This project will give twelve, special education children access to reading books, creating their own book reports utilizing the programs Pages and Keynote and the chance to publish their own books utilizing iBook. In addition, students will utilize the iPads for the online portions of our school's reading program. Children develop as readers and writers by interacting with many factors in their environment. Children become literate in multiple ways through their experiences, and with their families and larger environment. Children’s experiences at home, in their community, and in early childhood classrooms, form their knowledge about reading, writing, and other literate behaviors. These experiences with print, the pathways to literacy, are known as multiple literacies. The multiple literacies of children in the twenty-first century is influenced by the increasing importance of digital technology. Young children’s increasing immersion in interactive media is necessary to foster and strengthen literacy in young learners. Consequently, to ensure children’s literacy development completely, the definition of reading and writing must be broadened to include multimedia and computer-based print. My students suffer literacy deficits from a myriad of conditions including learning disabilities, unstable home life and trauma that has caused behavioral incidences and significant time away from academic classrooms. Children who are delayed readers find reading on the screen engaging and reluctant writers find the experience of writing on an iPad less intimidating and more motivating than a blank page. The addition of iPads will allow our students to read books, write using several programs, and do further research about what they are learning about. The motivation of iPads in the classroom as a tool of literacy will encourage reading, writing and researching.
