Steve Jobs and Apps for Autism

Last night’s episode of 60 Minutes re-ran two stories that may be of interest to educators. The first story featured Steve Jobs’ biographer talking about what made Jobs tick as well as a little history of Apple. You can read and watch the story here.

The second story featured Lesley Stahl reporting on how iPads are being used by teachers, parents, and therapists to assist students who have Autism. If you’re really interested in learning about iOS apps for students with special needs I recommend reading iPodsibilities and Teaching Learners With Multiple Special Needs. The video from 60 Minutes is embedded below.
