I've talked in the past about writing simple books with your students to help build your library (Stories in a New York Minute), what I want to talk about today is creating a digital library. iBooks has the ability to work with ePub files, which means the files can include both images, audio & video embedded in the book. I've recently started having my students create the books to include in this library. We've been using an app called Creative Book Builder ($3.99).

Educational Leadership:Working Constructively with Families:Listening to Parents of Children with Disabilities April 1996 | Volume 53 | Number 7 Working Constructively with Families Pages 61-63 A growing number of children with disabilities are becoming members of general education classes. As someone involved in teacher preparation, I am particularly interested in what teaching teams can do to build productive alliances, or strengthen existing relationships, with the parents or caregivers of these children. To explore this issue, I conducted a series of in-depth interviews with 15 families (21 parents) whose children were fully included in general education programs—mostly at the elementary level. Many of these children needed a great deal of support and modification to participate successfully in general classes.

Top Ten: Apps for children with special educational needs It’s becoming increasingly clear that iPads and iPhones have so much more to offer than the games and shopping apps that are, admit it, the hook for a lot of us.
