New Wheel of Apps for learners with Complex Needs

The Wheel of Apps is not comprehensive, but attempts to identify relevant, useful apps and to categorise them into the areas where we feel an iPad can be a useful tool for learning and teaching. Look at the outer ring for the broad category in red, which in some cases is sub-divided in the next ring. This will help you to select the most appropriate apps.
