I am a school based speech therapist serving students in 2nd-5th grades. This is a blog to document and share materials and ideas for speech therapy using technology. My hopes are that having the blog will motivate me to be creative and make new materials using a variety of resources as well as motivate and inspire others.
If you are like me, you love using your ipad for therapy. However, there are times when one app just doesn't do it for a group with a variety of goals. One of the great things about the new iOS 7 update is the improved multi-tasking feature that includes the open app preview. All I have to do is open the apps I would like to work with during the session. Then you just double bump the home button to activate the multi-tasking feature and switch between the apps for each student's turn. The previews make it easy for the students to see their app and make the switch themselves as the iPad is passed around the table. I am embedding a little video of me demonstrating this feature so you can see how easy this is to do! I hope you find it useful! Remember to access your multi-tasking feature press your home button twice quickly.
