Apple App Store opens special education section

Mobile phones have caused conflicts between students and educators. But other mobile devices, especially iPads, have been seen as having educational value, especially for special education programs.

Audrey Watters reports in Read Write Web: “Some educators have found the iPad in particular to be well-suited for Special Education programs, as it can provide multiple paths for engagement and expression for struggling learners and special needs students.”

Up until now, the various apps that can help these kids and others have been spread across the web in educators’ sites.

Now Apple (AAPL), which long ago took an interest in computing in the schools, is making a move in its App Store to reach out to students with special needs by aggregating the various tools.
