Many of our teachers use a mobile device to assist in the learning process. In these instances, the device is directed by the teacher and used to support students in a number of ways. Here are some examples of classroom support usage:
- Using a variety of data collection applications, many of our teachers are able to quantify specific target behaviors in an efficient manner. This data collection yields a number of powerful outcomes including specific behavior frequency, charts analyzing antecedent-behavior-consequences, and others features that greatly aid in behavior plans and programming.
Visual Timers - Visual timers have long been an effective way to show a student how long a specific activity will last. With mobile devices, these visual timers can be used as applications within a number of setting. The portability and ease of use makes these items a popular application within our classrooms.
Social Narrative Programming - Whether you are working on priming a student or teaching them a specific task analysis, many social narrative programs can effectively use photographs to organize students.
Visual Scheduling - Many students benefit from picture schedules. There are presently multiple applications that assist with organizing the student throughout their day.
