5 Assistive modes you never knew existed on your iPad. Words by Sean Douglas For Dyslexics, tablet computers (the iPad in particular) can be a great alternative to desktop or laptop computing. The form factor, clean interface and their ability to be used almost anywhere, make tablets a great companion for any dyslexic. I now use my iPad more and more, while my laptop looks on like a green-eyed monster, as I cradle my iPad and stroke its smooth glassy face. Even though tablets help us stay connected and productive in any location, there are many issues Dyslexics face that can’t be alleviated by using an iPad. Many third party apps are available to help make the iPad more Dyslexic friendly, but after meeting Darryl “the iPad Guru” Bedford, at the Bett Show earlier this year, we realised there is a whole world of accessibility built right in to our iOS devices.

Coin Tower - Kids' Science Stack the coins into an even and straight tower. Use the dinner knife to swipe a coin out from the bottom of the tower. See how many coins you can swipe out before the tower topples! The key to safely removing a coin from from the bottom of a stack comes from friction and inertia. Inertia comes from Newton's first law of motion, stating that an object in motion (or at rest) tends to stay in motion (or at rest). This means that the balanced coins wants to stay in their stacked position, in the spot they are stacked.

Technology Tools for Teaching & Learning Used wisely, technology empowers students to take responsibility for their own learning. In Leonardo’s Laptop, Ben Shneiderman provides teachers with a powerful framework, Collect-Relate-Create-Donate (CRCD), for designing student-centered learning opportunities using computers.
