can create your own bookmarks within Expedition.
The ShowMe App allows the user to record annotations along with
voice right on the iPad, essentially turning the iPad into an interactive,
recordable "whiteboard."
This is the perfect tool for hosting presentations and conducting

without having to resort to using a wireless keyboard and a mouse
The app is universal and works over Wi-Fi. The beauty of eClicker is
that students can use any Wi-Fi device with a browser to interact with

Picture Scheduler is tasks organizer for people with disabilities.
We have been asked if our app Audio Notes, could be more
optimized for creating and organizing personal tasks for individuals
with disabilities. We thought that it would be great to create an app,
which can help thousands of people who rely on visual and auditory
supports to do their common tasks easily.
Adopted by school districts, SLPs, ABA teachers and educational
centers world-wide, AdastraSoft Steps is a affordable and flexible tool
for educators of special needs. It allows any user to organize a set of
information in a checklist list format. Typically, it could be used as an
activity schedule that illustrates a sequence of steps to perform a
task. Alternatively, it may be used to implement daily activity
schedule.
Our Functional Planning System provides a visual approach to daily
planning. Utilizing the power of video modeling, the Functional
Planning System can be used to plan out a user’s entire day. Think of
it as a cross between a video playlist and a calendar app. Activities
can be scheduled, and step-by-step videos prompt the user through
the completion of the activity. Alarms can be set and even made to be
recurring for daily tasks. Videos for many activities are already
(available through in-app purchase) as part of our Functional Skills
System video library, which has over 4,000 images and videos to
choose from.
Scheduler offers a variety of features in an easy to use interface
allowing maximum customization. These features include various
orientation locks, which prevent students from engaging in stimulatory
behaviors with the video. Users can also select from three video and
picture sizes. There’s also a pass code function, which can be
applied to prevent users from skipping around to preferred aspects of
their schedule.
Visual Schedule Planner is a completely customizable visual
schedule iPad app that is designed to give an individual an
audio/visual representation of the “events in their day". In addition,
events that require more support can be linked to an “activity
schedule” or “video clip” to help model the task even further.
Visual Planner is perfect for home, school, work or community
environment. The app is designed for individuals who may benefit
from visual support to ease transitions, anxiety, or who simply need a
way to visually represent their day

Jungle Time is an incredibly easy, fun and interactive app that
teaches kids how to tell time. Jungle Time for the iPad maintains the
easy and engaging interface of the popular iPhone/iPod touch
version, adding many more layers of fun and challenge.
The clock includes crisp indicators to make it simple and easy to
learn- In total over 144 unique clock images are included (for each 5
minute increment) , Add your own voice - now your kid can learn
everything in mommy's or daddy's voice, Add your own items - take
pictures of your child's clock to make the game more fun and
personal
This is the fastest way for any little kid to learn how to read digital
times. Once they have mastered it, got check out Telling Analog
Time by Photo Touch
Often, toddlers have a difficult time transitioning from one event to
another. An abrupt announcement that play time has ended will only
lead to a tantrum. Time Smart is a great way to help your toddler
transition from one activity to the next and teach your toddler the
concept of time
Clockmaster is a game to help children make the connection
between hours and minutes and to help them become fluent in both
reading and setting time on digital and analog clocks.
While "telling time" is usually not covered until grade 2nd, I think this
game is appropriate for any child that shows interest starting as early
as 3 or 4.. The important thing to remember is to have fun so if they
are enjoying it go for it. If not, perhaps come back when they are
ready.

In chef's pizzeria your child masters the concept of naming simple
fractions using pizza picture examples. Designed for grade levels 26, Pizza Fractions provides a basic introduction to fractions in an
approachable game-like format.
There are 12 computer animated videos on understanding fractions,
improper fractions & mixed fractions, equivalent fractions, adding
fractions, adding fractions examples, subtracting fractions, multiplying
fractions, multiplying fractions examples, dividing fractions, dividing
fractions examples, convert fraction to percent, convert decimal to
fraction.
Use Freddy, an alien, to determine the equivalence among fractions,
decimals, and percents.
We use a simple tactile interface where you can tap the screen to
create a fraction from an everyday objects like a pizza or a chocolate
bar. The difficulty level of the game increases as you master the
simpler fractions and then more questions in an increasing level of
difficulty are offered.
Learn about fractions, decimals, percentages and their equivalents.
The game features several levels where the object is to drag objects
onto a number line in the correct numerical order
Usually basic fractions concepts are represented in one of two ways;
either by a shape divided into equal parts with some of the parts
shaded, or by presenting a group of objects with some of the objects
different in some way. For example, dividing a circle into four equal
parts is one way to show the fraction one-fourth.
Tutorials for beginners, Name, compare, and add fractions visually,
Convert fractions between improper and mixed format, Score tracks
progress, Hear fractions in multiple languages with native speakers.
Understand that fractions represent a number of equal size pieces of
a unit, See how fractions with common denominators can be added
by summing their numerators, Discover why fractions with unlike
denominators must be rewritten as equivalent fractions with a
common denominator, Visualize fraction addition and subtraction
using both fraction circle and number line models\\
