11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad | iPad Tips and Tricks for Teachers | Scoop.it

Mind mapping is a method that works for quite a lot of people. Brain storming, idea mapping, thought generation, think tanks – call it what you will. Traditionally done on large pieces of paper, why not use your iPad to create mind maps? You could use these for your own purposes, or “convert” those large flip charts into a smaller, digital version.

@bdmtech Assistive Technology Blog: What's on my iPad? Assistive Apps I Use as a Dyslexic Student

@bdmtech Assistive Technology Blog: What's on my iPad? Assistive Apps I Use as a Dyslexic Student | iPad Tips and Tricks for Teachers | Scoop.it

As a dyslexic high school student my iPad, with a number of assistive apps, has become a very valuable tool. With my iPad I can read and fill out a PDF using text-to-speech, read a book with Voice Dream Reader, or map out my ideas with Inspiration Maps. The iPad mini is a perfect size for my needs allowing me to read sitting up, or reclining comfortably while listening to a book. Before I got the iPad I would either be tied to a computer to read using text-to-speech, or reading on the tiny screen of my iPhone. Here's a list of my favorite iPad apps and how I use them to help me both in and out of the classroom.

Assistive Technology and the 1:1 Student

Assistive Technology and the 1:1 Student | iPad Tips and Tricks for Teachers | Scoop.it

"Meaghan Roper, a junior at Burlington High School, shares a similar story with the iPad. When Meaghan was six years old, she was diagnosed with a visual impairment. In the eighth grade, she started to notice a decline in her vision. She sought out surgery to repair or delay her vision decline, and while successful, the procedure did not hold for very long.

 

A Transformative Experience

 

Meaghan recalls her first moments with the iPad and how she and her liaison discovered the variety of new opportunities that this one device presented. One of the first things she used was the ability to invert the colors of the screen. The iPad gives users the opportunity to read predominantly black text on a lighter screen, or to invert the colors and overlay white text on a black screen. This one feature, Meaghan recalls, was "transformative" in her learning of what the iPad could offer her educational experience.

 

Apps for Every Need

 

In Meaghan's day-to-day operation of the iPad, she uses several applications to manage her content. It doesn't take her too many apps to get through her school day. She's thankful that, along with transitioning to the iPad, Burlington also married the Google Apps for Education suite with this device. She finds ease in accessing Google Docs from multiple devices and knowing that her work will always be safe, secure and not dependent on a machine's functionality."

 

Read more about how Meaghan uses apps to support her learning!

Through the use of assistive technology special needs students are able to learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively, and in their lives beyond school in the 21st century.

 

The blog following blog by Andrew Marcinek, Instructional Technology Specialist, writes about how iPads are being used as assistive devices. He describes the iPad as a opening for many, showing the potential of the iPad as an assistive technology and how it can change learning for students with impairments. Andrew writes about meaghan and how she used the iPad and applications throughout her schooling. Its worth a read.

"For many parents of middle school students (and, for that matter, high school students), the iPad can become the source of stress. A number of questions arise, for example “how do I know that what they’re doing is actually for school,” or “why is it taking them 2 hours to do what their teacher said was a 15 minute assignment?”"

"I have had the privilege of being able to plough new ground in my classroom with a class set of iPads. I now have over a year of experience in using them with my students everyday. Over that time I have had alot of trial, error and troubleshooting. But now into my second year I have the benefit of being familiar with iPads strengths and weaknesses. All of the apps in my list of 15 Ways to Use an iPad are ones that I have used with students."
