iPads for Learning Differences: Writing & Composition

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Students with learning differences often dread writing because it requires them to simultaneously use many different cognitive skills: generating and organizing ideas, producing legible text, choosing the right words, and monitoring writing mechanics.  This hands-on, beginner-level session will introduce participants to several apps that assist with brainstorming, outlining, spelling and grammar, vocabulary, speech recognition, and typing on PDF worksheets.

Prior to the session, participants will need to download and install Inspiration MapsRead&Write for iPad, and SnapType (all free).

*This is one of a four-session series that will cover a wide range of iPad features, apps, and associated strategies to assist students who learn differently.  Attend only one session or the entire track.  We strongly recommend that participants download and install certain apps in advance (most are free) and have iPads running iOS 8.x or 9.x.
