Teachers Tackle Technology With iPad Bootcamp

ROGERS, AR — Easter Seals Arkansas hosted a hands-on workshop Thursday to show Special Education teachers the best ways to incorporate technology into their every day lessons. 

Thanks to a $25,000 grant from Comcast, teachers and therapists were trained to use iPads as an assistive technology device for students with disabilities.

Speech Language Pathology Consultant Jeffrey Adams said the technology can be used in several subjects, including reading, writing and math. “It would enable them to do math in different ways that would make math accessible for them when otherwise they couldn’t do it with a pencil and paper, but they could do it on the iPad.” he said.

Adams says iPads have transformed technology in the classroom dramatically over the past four or five years, including for students with disabilities. “A variety of applications would allow teachers to help their students find their voice,” he said.
