From Orange: Using I-Pads in a Special Needs Ministry #OC12

April 25, 2012

Meaghan Wall led a great workshop on how to use an iPad as a tool in special needs ministry.  Meaghan covered a number of “do’s” and “don’ts” with the iPad.  She introduced some of her favorite apps and gave great advice on how not use the tool.  Meghan introduced the Big Grips frame that she uses to protect the iPads used in her church’s special needs ministry.   Below is the contact information to obtain one of your own:
