Seminar presentation from BETT 2011, 15/1/11
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 and early years 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.
