Inspiring

Julie Newman's curator insight, November 15, 2013 11:43 AM

I found this article very inspirational because it describes a teacher, Jane Good, who did not give up on her special needs students, as the school system was prior to her arrival. Before she came to her current school, her special needs students were placed in broken-down classrooms where they were given no attention and very low expectations. Good was able to guide her students in overcoming these obstacles with the help of a technology grant she received allowing her to supply everyone of her students with an iPad. These iPads allowed students to accomplish goals no one ever thought was possible for them. For example, one student who had never written before due to his lack of fine motor skills wrote his first word on the iPad. Similarly, three other students were able to learn to read though the iPad's stimulating and interactive features. After reading this article, I found that the iPad and other technologies truly helped children with special needs step outside the limitations previously established for them by the school system and make progress no one ever believed could be made. This alone shows me how powerful this tool can be in a special needs classroom. These students need to be stimulated through interactive learning and the iPad provides just that. I have found a lot of research that agrees with this article and proves that technology is a necessity in the special needs classroom.

44 Education Apps For K-6 Open-Ended Learning On The iPad | TeachThought

44 Education Apps For K-6 Open-Ended Learning On The iPad | TeachThought | computers | Scoop.it

"Education apps are helpful for teachers because they refract content through engaging, colorful, and gamified approaches to content interaction.

 

They are also mobile, can offer data, and can be played at school or home, making them useful in a K-12 blended learning or flipped classroom setting.

 

With this kind of flexible utility in mind, it’s no wonder they’re in such high demand–so here are 44 education apps for K-6 students doing the best kind of learning math teachers hate and English-Language Arts teachers love: open-ended learning."

This is a flipped classroom tool for teaching English grammar, with short video explainers followed by interactive exercises. All student activity is tracked back to an LMS. Great tool for making students responsible for their own learning.

Siri has become one of the iPhone’s defining features, but for many people, it’s not always the most useful. While some of this is due to the limitations of voice recognition, the oddity of using voice to command a device is also partly to blame.
