I would need iPads that have age appropriate social media applications. There are several apps to choose from that allow for safe and secure social networking for young children. Skid-e Kids and Togetherville are two options I have found. There are also social game apps that allow for the children to meet and talk with other young children in a safe and controlled way. They would be able to learn that people can interact through technology, social networking can also help with writing skills and fine motor skills by typing and pushing the small buttons. Lesson three-What can Touch Do? : This last lesson will also include the iPad and requires the same set-up. There is an app on iPads called the Sensory Light Box. This light box would be a controlled activity in which the entire class would open the app together and would do the same actions. We would all together see what swiping, touching, and tilting would cause the app to do. After each touch or tilt we would discuss how everything reacted. This activity would also engage visual stimulation and eye tracking skills. Working together as a class would also engage communication skills and group effort.
