Language Learning App Question It for Students on iPads

The iPad is a powerful educational tool for students with special needs. A language learning app can be a game changer for students.  Question It is designed to help children learn what type of word answers can be given to different questions.  It starts with simple sentences and moves to paragraphs as students practice answering.  This app uses faded color cues and errorless learning to help children build their understanding of how to answer Wh- questions.

Language Learning App


Question It reinforces correct answers by repeating each one for students to hear.  Students will then see fireworks after they respond correctly to five different questions.  This app allows multiple students to log-in and keeps track of their data.  All of their progress can be emailed or printed straight from the app.  Question It includes a help screen with information on how to use the app and extra resources for teachers and families.

This language learning app also uses the basic teaching strategy of fading cues or fading prompts to help support students. The first level uses full color cues. The second level uses color borders, and the third level has no color cues. Instead of just teaching one Wh-question at a time, Question It uses discrimination training for generalization and carry-over.

Question It App

Question It is free to download and gives users access to select items across all four levels featured in the app.  There is an in-app purchase to upgrade to the full app which gives full access to thousands of items. If your school district is looking to for volume purchasing discounts they can download the special education version so they don’t have to worry about in-app purchases.
