Enhance learning with Accessibility Features on iPad
What are the Accessibility Features?
Powerful assistive features can be found in the general settings of any iPad to completely change how an individual interacts with the device. With practical and flexible features, pupils can complement their vision, hearing, motor skills, learning and literacy. They can create, learn, work and play more easily than ever.
WHERE TO FIND THE ACCESSIBILITY FEATURES?
YOUR FREE RESOURCE FOR TEACHERS
Each child has different educational needs. But how to cater to all of the needs in your class? Discover how you can use the iPad to meet the needs of any learner. This Teachers Guide focusses on five general needs (Visual Impairments, Attention Deficit, Poor Fine Motor Skills, Hearing Impairments and Dyslexia). In doing so, it explores the impact the Accessibility features can make in the classroom.

‘Guided Access’ enables teachers to lock children into apps and customise the user experience. This is done in a couple of ways. Firstly, a teacher can turn off any of the physical iPad buttons for an allotted time frame. Secondly, by drawing a finger over certain onscreen elements of an app you can ‘grey them out’. Essentially, this means that they are no longer tappable by the learner in question.
