We love the App Store. We love the bells and whistles that so many apps have built into them. But we should not forget the usefulness of the built-in features of the IPad. The camera feature of the iPad2 (and newer) may seem simple and basic, but offers the possibility of many different uses. It’s great to be able to take a picture and immediately be able to display and use that 5 x 7 image on the screen. Taking photos and having them available on the camera roll is perfect for personalizing and customizing so many other apps. The video feature allows for the creation of a permanent record. This record could serve as a model or to trace development over time of communication skills. Students enjoy being the photographer and having the opportunity to take pictures of what is meaningful to them. So take a break from the apps, smile and say cheese.
