I apologize for the lack of information lately.  This person who I will refer to as “February Sandi” has been in charge for approximately 24 days.  Nobody likes February Sandi.  She is totally preoccupied with griping about weather and a general lack of color in her outside world.  Apparently, she isn’t a very good blogger during that month either.  Fortunately, regular PATINS Sandi has managed to ditch her for a few minutes so that a new Rapid Fire Blog can be published!

Here are some of the interesting things that have come through my space recently!

From Marcee Wilburn  via many sources

App of the Week:  Via QIAT Listserve and Diane Brauner

 Math Melodies App Logo

Math Melodies is a free ACCESSIBLE math app created for all children but specifically designed for students with visual impairments. The game has fun stories, math activities and lots of motivating sounds. This is a great example of how math concepts can be reinforced on the iPad. The developers, who are Italian, are open to suggestions and are already incorporating ideas on how to modify the app to better meet the needs of students with visual impairments in the US.

This app is currently geared for 1st – 3rd grade students. The app has been funded through crowd sourcing; currently the team is crowd sourcing in order to raise the necessary funds to add 4th and 5th grade level math activities. If you have suggestions about the current app or suggestions about math activities for 4th and 5th graders, especially math activities that are challenging for students with visual impairments, please contact me or Math Melodies directly.

Do you like Math Melodies? If so, please go to the App store and give a review. Again, this will support these developers and might even encourage other developers to include accessibility features in their apps!

Please share this post and support the efforts of app developers who strive to create accessible apps!

A big thanks to EveryWare Technologies for developing Math Melodies!

Have some fun!

In these times of school improvement, accountability, and common core standards, the business of educating has become serious business.  However, it is important to remember we are working with children.  Not little learning machines.  Each day when they wake up, children do not think, “I am so looking forward to learning whether I use prepositions correctly!”  They also don’t wake up thinking, “I know this is boring, but I will soldier on because I know that I will be more successful in life if I attend to the content that I will be more than fortunate to have presented to me today.”  Face it, if that was the case the more than 3 million public school teachers in the United States could take a permanent personal day.  Those sweet things could stay at home and teach themselves!  In general, students don’t mind coming to school.  Many come on days they are expelled.  Others hang out there after the day is over.  The environment is great!  This is where their friends are.  They are open to the opportunity to learn.  The teacher’s job is to guide the students toward acquiring the knowledge that our society feels is necessary.  So, if we would like them to choose some of what we are serving, we may want to make it more palatable to them.  Play is the earliest language of learning.   Whenever possible, play or what looks like play is a great way to engage our students in taking a chance on a new activity.

While enticing our students to “play” with an iPad is not a hard task, some of the things that we are asking our students with special needs to do with the iPad are far from playing.  Speech to text is opening up the world of writing to many students, but the actual act of speaking to the iPad or computer is kind of uncomfortable.  Having to practice speaking “correctly” and having it “learn” your voice is something that bores and irritates many students.  So, let’s play!  I just found out that Siri can be used to:  ”Flip a coin”, “Roll the Dice” (always a pair of dice and she tells you what each is) and “Pick a number between 1 and 20”.  For the random number you can tell her between 1 and whatever.  Or you can just ask her to pick a number.  You will get other number and random number related information as well.

Here are some more:

  • Boxers or Briefs?
  • Knock Knock
  • What is the best phone?
  • Tell me about yourself Siri.
  • What is the meaning of Life?

My favorite thing to ask her is “Who let the dogs out?”.

For a list of more fun things to ask try this post from “The Cult of Mac”.  Many of these questions have more than one funny answer.  With the promise of receiving a funny response, the student may be more willing to practice their speaking.

Information and Opportunities!

Speaking of Kids… Dec. 3: 11:45-12noon: “iMovie Trailers as a Flexible Response Method.”
Tune in as 10 year old Ella demonstrates LIVE on the internet, the process of using the iMovie app on an iPad as a means of flexible response to instruction, aka. UDL Principle #2! Ella will show a sample movie trailer that she’s created by herself and will then walk viewers through the how-to of creating their own or having their students create their own. Ella says, “these movie trailers can be used for kids to show what they learned or to replace a normal type of project or assignment in school.”
Follow this link at 11:45am EST on Dec. 3 to watch it live for 15 minutes!
or type http://bit.ly/patinstv into your browser.  It is best to be on line at least 5 minutes prior to the start of the program.

If you are not yet registered for the second day of the “PATINS State Conference 2013 Overflow” event, you
CAN still register here until November 30! 

Dec. 5 will feature Dr. Loui Lord Nelson & Jason Carroll.

Dr. Loui Lord Nelson and Jason Carroll are both experienced and sought-after presenters & trainers in the world of UDL and accessible curricula. Dr. Nelson is an Educational Consultant specializing in Universal Design for Learning and just recently completed a post-doctoral fellowship with Boston College and CAST as well as published a book on UDL, “Design and Deliver.” Jason Carroll is an educational consultant with extensive international and national presentation experience and expertise ranging from UDL to specific software tools and more!

In the morning, Dr. Nelson will present “Taking your first steps with UDL: Acknowledging variability”

In the afternoon, Jason will take the UDL concept from the morning and expand on the student engagement piece with specific tools and concepts. The ability to capture learners’ attention in the classroom is one of the most powerful tools in a teacher’s toolkit. With the rapid growth of low/no cost technological tools, the potential to quickly engage students is more reachable than ever. When combined with strategic instruction, desired student outcomes are achieved. In this practical session, Jason will share a variety of tools, apps, and strategies that can be immediately implemented in inclusive and resource settings!

…Speaking of Closed-Captioning, did you see this headline from NPR’s All Tech Considered?

 

New Closed-Captioning Glasses Help Deaf Go Out To The Movies

 

The article states, “By the end of this month (May, 2013), Regal Cinemas plans to have distributed closed-captioning glasses to 6,000 screens across the country.

Sony Entertainment Access Glasses are sort of like 3-D glasses, but for captioning. The captions are projected onto the glasses and appear to float about 10 feet in front of the user. They also come with audio tracks that describe the action on the screen for blind people, or they can boost the audio levels of the movie for those who are hard of hearing.”

Follow this link http://www.npr.org/blogs/alltechconsidered/2013/05/12/183218751/new-closed-captioning-glasses-help-deaf-go-out-to-the-movies to read the entire article.

Some quick Summer News

Posted by: | June 20, 2013 | No Comment |

R.J. Cooper, that tech guy for special needs (his words) passed on the following link to some switch friendly cause/effect apps for the iPad.  http://www.sensoryapphouse.com  They look very interesting and if you have tried to find good apps that are switch friendly, you know that it can sometimes be difficult.  If you are not familiar with R.J. Cooper or his materials his web page is http://www.rjcooper.com/

 

Also, from Ike Presley this link to the May, 2013 issue of the Braille Monitor.

If you are involved with an educational institution that is considering using the Amazon Kindle I strongly recommend that you read the article below and share it with as many people as possible. The article is in the May, 2013 issue of the Braille Monitor, https://nfb.org/images/nfb/publications/bm/bm13/bm1305/bm130508.htm.  Ike”

 

Finally, what do you think of this?  Disability Scope reported in it’s June 18th Email News Letter, “HBO Documentary Follows Beauty Queens With Special Needs”  This link will take you to the article, http://www.disabilityscoop.com/2013/06/17/hbo-beauty-queens/18173/  The “Miss You Can Do It” pageant is in it’s 10th year and is for girls to women from age 4-25.  For more information, their web site is, http://www.missyoucandoit.com The HBO wil be airing the documentary on Monday, June 24th at 9:00 pm EST.     The HBO site for more information is http://www.hbo.com/documentaries/miss-you-can-do-it  What do you think about this pageant?  I am going to watch and form an opinion.  Please let me know yours!

Switching it up!

Posted by: | April 12, 2013 | No Comment |

There is a new switch access device for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch from RSL Steeper in the PATINS library.  The Pererro is very small, but has some great features (per RSL Steeper)

  • Works with almost any VoiceOver enabled app
  • Plug & Play
  • Two scan modes; Auto Increment & Press to Increment, enabling you to continue using your preferred scanning method
  • Direct input so no Bluetooth battery drain
  • Powers directly from your device
  • 3.5mm mono jack socket for universal switch input
  • ‘Charge through’ ability to charge your device without disconnecting
  • Just 36 × 29 × 9 mm

By downloading the free Pererro app (iTunes Store) you can customize the features and settings so that when the Pererro is moved from device to device it will interact with the app to apply individualized settings.

A couple of teachers and I tried it on an iPad and had success in navigating both on the home screens and within some apps.  If it sounds like something you would like to try, contact your PATINS coordinator.  We have them to lend out!

Did your district receive a special ed improvement grant?  Contact your Coordinator regarding your specific training needs.

See you at the EXPO!

Productivity is one of those words thrown around in society that act like a non-specific band-aid for fixing whatever is wrong.  If we increase student productivity…  Teachers need to use their time more productively…  and so on.  Sometimes increasing productivity requires increasing stimulation.  While researching this week’s tip I came across the focus@will site.  [email protected]    The site streams music that is picked to increase productivity.  It has tips running along the bottom, and 8 different genres of music to run in the background.  Listening to music without lyrics works really well for me.  The trick in a classroom is to find a music style that suits the students that need it while not disturbing the ones that don’t.  In this way it becomes yet another tool in your UDL tool box!

Focus at Will Screen Shot

This is what I was listening to while writing.

I started out researching “SpeakIt”, a free app on the Chrome Web Store.  For those using the web browser Chrome, once installed, this app will translate all highlighted text to speech while on the internet.  SpeakIt adds a speaker button to the right of the bookmark star just outside of the URL address box on the Chrome browser.  The user just needs to highlight the selection to be spoken and press the speaker symbol.  The pictured box will appear and read.  To get this app, go to https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/home  search SpeakIt in the search window and follow the instructions.  While I would not recommend this app for all text to speech needs, it is free, easy to download and can be used in some non-essential ways.  One of my favorites is for proofreading.  I will let the computer read what I have written while I listen for content.

So how did one thing lead to the other?  I pulled up this article http://edudemic.com/2013/04/cycle-of-productivity/ ”This Is The Modern Cycle of Productivity” by Katie Lepi on Edudemic.  I was testing SpeakIt for this post.  It is a quick fun article and lead me to focus@will.  Try the app on the article and you will notice that the graphic will not read.  That is because it is just a picture of the original graphic.  This is an issue that has been discussed and will continue to be discussed when looking at truly accessible reading material.

Don’t forget that it is Autism Awareness Month.  The Appy Mall as well as Appolicious have been listing several free and reduced autism apps!

See you at the PATINS Tech Expo!

Zombie Apocalypse!

Posted by: | March 31, 2013 | No Comment |

In the case of a zombie apocalypse it would be important to have a stockpile of things you would need to survive.  The school year is no different.  Time and money are limited commodities.  According to apple.com there are over 300,000 *apps.  It is getting hard to sort through them.  There are several ways to search for the app you need.  Here are some sites that are categorizing and rating apps (android too) that can help you save time finding what you need.

Now that you have found them it is time to start stockpiling.  Once you start collecting and trying apps on your own you do not need to keep them all on your device.  If they are free and look like something you may need, download it.  iTunes stores every app you purchase, even the free ones.  Delete apps that aren’t being used currently, and go back to the iTunes store and re-download them later.  Apps can go on “sale”.  Sometimes they are free for a limited time.  Get them then, and look at them later.
The next step is to start keeping your own list.  More on that later!

17 Days until PATINS Tech Expo!

Check out the CIESC Newsletter here:  http://www.ciesc.k12.in.us/

Let me know some of your favorite sites for searching for apps!  I know I missed some good ones.

See you at the Expo!

Did you know that there are 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays in March this year?  A Facebook “friend” sent me a message that this phenomenon would not happen again for 823 years.  That just is not true.  Any month with 31 days will have 3 consecutive days that occur 5 times within that month.  The next time March will do this is in the year 2019.  Hmm, that doesn’t seem like 823 years.  Not even in dog years.  Internet sites like Snopes www.snopes.com and Hoax-Slayer www.hoax-slayer.com are the first places I go when I want to validate information on the internet.  Skepticism is one of those skills we all need to hone as information becomes more readily available.  Many argue that our students need to be taught the ability to find information instead of memorizing facts.  Along with that ability comes the need to verify facts or to know where to find reliable confirmation of facts.

With the Tech Expo around the corner I would like to spotlight some of the “Not for Profit” organizations that will be lending their expertise to the Expo this year.

  • Achieve 3000
  • Best Buddies Indiana
  • Down Syndrome Indiana
  • Effective and Compliant IEP Resource Center
  • INDATA Project at Easter Seals
  • Indiana Center for Accessible Materials
  • Indiana Protection and Advocacy Services
  • Indiana Resource Center for Autism
  • Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired
  • Indiana Educational Resource Center
  • Indiana School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
  • Indiana Talking Book and Braille Library
  • PATINS Project
  • Refurbished Computers

As you can tell from the list this is an impressive gathering of expertise.  Another reason to attend the PATINS Tech Expo!

It doesn’t seem that the month of March is going to be easy to categorize weather-wise this year.  Hang in there, and be glad there weren’t 5 Mondays this month!

I am Sandi Mahl, PATINS SE Coordinator.  A brief explanation before the blog:   As you know Daniel McNulty, now State Project Director of PATINS usually writes this blog.  He has not given it up; however, he is no longer able to keep it as current as he would like it to be.  So, I will be taking a guest role in writing the Rapid Fire Blog.  It was an easy fill for me as I was just beginning some blogs of my own.  The Rapid Fire Blog will probably change its “voice” a bit, but you will still find the same information here.  With me blogging, the Rapid Fire Blog will become part of a trio of blogs:

 

Rapid Fire – Just the facts ma’am

smahlthoughts* – A deeper look into the topic with some personal opinions thrown in http://smahlworldindustries.edublogs.org/

smahlstuff* – A more emotional, hold hands and sing Kumbaya look at the topic with lots of opinions and a look at the twisty road my mind travels. http://smahlstuff.edublogs.org

*Any opinions or mistakes expressed on smahlthoughts and smahlstuff are all my own.  They are not endorsed by nor are they intended to reflect negatively or positively on PATINS.

 

So, let’s get started!

 

I received notification that the ICAM Dispatch blog had been posted this morning.  I love the way Martha Hammond writes so I clicked on it immediately.  In it she listed some reminders of what different PATINS people were doing and that yesterday was Digital Learning Day.  Very appropriately, I spent 90 minutes listening to an ATIA webinar on tools for storytelling in the 21st Century.  The content was great I heard about tools that I knew and tools that were new to me.  Webinars are great ways to seek information from others in the least amount of time.  While the ATIA webinars are not free, PATINS and our counterparts in Michigan (MITS) and Ohio (OCALI) have teamed up to present some great FREE webinars.  Here are some of the ones coming this month.

 

Julie Kuhn – NE Coordinator

2/14/2012, 8:30am – 9:30am EST – AT Feature Match:  Assistive Technology (AT) is not really about the Stuff.  It’s about knowing the student, what’s required and what the desired end result is. This presentation will show you how to get where you need to go.

To register:    http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/AT_Feature_Match_Registration_2-7-2013

 

Martha Wells Hammond – ICAM Library Services Consultant

Sandi Mahl – SE Coordinator

2/14/2013, 4:00pm – 5:00pm EST – Early Childhood Indicators of Latent Print Disability:  In this training I will discuss early indicators of possible print disabilities that families may encounter as students begin reading.  This training is not a diagnostic tool, but a guideline to help families/teachers/caregivers be aware of potential problems, and to begin preparing with early interventions if problems do present. Some iPad apps with an Early Childhood focus will also be demonstrated.

To register:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NKY7P8B

 

2/19/2013, 11:45am – 12:00pm EST – PATINS TV – Another Special Guest today; our NE PATINS Coordinator Julie Kuhn provides some especially relevant insight from the perspective of an OT into positioning for access to the curriculum!

 

Barb Meier – MITS Presenter

2/21/2013, 3:15pm – 4:15pm EST – Tools to Support Students who Struggle with Math: This session examines FREE (and very low cost) tools and strategies that support student access to the curriculum. Learn about virtual manipulatives, talking calculators, and other items to support students as they access the mathematics curriculum. The focus of this webinar is on students with special needs but these tools support ALL students in the classroom.

NEW ICAM Blog Announced! Martha Hammond at the ICAM has started blogging all things AIM, NIMAS & ICAM related on Thursdays via the brand new “ICAM Dispatch.”  I think it’d be a wise decision to take 5 minutes and check it out, subscribe just like you do to this blog and leave Martha some comments, suggestions, etc.  …especially if you are a DRM or serving students with print disabilities.

 First Friday Walk For Autism:  Aug. 3.  This wonderful event helps raise awareness and funds for families in Grant County
living with autism.

Aug. 7:  PATINS Live TV Returns at 11:45am EST

Nov. 8-9: Save The Date:  PATINS 2012 State Conference!  Flyer Here: State Conf 2012 Flyer 1 CFP

ASAP: Still a little time to get your proposal in to present at the PATINS State Conference Nov. 8-9.  Contact me with questions: [email protected]

A Reminder:
Big PATINS Project Changes!

Several things have now officially changed within the PATINS Project organization that I want to make sure you’re aware of as we get closer and closer to the start of the 12-13 school year.

  1. The SE PATINS Site has moved from Madison to Columbus, IN and as you may know, Tina Jones ( SE Site Coordinator for past 17 years) has retired.  Tina will be missed by many people!  Tina’s replacement as the new SE Site Coordinator is Sandi Mahl.   The email you are currently using to reach the SE Site ([email protected]) will remain the same, but will be received by Sandi now instead of Tina Jones.  We hope you’ll help us welcome Sandi to the PATINS Team!  More on Sandi to come!  Kelli Suding will be assisting Sandi at the SE Site and Kelli’s email is: [email protected].  The new SE Physical & Mailing Address: 1200 Central Avenue, Columbus, IN 47201
  2. The NE PATINS Site has also moved, but just a couple miles down the road to the Wabash City Schools Admin Building.  I have handed over the NE Site Coordinator position Julie Kuhn!  We’re also excited to welcome Julie to the PATINS team and more details on her will also be coming soon!  Much like the SE, the NE Coordinator email will still be ([email protected]), but it will no longer come to me.  It will go only to Julie!  Brandon Culver has also transitioned out of the NE Assistant position and Emily Booth has transitioned in.  Her email is [email protected]  The new NE Physical & Mailing Address: 1101 Colerain St. Wabash, IN 46992.  After today, please don’t send anything to the old Wabash address as it will likely not reach PATINS!
  3. Vicki Hershman has also officially retired as the PATINS State Director after 17 years of dedicated service to PATINS and to Indiana’s K-12 schools.  Vicki will also be missed considerably by many and while there really is no replacing her (or Tina in the SE), I have now assumed the role of PATINS State Director.  My new email is: [email protected] and you may begin using it now.  The Central PATINS location and phone numbers will not change:  Contact Us Page Here
  4. Finally, the PATINS UDL Blog is going to be merged with this PATINS Rapid Fire Blog.  Tina has done a great job of keeping you informed with UDL related information on the UDL Blog and going forward, I plan to combine UDL, AT, AIM, Creative Ideas to Engage, Announcements, Important Information, all in this one convenient location.   So, if you were subscribed to the UDL Blog, you’ll want to make sure you’re now subscribed to this one.  Just enter your email address in the upper right-hand area of this page and click subscribe.  That way you’ll receive just the headlines each Friday in your inbox and can then decide if you want to click them for more information.

We ask that you continue to bear with us during this time of transition.  I do not anticipate any problems or delays in PATINS services to you and your colleagues, but we will have several new staff in new positions and are losing three very valuable PATINS Staff.  Vicki, Tina, and Brandon will all be missed greatly.  I am excited and very optimistic about the new staff joining us and I view this as an exciting opportunity to evolve, adapt & grow!   More details on new staff members will be coming and I hope that everyone out there will help to welcome them.  I will still blog over the summer months as much as possible and my plan is to continue blogging in this coming school year in my new role as well.
