The iPad not only provides built-in accessibility options for people with a wide range of special needs, but also supports a growing collection of apps that complement these accessibility features. Other factors such as the portability of the device and its social acceptability have made the iPad a popular choice (some have called it a "game changer") for students with special needs. However, the downside to having so much choice is that it can be overwhelming for educators to choose the appropriate apps for their students. In this webinar, join Dr. Luis Perez as he focuses on frameworks to guide educators in the selection of appropriate apps for meeting the needs of all learners. He will introduce the nABLE framework for apps, which builds on the SAMR model for transforming the use of technology in the classroom, while also incorporating key Universal Design for Learning principles for addressing learning variability. Come discover ways to enhance and transform your instruction.
