On Sunday, June 29, 2014, Lynn A. Wood of the Auditory Verbal Center of Wheaton presented, Explode the App! at the AG BELL Association For The Deaf and Hard Of Hearing 2014 Convention.

Explode the App! There is no limit to the listening, language and learning possibilities available through apps. Apps are common tools in auditory-verbal practices, clinics, schools and homes. If you own a device that runs apps, you have valuable resources at your fingertips (and at your child’s fingertips too!). This session presented strategies to engage, extend and expand on apps designed to promote vocabulary, listening and language. The presenters shared their favorite apps through themes and/or goals to traditional books, songs, crafts, games and more. The session provided attendees with ideas for making connections through apps to meaningful conversations and experiences, consider the pros and cons of using apps over traditional materials, and integrate ideas to adopt the benefits of both. Suggestions for “exploding ” the presenters’ favorite apps as well as key factors in choosing apps were shared and discussed. The format of the session was in teractive using iPad apps, hands-on materials and audience participation.
