Meet Vicki! Â She is a special education teacher who has been actively involved with technology since she began teaching in 2001. With the arrival of the iPad and a few beginning apps that aided children with the basics of Language, Social Skills and Foundational Education apps, she knew this would evolve into an exceptional teaching tool. Working with students with Developmental Disabilities she individually sets up her studentsâ€™ iPads tailored to their IEP goals. She received teacher of the year four times and received an award for most innovative teacher in 2011. She has been on local New York TV and radio stations sharing her experiences using the iPad with students with special needs. Vicki has written blogs for Tech and Learning Magazine, EdSurge, CommonSenseMedia.org and has been an active participant with BridgingApps.org since their inception. Vicki has her masterâ€™s degree in education and is iPad certified by the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA). She has taught iPad certification webinars for TCEA to parents, teachers, and therapists. She also teaches use of the iPad to meet the Common Core Standards for IEP goals to school districts in the NY. She is now teaching Seniors how to use the iPad in her local school district.
Vicki has been reviewing apps since March of 2012! Â She has reviewed countless apps and is a true asset to our team. We love how Vicki always includes possible IEP goals in her app reviews. Â Thanks for all of your hard work Vicki!
