Aronin, Sara; Floyd, Kim K.
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v45 n4 p34-39 Mar-Apr 2013
This article highlights how STEM concepts and careers can be presented and taught in inclusive preschool settings utilizing the iPad. While in small, mixed-ability groups, preschoolers were provided brief instruction with apps focused on pre-engineering, math, and science content to access their ability to interact with the technology and gain an understanding of STEM concepts and careers. This article discusses the usability of iPad apps, learner outcomes, teacher perceptions, and implications for practice. (Contains 1 table.)
