ABC’s of iOS: VoiceOver for Kids 3-8
Learn to provide effective support in introducing the iPad with Voiceover to young students so they are prepared with tech skills equivalent to their peers when they enter school.

You’ll learn to analyze your student’s level for intentional touching and basic tech skills by teaching iOS gestures through learning games.
