Steven Blomdale's curator insight, March 6, 2013 7:28 PM

Through the use of digital technologies students develop ICT capabilities through being exposed and adapting to new ways of doing things as technologies evolve (ACARA, 2013). Students 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.

 

The following list consist of applications addresses the learning needs of special needs students. These applications delevop social skills, speech to text, augmentative/alternative communication and  develop spatial reasoning skills. I have used some of these applications such as "My first ACC and Pictello" in previous practicums and they have engaged the student.

"Idea Sketch is a simple app for creating mind maps on your iPad. One of the features of Idea Sketch that stands out is the option to flip back and forth between a web format and an outline format. This makes the app a good choice for students who occasionally prefer to a linear outline instead of a web layout."
