These amazing people have just completed the 8 week INSYNC program ‘Developing iPad skills to meet individual needs’. Everyone was impressed with learning new skills for using iPads and the certificates were awarded to each person during the week following their last session with Kristi.
Daniel knew some things about iPads and has now learnt that the iPad can be shown on a large screen. Daniel has taken photos on his iPad and made up a story about Aliens in Bega. This was put together in the story app ‘Pictello’.
David has learnt how to use an iPad for playing games like tic tac toe, jigsaw puzzles and finding objects. David can also use his iPad to do this independently at home.
Carolyn was a new iPad user and took to it very well. Her strong points were drawing, colouring in, tic tac toe with others and jigsaw puzzles. She also enjoyed viewing and sharing photos from her recent holiday to Queensland. Carolyn made a collage of these photos which will soon be printed and placed in her unit.
Sarah continued enjoying doing puzzles; however, she also enjoyed playing an app called ‘musical paint’. Sarah could finger paint and play tunes at the same time, then sign her name on the painted masterpiece. Very creative!
Colleen created a story book and included recent photos of her holiday to Mogo and Mogo zoo. Colleen’s voice was recorded explaining the photos. She also learnt how to do a jigsaw puzzle completely independently and can play games like tic tac toe with others. Coleen was also happy to listen to her favourite singer ‘Pink’ while she used her iPad.
Facilitator Kristi Sproates said “it was very rewarding to work with each individual and assist them to meet their individual needs when developing iPad skills and most of all I believe that everyone had a FUN time doing so.”
