Paths to Literacy

for students who are blind or visually impaired

Using the iPad and magnetic letters to compose and share stories

Using and iPad in the dark

This activity from Blennz Learning Library uses the storykit app on the iPad to enable a student to record her voice, and add pictures and text to a spoken story.  Using oral language skills can provide a welcome alternative to pencil and paper or braillewriters for some children.  This use of the iPad offers a wonderful opportunity for the child in this activity to share her ideas with her peers.
