About the campaign - | autism | Asperger syndrome | | Promising Activities for Students with Autism in Preschool and Kindergarten | Scoop.it
We believe that everyone with autism1 should have as full and independent a life as possible. That’s why our new campaign, The undiscovered workforce, is about supporting people with autism (including Asperger syndrome) into sustainable employment.
Jaime Gallardo's insight:

Individuals who are on the autism spectrum can accomplish so much. Many become to be great mathmeticians and engineers. Just because a student or individual has autism doesn't mean they are incompetent; they have so much potential to show.

Jaime Gallardo's insight:

Parents who are having a child with autism can be shocking to some parents. Yes, it does take some extra assistance taking care of a child with autism but when you come to understand how amazing the child is you don't look at them as autisitic but you see them as a true and healthy child

Technology In Education Can Only Do One Thing - TeachThought | Promising Activities for Students with Autism in Preschool and Kindergarten | Scoop.it

"Technology is such an incredible force that Luddite cries of caution are a waste of time. Technology isn’t going anywhere, but instead builds on itself endlessly with or without our consent. Rather, this is a simple reminder that the future of learning is the future of what it means to be human."

How to use AirDrop - iOS 7’s most important new feature for teachers - teachingwithipad.org

How to use AirDrop - iOS 7’s most important new feature for teachers - teachingwithipad.org | Promising Activities for Students with Autism in Preschool and Kindergarten | Scoop.it

"When Apple announced Airdrop this past June, I knew it would be a great feature for teachers with iPads. A common complaint about iPads in the classroom was that it wasn’t necessarily easy to transfer student work in the Camera Roll to the teacher. With no USB connection and no SD card slot, how was a teachersupposed to collect student work? Email would work for small files, but videos were much too large to send. Dropbox could be a solution, but that would require students to set up their own accounts, problematic if they are under a certain age. Enter AirDrop, a seamless and very quick way to transfer files via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections between “nearby” devices."

Kirsty Watts's curator insight, November 7, 2013 1:40 AM

Airdrop is such a great feature for collecting student work.

Larissa Bonthorne's curator insight, November 7, 2013 7:01 PM

This may be an easy way to transfer student work from one device to another, rather than using Dropbox.  It does need iOS 7 to work properly, though.

Rob van Ockenburg, mediacoach bij Accrete's curator insight, November 18, 2013 10:08 AM

Via Airdrop delen is wel heel gemakkelijk
