SnapType app

One of our super-smart OTs sent this e-mail to the group today:

More app fun!

If anyone is in need of an app that allows students to type on class worksheets, you might want to check out SnapType (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/snaptype-for-occupational/id866842989?mt=8).

You take a picture of the worksheet with your ipad, crop it as needed, & then have the student type on the worksheet right on the ipad. To print the student's work, just send a PDF copy to yourself via email (in the app).

I have found it particularly helpful for some of my students who have trouble with the larger laptop keyboard (a lot of the hunt & peck typers), & those who have trouble visually tracking when trying to type on a traditional computer/laptop.

It is free. If you want to save more than 3 files then you will need to pay $2.99 to upgrade.  

Thanks L.S.!
