  • From the maker of Geometer’s Sketchpad, Key Curriculum Press, comes a new geometry app, Sketchpad Explorer. If you’ve ever used Geometer’s Sketchpad, you’ll feel right at home on Sketchpad Explorer. To completely oversimplify, Geometer’s Sketchpad is a piece of software that allows you to do geometric constructions. Create a rectangle by defining four right angles, the drag the corner with the mouse, and you can see an infinite number of examples of rectangles. However, if you just draw four segments that look like a rectangle, when you drag the corner, you’ll see that the shape will change into an number of quadrilaterals that are not rectangles.Sketchpad Explorer is not a full featured version of Geometer’s Sketchpad. You can’t create the constructions or “sketches” from scratch with the app. What you can do is fully interact with sketches that were created in Geometer’s Sketchpad. The app comes preloaded with sketches on the topics of Elementary Mathematics, Geometry Constructions, Ellipse Constructions, Dynagraphs, and Slope. You can also download a large number of sketches that have been uploaded to Key Curriculum’s Sketch Exchange Community site. The interface has been designed to make this extremely easy to do. You are briefly redirected to Safari to find the sketch you want, but then bumped right back into the app automatically once you have downloaded your sketch.
  • The following apps are specifically for students with disabilities, but can be used with any students.
  • There’s a disconnect that happens when symbols are used instead of real images, and the user’s workload is doubled because he or she must first learn the real-life objects for functional independence and then the symbols that represent those objects. Our new Functional Communication System utilizes high-definition pictures, audio and video taken from the real world. Our video library has over 4,000 images and videos to choose from, and more are added every day. You can also use the capabilities of the iPad to completely customize the application for the user – use the camera to shoot your own pictures and video and use the built-in microphone to record your own audio.There are 42 apps within the Functional Skill System. They offer 4 as samplers.Life Skills: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/life-skills-sampler/id375413881?mt=8Literacy Skills: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/literacy-skills-sampler/id375422643?mt=8Social Skills: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/social-skills-sampler/id375425299?mt=8designed to teach and reinforce basic social skills critical for independent living.  - 80 videosWork Skills:http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/work-skills-sampler/id375427343?mt=8designed to teach and reinforce basic signs and words critical for independent living. 80 videos
