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.

. I was actually moved enough to post a thought :-) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or does it appear like a few of the comments appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors? And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I’d like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list every one of your social pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
