Technology Tuesday- SnapType

SnapType for Occupational Therapy is an application that allows students with handwriting difficulties or fatigue to take a photo of their work and use an iPad or iPhone to complete their homework. The app can help students who have difficulties with handwriting focus on their work instead of penmanship. Children who struggle with handwriting may not be able to keep up with their peers while completing assignments. The purpose of SnapType is to take the focus off of handwriting and work on completing worksheets with the rest of the classroom. The application comes in English, Dutch and Spanish versions. Although there is a free version, you can also upgrade for $3.99.
