Use Your iPod or iPad as a Switch!

This great new app from Attainment allows you to use your iPod, iPhone or iPad as a switch (or two switches) to access programs on your computer!  (Works with Mac and PC.)

This app needs you to use a wireless connection (wifi or ad hoc) and the free Switch Helper App for it to work.  (I am hoping that they add Bluetooth too! Since getting a wifi network allow access in a school can be tough.)

On iPhone:
Attainment Switch - Attainment Company

On iPad:

School Nurse Day

Chances are as a teacher in this field that you have a classroom or program nurse.
This is your reminder to celebrate your nurse on Wednesday, May 11, 2011!
Or you can have your kids stick band-aids all over themselves, snap a photo and frame it with this Shel Silverstein poem:

I have a Band-Aid on my finger,
One on my knee, and one on my nose,
One on my heel, and two on my shoulder,
Three on my elbow, and nine on my toes.
Two on my wrist, and one on my ankle,
One on my chin, and one on my thigh,

Four on my belly, and five on my bottom,
One on my forehead, and one on my eye.
One on my neck, and in case I might need ‘em
I have a box full of thirty-five more.
But oh! I do think it’s sort of a pity
I don’t have a cut or a sore!

Free Switch Progression Road Map

Inclusive Technology is offering a free e-book called The Switch Progression Road Map.  It is a guide to teaching switch use in incremental portions.  The Road Map is useful in the way all task analysis are useful; you can assess to pinpoint where each child is, create goals and benchmarks and plan future interventions.  I should note that their is a fair amount of shilling of Inclusive Technology products in the guide, but it is very useful none-the-less.
