A spot for teachers to share their experiences with iPads in the classroom.
Saturday, 27 October 2012
This is an app we are trying with a couple of students with special needs. It looks awesome and I can see other students benefiting from it as well. Also please note the reference to the great site at the bottom of this post.
Choiceboard Creator App is a simple, free iPad app that provides the ability to present questions and answer choices with visually and audio capabilities. There is a simple method of designating which is the correct answer with an audio response provided when the correct answer is chosen by the user (clapping sound). Here are some of the features of the app as described by the developers:
Large buttons, and black/white contrast to facilitate visual attention
Box sizes are now adjustable for those who just need to see a little more clearly
Clean board design to minimize visual distraction
Space between choice buttons to avoid inadvertent hits
Customizable to 1,2,3,4 or 6 choices
Users can download their own pictures
Users can create blank boxes as distractors to suit users of all levels
Now users can preset multiple “correct answer” boxes, and download different sound files to each box – a feature that allows users to choose their favorite music with just a tap
Other than image files, users can now type text into the choice box – use this feature to teach sight words, letter, number recognition
Versatile application that can be used to create curriculum content to promote cognitive and literacy skills
Ease of use. Intuitive interface allows user to set up activities in minutes
Allows users to create multiple pages for each “game” or activity
