Learners at Holcomb Bridge Middle School in Alpharetta, Ga. are able to engage with their tablets through interactive and fun apps, and this technology is proving especially helpful for special needs students. The communication tools offered by the devices help students express themselves and record their work in different ways. For special learners in particular, the personalization that these apps allow is extremely helpful for teachers to individualize instruction for these students according to their needs.
