  • 12. - MLP12C Support Centre Staff Responses Students took photos on their iPad during travel training then used these photos to support their recount writing. Some students used ‘stories about me’ app to write their recount using the photos as a prompt. I use iPads to support student handwriting sessions by using tracing and writing apps. I have used iPads to assist the kids with counting. Using different apps to get the children to count a collection I'm using youtube to present Performing Arts lessons Getting students to copy actions and use their voice to sing along. We have been using the iPad's to record students during food technology sessions to record the improvement in specific skills for each student and show it back to them to help them improve. We have used iPads to take photos of cooking sessions to make our own recipe book using Book Creator. “ “ “ “ “ “ ” ” ”” ” ”

  • 15. Differentiating Instruction Flipping Content Delivery Sensory Learning Enhancing Communication Personalised Learning
  • 16. Differentiating Instruction iPad devices allow teachers to tailor content delivery to individual student needs. This can be done via presentation, video, audio, image or document. All of which can be tailored and shared with individual students based on their learning needs. Cloud File Sharing services such as Dropbbox, Showbie, and even Google Drive, give teachers the ability to share learning materials to individual students’ folders, which contain their individualized learning materials. DropBox Showbie Google Drive Socrative Nearpod Edmodo Evernote
  • 17. Flipping Content Delivery Flipping Content Delivery involves having teachers use screen casting applications such as ScreenChomp, ShowMe, Explain Everything, and Educreations as well as video creation apps (iMovie, Reel Director,) to produce short instructional videos to provide front loading support for students. The use of instructional video (Khan Academy, Math Train) for learning provides individualised support that can be viewed time and time again to assist a student to develop the understanding they need.

  • 19. Sensory LearningThe iPad devices touch interface allows students to manipulate content and objects in a wide variety of applications. App’s such as Pic Collage, Doodle Buddy, Puppet Pals, and Toontastic, Story Robe allow students to alter images and add audio to demonstrate understandings. As per the iPad devices accessibility features, audio feedback included in many apps is another great way to support learning. Much of what can be read on an iPad by a student can also be read to them. Students can also highlight text and take take typed or audio notes. The use also of Augmented Reality Apps (Aurasma, ColAR Mix) can foster Pic Collage Doodle Buddy Toontastic Puppet Pals Aurasma ColAR Mix Story Robe

  • 22. Enhancing Communication There are a wide variety of applications to support both the development of communication as well as assisting students to communicate with their teachers and peers. App’s such as Stories About Me, Proloquo2Go and iSpeakWord, allow students to express their wants, emotions and understandings in ways that otherwise may be inconceivable. I Speak Word Stories About Me Proloquo2Go
  • 23. Personalised Learning A real power in having students use an iPad device is through having students personalise their own learning. Through using the applications and assistive iPad features to help them demonstrate learning outcomes, students can articulate in their own words what understandings they’ve met. The way in which students can do this is only limited by their imagination. Let them discover and showcase their learning in their own way.
