Moving to Digital Delivery
iPads in Context What Makes iPads work.isf
Moving Lessons to Digital Where and how will lessons be stored? Digital storage allows lessons to move from printed word into media, music, photos, video many teachers are just starting to explore these options. Offsite vs. onsite storage Where and how will students access their digital work and turn in completed assignments?
If the assignment is digital, why?
What does this student need the technology to do for him?
Is this the tool for the job?
One Tool May Not Fit All Needs iPads are wonderful tools, but so are computers, whiteboards, document cameras, tablets, Google chrome books, netbooks, But they are only great if they get used
Thinking about Portables iPad: Video modeling, Audio workstation, Voice recognition, Read2go, PDF Connoisseur, Large app choice, Interface with smartboard Android: Swype, Go Read, Multiple Apps Google Chrome Book: Integration with online storage, Flash based online games, Writing Work Station, Math Extensions Netbook: Project production, some software added, internet flash based
Match Task to Tool iPad Chrome book Android Web book Video modeling Writing a document Texting with SWYPE Constructing a power point
Typical AT Tasks Reading Writing Organizing tasks Computation Behavior Communication Visual or audio support
What does this student need the iPad to do for him? Is the iPad the right device or?
Student SETT Student: Poor reader, decoder, writer, behavioral moments of doubt Environment: Classroom, Specials, LD Room Task: Digital Writing Work Station with audio feedback, NIMAS qualifier Tool: Needs..?
Consideration Student: When can we train him, what apps do we need to train, what are we going to start with Environment: Who will make and where will digital work be stored? There is no printer how do we turn in assign? What teachers are on board? How do we move assignment from teacher to student and back? How do we work offline? How can I have worksheets read and annotate in the same space? How do we cue the student to use the device in regular classes when he doesnt want to look different Task: What apps will meet needs for reading and writing Tool: iPad: Is this the best tool?
Reading Task: audio/ text read support Turned on speak selection, taught reader feature Added App Read2go to link with Bookshare materials Added Learning Ally Audio App for Learning Ally materials Worked with teachers to post daily materials on line Added app PDF Connoisseur to read and annotate worksheets and interface with teacher site and Google docs Use app image to text to OCR surprises

Voice Dream export highlights feature is especially helpful, among other features. There is an update to Voice Dream Reader. It is a super update. I feel that this is absolutely the best reading app for the iPad. I now choose to read all my Bookshare books with this app. There are a great selection of new voices. I particularly like the Will voice. There is the Kenny voice. Some students like hear a kids voice read. You can also now export your highlights. All on all a great app.
