Meet the iPad: adaptive technology at its finest! Educators will discover how iPads are changing the world of Special Education as we know it. Learn how teachers can utilize the iPad to accommodate students with disabilities and differentiate instruction for all students. As a special educator and educational technology enthusiast, I have seen first hand how technology can change the lives of students with disabilities. Adaptive technology can provide students with access to learning opportunities, information, resources, organization tools, communication, and emotional/behavioral supports that can dramatically improve their lives.
Special educators and parents are raving about the newest adaptive technology device: the iPad. The iPad is not only engaging, but it also offers universal design and accessibility for many students in a way that is not only fun, but also socially acceptable. The iPad isn’t just changing special education, it is changing education as we know it.
