IPads for Learners with Dyslexia and Literacy Difficulties


iPads and tablets have considerable potential for use by pupils with dyslexia as very portable note-taking and writing devices, for reading electronic text and eBooks, and for accessing and creating multimedia learning resources. They also have considerable appeal for many young people on account of their ‘cool’ factor. Consequently, there is a great deal of interest and discussion regarding the use of iPads in schools. Is this justified? Are iPads and other mobile devices living up to the hype? Which apps work well and which aren’t up to scratch?

Learning Outcomes:

  • Ability to use key apps
  • Understanding of issues around management of devices and apps in schools
