This project took place over 6 months, at two different area locations. By working in collaboration with Dr. Rhonda McEwen, students in special education classrooms were given the use of iPhones and iTouch devices to support their learning.
Students ranged in exceptionalties, including Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Down’s Syndrome, and Mild Intellectual Disability among others. They utilized MyVoice a mobile application, and aims to identify hand held technology, haptic feedback, visual cues, and text to speech generation can support learning, confidence and social interaction of students.
Teachers were encouraged to use MyVoice as frequently as possible in any way they saw fitting with curriculum guidelines. Logging data was captured, as well as qualitative observations and interviews with teachers. Results will be analyzed shortly.
