One solution I have been trialling in my school is to use the Android tablets to support children with specific learning needs in a hope to plug some of those gaps, (based around assessment data or IEP targets.)
The children in my class come in every morning and are provided with a morning task, be it some creative free writing, a numeracy task or maybe just some finishing off. This is a perfect time to target specific children. Before the children come in to class I set up the tablets on a table with headphones plugged in. I then target APP's for specific children's needs. On each tablet I have a free whiteboard APP that can be used just like a normal whiteboard in class. I open this on the tablet and write the child's name in big letters and then underneath will write the name of the APP that I would like them to use. This way I don't have to tell the children each morning what I would like them to do.
Phonics APP's like 'Sight Words Lite' provide a fantastic way to give children a 1:1 phonics intervention with specific focus on gaps in their phonetical awareness. I use APP's like this a lot with the children in class as it allows them to self differentiate the diagraphs or blends that the find hard and practice those.
As always, feel free to contact me for any support or other APP's that could be used in your school!
