How Are You Keeping Your iPad Safe?
As we've discussed on many of the ADVANCE blogs, the iPad is a wonderful tool to use with our students. It's a wonderful tool but also a somewhat fragile one.
As we know, kids and technology can be a good thing, but also an expensive one!
The SLP's in my district will be getting iPads to use this year, and one of the main concerns will be keeping them safe. This is an issue for use in therapy, but also when children use theirs. In my last two posts I discussed two four year olds who have iPads. The adults in their lives are often on the alert to make sure the iPads are not dropped, shattered, crushed or crushed.
In our district, we are going to use these iPad protective cases:
which are found here: http://www.autismepicenter.com/autism-blog/blog5.php?p=204&more=1&c=1&tb=1&pb=1.
Check out these reviews of iPad cases: http://www.autismepicenter.com/TEST/ipad-cases-for-autism.shtml. This is a great table, which provides lots of info for those of us working with kids AND iPads.
A parent recently told me about the iPad cases at this website: http://www.otterbox.com/new-ipad-cases/new-ipad-cases,default,sc.html. They look good, however I'm not sure anything can beat the foam protection shown above.
The other important iPad protection is, of course an APPLE protection plan.
Have any you ADVANCE readers out there had an accident with your iPad? Have you had a student drop your iPad? Any other protective covers you can share? Please comment below or on the ADVANCE Facebook page!
