iPads and children with special learning needs: A survey of teachers
MetadataShow full item record
Twelve special education teachers who have instructional experience using iPads with children with special needs completed a survey that queried their practices and perceptions. In general, teachers were positive about the value of iPads for children with special needs, particularly for children with autism, attention deficits and limitations of fine motor control. Special education teachers reported most frequently using iPads to promote student language and literacy skills, although mathematics learning activities were also commonly reported. Enhanced student motivation was the most frequently reported benefit of using tablet computers in school followed by instructional planning advantages. Tablet computers appear to have the potential to be an essential aspect of individual program plans.
