Apps, Widgets, Tablets, “Oh My!”

Navigating the world of tablets, apps, and widgets can be daunting especially when there are over 200 apps/widgets that are introduced each day. How does one know what functions these applications have without purchasing them first? In this workshop we will review and demonstrate applications and widgets that can assist with learning disabilities. Participants will also explore a website created by the assistive technology project, Tools for Life, that compares apps/widgets by their functions. They will also learn the ins and out of both the Apple and Android platform systems as well as tracking the app future trends.
