with shutting off at times: Click here to see Eleanor (the car from Gone in 60 secs). This is my biggest gripe of this app as well (it may shut off from time to time). Also, although the page search function is similar to dropbox, alas it is not dropbox, and it may be a bit tough when you can't punch in the actual pg number. Also, the same issues with only the one monotone voice available. 


Other apps to consider Voice Dream  and  Voice Paper. 


Voice Paper is handy because it works with Dropbox and Evernote. For longer reviews of these apps, check out the Dyslexic Medical Professionals Group.

iWordQ App for Struggling Readers and Writers

"iWordQ CA is an easy-to-use writing and reading application to assist struggling writers and readers.

 

In Writing mode, a simple text editor is used for writing with the support of word prediction, abbreviation-expansion and speech feedback features. Spell-check and dictionary access is included. Use speech recognition with an iPad 3.

 

In Reading mode, text is shown in a more visually pleasing manner to improve readability. This is used for proofreading, reading to learn, silent reading, reading aloud, and casual reading/listening. A novel text chunking method (patent-pending) can be selected to enhance comprehension and readability of text to allow you to focus on one text chunk at a time."

Accessible Pages with MathJax

MathJax was designed with accessibility in mind and has several powerful features to make math easier to see and read, both for ordinary users as well as those with print and learning disabilities.  Two accessibility features, the ability to scale all math in a page or zoom in on a particular equation, are built in to MathJax.  In addition, MathJax works with MathPlayer to make math accessible to screen readers, to screen magnifiers, and to learning disability software.

Diana Petschauer's curator insight, March 16, 8:55 PM

Great video and insight; Assistive Technology and

Educational Technology is supporting all students as well as adults, but certainly offering significant support to those who have disabilities, or are naturally losing abilities due to aging or injury. Assistive Technology levels the playing field, and makes things possible that were otherwise impossible, or makes things easier that were previously so difficult. It levels the playing field. More importantly, AT and Ed Tech are helping our students to access education and employment individually, successfully, and to Compete Globally in the workforce. It is simply absurd to keep students behind by withholding technology supports, and keep them from learning new skills or knowledge in the best possible and accessible format, or to keep them from reaching their peak potential. When they get into "the real world," they can choose any phone, any tablet, any computer, any technology to help them succeed, and compete against other students who are using technology daily to be employed, or even just to access their community and home. How are we supporting our students to be successful in the future? Hopefully not by telling them that technology is cheating or unfair, but rather seeing the potential it offers them. So many assistive technology options are low cost or free now as well, the old excuses and fears need to be left behind.

Patricia Schachtner's curator insight, March 25, 2:18 PM

This video really helped to expand my understanding of the importance of AT in schools.
