Achieving Ambitious Goals with the iPad in Special Education
When equipped with appropriate software, the iPad has been shown to be an excellent substitute for traditional augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) (sv: alternativ och kompletterande kommunikation, AKK) devices. However, the flexibility and power of the iPad allow for using it in ways that go well beyond single-focus AAC tools. We will see how to use the SAMR model to create frameworks and processes for designing and reaching these more ambitious goals. We will also examine a related research framework, developed in the context of a project for speech-language support for children with autism.
