Abstract: This Round Table session will highlight the process used to identify appropriate iPad academic tools, games, and simulations for use in a high school cross-categorical classroom. The classroom is made up of 9 students, grades 9-12, who were previously served through a co-op program and who have been returned to their district of residency. The students have low to moderate cognitive functions, with two students being identified with autism. They are taught in a self-contained classroom with access to HP laptops and iPads. The iPads are in the 3rd year of use. The teachers and District tech support staff are currently working to continue to identify appropriate learning tools for the iPad that will help students work toward academic standards in reading, language arts, writing, math, science, and social studies. Of particular interest are games and simulations that can help anchor key skills in these subject areas and tying to the Common Core State Standards.

No presider for this session.
