Kindle for iPad
Learning Objective: The visually impaired person will be able to comfortably read by being able to choose from a variety of font sizes, backgrounds and glare coverage to meet their individual visual needs.
Learning Actions: All forms of learning actions will take place as the person is reading their individualized material.
- Students can place textbooks on the Kindle app.
- Students can place personal reading material on the Kindle app.
- Students can place magazines and other literary materials on the Kindle app.
Out of Class Activities: Students can easily bring home the reading material and continue reading at a comfortable level outside of the school environment. A person can easily read a book while at home, sitting in an office waiting for an appointment or even in a car as a passenger.
Sample Project Idea: Students will be using this app for everyday school and personal use. The app serves as an E-Reader while providing a person the ability to adjust the reading material to meet their individual visual needs without the cumbersome large print books.
