Technology Integration for Math Engagement » iPad Integration in the Classroom – Training Session | Technology for Northland | Scoop.it

"Today, provided a new venture in the field of technology integration for me, as I was granted the opportunity to lead a staff development training on iPads. As I look back, I now see how I was roped into this position. Here is the short version: “Dan, could you use a set of 20 iPads in your math classroom?” My response, “Absolutely, thank you!” Response back a few months later, “Okay, you got them…by the way would you lead an iPad training?”"

Steven Blomdale's curator insight, March 6, 2013 7:35 PM

 In schools across Australia there is strong support for linking learning in Technologies with learning literacy skills. Learning in Technologies places a high priority on accurate and unambiguous communication (ACARA, 2013).Implementing digital technologies in learning areas such as English allows special education teachers to facilitate and accommodate the learning needs of students. This is achieved through integrating assistive devices such as the iPad and its applications to develop critical literacy skills needed in the 21st century.  Consequently special education teacher have a better opportunity to develop important General capabilities such as literacy (LIT) to allows student to become literate as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating in and out of school and for participating effectively in society (ACARA, 2013).

 

 

This website suggests various applications that can be used on the ipad to assist special needs students. The list of  applications were selected to improve and develop students reading, writing and spelling. They engage the students through making the activities, fun and engaging, which I think is important when teaching special needs students.
