Can an iPad provide support for students in completing reading tasks? Participants will have the opportunity to explore features built into an iPad, and download and explore iPad apps that support some typical classroom setting demands. We will look at a decision making process to help participants select appropriate tools and discuss how to incorporate these technologies into the classroom and how to assess their effectiveness. Finally, we will dig into locating and creating accessible educational materials. Resources will also be provided to help participants continue in their iPad journey. This training is intended for general education teachers, special education teachers, teaching assistants, related services staff, technology coaches, and instructional coaches.
