Kidspiration Maps (as well as Inspiration Maps) is a highly versatile assistive technology app that follows the constructs of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). My students can use it to write a well-organized essay, organize information from a textbook chapter, and create interactive electronic study guides. The built-in images and the iPad’s touch screen and Speak Selection feature combine to make it a multisensory tool that benefits all students. User’s of Inspiration’s desktop software will find the apps familiar and easy to use; many of my students prefer to create their diagrams with the apps because they like to manipulate the objects on the touch screen. Kidspiration / Inspiration Maps are awesome learning tools!
