As a special education/life skills teacher, I am always on the lookout for ways to integrate real world instruction into the classroom as much as possible. Nowadays, almost everybody has a phone on them. I have often noticed that many of my students don't know how to use basic features on their devices like setting up an alarm, speech transcription, or even checking the weather for the day! I have created this packet to help scaffold students' use of their iPads and/or iPhones in a functional, real world sense.
Before you purchase, please make sure your student(s) have access to either an iPad or an iPhone so they can follow along with the visuals and prompts provided
The skills practiced in this packet would also be great to include for IEP goal writing. Whether you use them for independent living or adaptive/self-help skills, you cannot get much more functional than these!
How I Use This In My Classroom
I print these worksheets in color and laminate them. I then put them in a binder and make a technology based center that students rotate through throughout the month. I usually work 1:1 with students using the basic level of the visual directions. I then have paras work with students in small groups practicing the more detailed visual directions to establish mastery. Students work on one skill at a time. I like to use a variety of these skills in IEP goals as they are simple to assess and directly aligned to post-secondary goals.
- Setting Up An Alarm (2 different sets of visual directions and a practice prompt)
- Creating To Do Lists (2 different sets of visual directions and a practice prompt)
- Getting Directions (2 different sets of visual directions and a practice prompt)
