I believe iPads and their use in educational settings have incredible implications for learning and learning outcomes. I’ve trialed using iPads across the main curriculum areas in my classroom with students who have autism and special needs and there were significant improvements across the board.
There is significant research on how Technology Assisted Learning can enhance the learning of children with disabilities. Given that information, I sought to improve my students' chance of success using technology and from the results I believe the iPad can revolutionise the education of children with disabilities.
Using iPads in my classroom improved concentration & persistence; students worked harder & consistently; they were motivated and eager to work: and behaviour and results improved.
This course is an overview of how you can use iPads in your special needs classroom and demonstrates the use of applications to achieve the best results for students.
