Availability of free and low-cost apps for mobile devices grows exponentially. Many educators and families have turned to these less expensive tools and content hoping for a simple and affordable way to accommodate learners with special needs, especially in the general curriculum. However, we must keep already known decision-making processes in mind when designing and recommending interventions. Educators need to be careful of “magic wand syndrome”. Take care to make the fit for the learner just as you would for any other tool. This session will share a public resource wiki for guiding decisions about apps and strategies to consider for mobile device implementation for students with special needs.
