I don’t know about you, but I get tired of long lists of apps to look at for various categories. It all takes so much time to look through and see what an app actually does!
I want someone to screen them for me and show me only the good ones!!! Forget the lists! Just Show Me the app already!!!
That’s exactly what I’m going to for you today. I have five things on my personal criteria list for a good app.
1 It has to do something worthwhile
2 It has to be easy to use
3 It has to be fun to use
4 It has to be pleasing to the eye.
5 It must answer the question, “Does this app make my life as an educator easier?”
The three apps that I have selected for you today are not only for children with special needs, but they certainly meet my personal criteria for a good app.
Take a look at the video and see what you think!
I’d like to insert a personal note here. Last night my husband and I attended The Eugene & Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award event sponsored by the Indianapolis Public Library Foundation because this year’s national award recipient is my long time dear friend, Michael Martone.
Michael hasn’t lived in Indiana for quite awhile, but he has written numerous books about Indiana and he has inspired young people all over the state to write, collaborate and support each other in their craft. The Glick family has a long history of community contributions too numerous to mention here.
What I took from this event was this.
We all have an opportunity to use the gifts we have to give back, to leave a legacy in the world whether it’s in writing books, giving back to your community, raising or educating a child with special needs or educating those who have a child with special needs in their life.
That’s why I write this blog and produce videos each week and I’m guessing that may be why you watch my videos. You want to make a difference and you want to do it the best way that you know how.
We all have a job to do and each of us have our own special way of doing it.
No one can do the job you do quite the way you do it. Remember that!
That’s what makes your contribution unique and special, just because you are you.
So keep watching, keep learning, keep doing what you do best. Your passion is what makes the difference. Just know that the work, the time investment, the effort you put in with your child now defines the legacy you create in the future.
Take care. See you next time!
