Using iPads in Special Needs Education

Posted by:

The Department for Childhood Education and Early Childhood Development from Victoria, Australia has produced an excellent

 which gives essential guidelines and help to teachers wishing to use iPads in SEN teaching situations. It recommends suitable apps listed against nine key categories:

  • Organisational Apps
  • Communication and Assistive Technology Apps
  • Reading Apps
  • Writing Apps
  • Maths Apps
  • Art and Technology Apps
  • Music and Song Apps
  • Reference Apps
  • Games Apps

Each app has been given a description, a level and it lists the groups of users who would benefit from using it. So much background study has gone into this booklet it is a very useful starting point for teachers in the UK.
