Slide to unlock: unlocking learning potential using iPads with Early Years and Primary pupils with Additional Support Needs
This was a presentation given to the Scottish Learning Festival in Glasgow, 21/9/11
There is a different version of this presentation on Slideshare with an audio track available.
Louis is a three year old with mobility and speech difficulties who has been using touch technology for a year. Louis has successfully used educational apps on both an iPad and an iPod. He communicates using both an iPad and a more traditional alternative and augmentative communications device.
This session will explore how tablet technology such as iPads can be used with pre-school, early years and primary pupils, in particular with pupils with additional support needs such as Louis. We will look at how schools can use iPads with communications applications such as Proloquo2Go as an alternative to heavy, bulky and extremely expensive AAC devices. We will also look at other educational applications that would be suitable with young people for developing literacy, numeracy and creativity skills.
