Viewers Tips and Tricks for Skill Training App… and More…

Tips and Trick otswithapps.comHere is a tip regarding use of the Skill Training App from Margaret at Your Therapy Source :

  • “I do enjoy this app but just a tip – need to use it on the iPad.  Way too small for iPhone for me.” Margaret also adds additional free resources from her website:
  • “If you want simpler versions of the same concept check out this free printable from Crossing Paths –  Not an app but it is a similar motor planning and visual motor task.”

Hard copy tasks are a typical option and may be preferred for choice of tools used, size, positioning and tactile/kinesthetic/proprioceptive options afforded with hands on tasks for many students/clients. Another option available with mobile device use, is to import the image of of online documents or images into apps as Doodle Buddy, Draw Free, Educreations, Explain Everything (using screen shots ) and use the drawing tools to complete the visual motor task. Saving the picture within the app, emailing the completed task or taking a screen shot and printing or sharing through Wi-Fi, Air Print or Cloud service will allow you to print from a portable device or computer if connectivity is available.

Thank you to Margaret from Your Therapy Source for her tip and resources.
