IPad Keyboards

My students need 3 iPad keyboards.

My Students

Today's learners are being challenged to incorporate technology, such as iPads, into their daily learning.

My 3rd-4th grade students have a variety of abilities, some with significant challenges in regards to fine motor skills.

They all have individual education plans which determine what services and support they need to access their education efficiently and thoroughly. Every student is unique in their abilities and their needs.

My Project

In my special education class, I focus on teaching keyboarding skills for both functional and occupational reasons. With the recent increase in iPads being used in the classroom, I am concerned that the "one-finger" touch-typing on the iPad screen will contradict the keyboarding lessons on which we have been working diligently. I want to encourage the use of my students' classroom iPads while continuing to develop their keyboarding skills.

Providing iPad keyboards will allow my students to use their iPads in their general education classes, while continuing to refine their fine motor skills.

As technology in the classroom increases, it is important for me, as a special educator, to embrace these changes and continually develop new ways for my students to access their education.
