The ATapps Online iPad Licence Course is designed to equip students in Years 3-7 with Learning Difficulties/ Disabilities to make the best use of an iPad in class to maximize their potential in all subject areas. It costs just US$75 (+/- AU$100).
This newly updated and revised Online iPad Licence Course will equip students with learning difficulties/disabilities to use their iPad in almost every lesson at school, to maximise their potential and engagement in learning. If you have questions please contact me on email@example.com
BprimEd, DipEd, DipSpLD. Apple Consultants Network member. Julie has taught in schools in Zimbabwe & Australia before starting her own business teaching students with Learning Difficulties. She is passionate about supporting students with LD in the classroom to achieve potential.
"Julie is an expert in the field of assistive technologies and a champion of the cause in meeting the challenges of dyslexia. As a family with a dyslexic child, Julie has helped us successfully navigate through a daunting myriad of apps to select those most appropriate for our son in meeting the challenges he faces both inside and outside the classroom. Julie has opened out eyes to a suite of technologies that have been created specifically for dyslexia and shown us how Cooper can leverage off them to support his current and future needs. Cooper enjoys using I Read Write, Audio note and more recently Explain Everything. Cooper finds the lessons with Julie, fun, interesting, and interactive. After years of struggling to read and write, these apps have given him a sense of confidence that has until recently eluded him. Tasks including homework, previously seen as a struggle are now less challenging for both parent and child and have translated into him achieving more in the classroom."
In this first lesson you will see 6 short videos where you will learn more about the Online iPad Licence Course and how it will help you use the iPad at school. You will learn to create folders and contacts and activate Text to Speech so that the iPad can read information to you.
Learn how to activate Text-to-Speech with Speak Screen to read eBooks.
Watch this video to learn the basics of Claro PDF
This lesson will show you the next step in using Claro PDF- to access image PDF's.
Notability is one of my favourite apps! We can use it to record our voice to plan assignments and we don't need to spell one word. We then can listen to it as many times as we need to as a prompt when we are writing.
This is one of my favourite apps! You will learn how to record what you know about a topic with your voice- and write 'annotations' at the same time. In this lesson we will import a PDF worksheet and then record on top of that with our voice.
Here are videos of two different apps we can use for help with writing projects: Spell Better and iRead Write. You only need to learn to use one of them.
If we don't use it- we will lose it! That's why revision of what we have learned is so important. Let's go over how we use Notability, Text Prediction and Claro PDF. Practice makes perfect!
Here we will learn how to take a photo of a worksheet, have it scanned, and access it in Claro PDF. We can have it read to us if we need it, and we can write or record our answers!
We are going to create a book in Creative Book Builder. This lesson uses Notability and text prediction to plan and write our content for the book. Remember to use the text prediction in a way that builds your neurons!
Learn how to add photos, videos and music to your eBook.
Finally publish and share your eBook with family and friends.
Let's revise what we have learned so far.
Explain Everything is a very clever app that allows us to create tutorials to teach ourselves different things, projects, videos and presentations. We will create a project using our content from our eBook.
We will complete our Explain Everything project in this lesson and learn to create and edit a video within the app.
Become a master at Explain Everything
This is the last lesson of the course: well done! Your task is to create a project of your own choice using the skills you have learned. Plan your project in Notability, write in the text prediction, get photos from Flickr and create an eBook or Explain Everything project.
Well done, you have finished the online iPad licence course! Here is your final task: a quiz to check you have mastered the iPad. Score 75% to be awarded a certificate.
