iPossibilities – Apps and Advice on Using the iPod and iPad in Special Education


I recently posted a list of assistive apps for the iPad. However, I’m no expert in this area. But I believe I’ve found one. Kate Ahern is a teacher of learners with multiple or significant special needs. She and her colleague Bonnie Dwyer have generously posted two presentation slideshows filled with apps and advice on using iPods and iPads in Special Education. She also has other resources on the page. Find the slideshows and more here.
