Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 15, 2013 11:35 AM

This app wonderwheel is developed for students on the autism spectrum by an Apple educator Mark Coppin whom is also the Director of Assistive Technology at the Anne Carlsen Center. The wheel is split into six sections that define common learning expectations. Each of the sections then shows common learning traits, followed by app categories and then the apps (each of which is hot linked at the website). The six categories are:

* Behavior

* Communication

* Social Skills

* Need for Sameness or Routine

* Sensory Sensitivity

* Difficulty with Traditional Learning Methods

The link you to the chapter that discusses Assistive Technology. To go directly to the App Wonderwheel use this link http://www.autismhandbook.org/images/4/4c/Appwheel.pdf.

It is often difficult to know which apps to choose when we work with students. This resource may help you determine some apps to investigate for students on the autism spectrum. 

Sarah Bylsma's curator insight, July 25, 2013 10:11 AM

Great resource.

Thomas C. Thompson's curator insight, July 13, 2013 8:47 AM

I've found that this isn't as easy to set as an objective for learning as it should be... not because of students or teachers, but because administrators are reluctant to "authorize" these kinds of projects without some kind of assurance it won't lead to demands for change in their buildings, and parents are scared their children will be exposed to all the bad things on the Internet. This was especially true in my school in a high-rent district (after all, aren't rich kids more valuable?)

 

Don't forget to get buy-in from these essential partners BEFORE you start a project that may lead to a learning revolution Not just in your classroom but everywhere! Load your boat before you set sail!

Important message for teachers who might not be in this place yet. "Technology is a tool, not a learning outcome."
