What I Like About This Application:

  • The application is just like the Fun Deck cards except portable! This cuts down on space in your bags from having to carry all of the fun decks with you.
  • The fact that you can record data is phenomenal.
  • I love how you can use the application with up to five students.
  • It is great that you can choose the cards to use based on the student(s) you are using the application with.
What I Would Like to See in Future Updates:

  • I would love it if the narrator would ask "what is the same" and "what is different" as well as stating the names of the objects.
  • It would be great to choose whether or not the student has to compare or contrast or both for the cards. This is because it is hard to remember whether the student had difficulty on the comparing or contrasting each object.
Therapy Use:

  • Receptive Language - Comparing and contrasting objects relates to the ability to understand and describe objects. You can talk about parts, where you see objects, what the objects look like, and more. Create a visual to help students remember different ways they can compare/contrast objects.
  • Expressive Language - Listing comparisons and differences between objects aloud is a form of expressive language. You can write these on a list, Venn diagram, or chart.
Price:

This Fun Deck app from Super Duper Publications, as well as all of the others, is $1.99.
