Make sure you check out our video!
This week on EdCeptional we welcome our special guest Mark Dohn and discuss all manner of things.

Deb (@slpdeb), Tricia (@tlazarro11) and Patrick (@teachntech00) spend some time talking about a very interesting TEDx Talk by L. Todd Rose “The Myth of Average”. This talk has implications for education and attitudes about teaching to ALL of the students. We also talk about some interesting ways to work with parents and PlaydateDG58.
Accessibility is a priority to the designers and engineers at Apple. They have built some amazing software right into each operating system, from OS X to iOS and there will be even more in iOS7 in the fall. All for no extra charge to be able to use the products if you have a visual, hearing, motor, or cognitive disability.
Even if you don’t have a disability, you can take advantage of these systems for yourself or other family members.
Here are five different ways to do just that.

This week’s EdCeptional Minute is all about Chrome Apps and Extensions, what they are, how they work, and which ones should you try out. Join Deb and Patrick as they discuss this new tools and how you can use them in your classroom.
Current research shows that some of the most commonly used and seemingly positive phrases we use with kids are actually quite destructive. We talk about an article by Shelley Phillips that addresses this issue. We also look at a new Chrome app, Voice Comments, that is all the talk on Twitter. Patrick has some nice rubrics to share with you in our From the Trenches segment.
This show is about the sites that support reviews for apps designed to be used with children. Some of these sites are specifically for special education while others include apps for a wider population. These are the sites that we feel comfortable sharing with our listeners because they are our favorites.

We end with some Eduwins and celebrations of student achievement!
