Supporting Special Needs Students with the iPad
This workshop will demonstrate the accessibility features and settings that are available on the iPad. See how to turn on the voice over command on the screen, zooming capability, image and language keyboards, assistive touch, and more. We will also explore numerous free and paid apps that provide support and assistance with language and communication, skill development, and learning in different content areas. The audience for this workshop is new and experienced iPad users.
Kristine Scharaldi is an experienced teacher and outstanding staff developer in the area of technology integration in K-12 classrooms, who is back to Kean by popular demand.
Kristine’s workshops will be held from 8:30-2:00 in Hutchinson Hall Room 307-308 at the Kean University, Union Campus. A continental breakfast will be served and participants may bring a brown bag lunch.
We strongly encourage registrants to “bring your own device” (BYOD), but some iPads are available, if needed. Note that workshop sessions are limited to 20-25 registrants to allow for ongoing interactive hands-on experiences.
