Entries into each section on this wiki will be structured so that this basic information is available. We will include the TITLE of the application, with a link to the broad description and rating on iTunes. The ICON is simply a screen shot of what will show up on the device. WHO describes the student you have used this particular app with. WHERE indicates whether the app was used at home, school, or in therapy. HOW describes the manner in which you used it. This is also the place to elaborate on other ideas for application. WHY/WHY NOT provides the contributer an opportunity to indicate the value of the app, whether they would use it again, and rationale for the opinion. We invite anyone else who has used the app to comment on anything about it... different whos, hows and whys....

Faces iMake Lite

I used this application on my iPhone with a middle school multi-handicapped classroom as we were talking about different body parts and feelings. We looked at the pictures on the Flickr Faces I Make Gallery using the SmartBoard. (The iPhone was not connected to the computer.) Then individual students used words, symbols, or a communication device to tell me how to make unique facial creations. The manipulation of the items on the screen was a little challenging, so it worked better for students to tell me how to move the items. The program is also available for the iPad, and that may be easier for some students. It involves mostly clicking and dragging. We started with just the food library. I like how the banana can be rotated to be happy or sad. Next time this activity can be extended to include toys, tools, school items, buttons and even letters (rotating the "C" or "D" can also make a happy or sad face).

Additional ideas/comments from others:
I really enjoyed this app and can use it again and again. It was definitely worth the price. I wish that I could resize the items, so I may upgrade to the Premium version for $1.99.
