Junior Quamier McCloud previews for McKeone the comic strip he developed on an iPad.

In Michele McKeone's autistic support classroom at South Philadelphia High School, students develop their communication skills and the abilities necessary for their transition to independence. McKeone, in her fourth year of teaching at Southern, uses digital media to keep the students engaged, as well as plugged in to what's relevant today. The Notebook talked with her about some of the exciting projects that students have created using digital media. 

Learn more about McKeon's classroom.

It would be amazing if every school afforded tablets, laptops or even some PCs for their students. Unfortunately, our government is far away from funding something like that. Chandler
