Publication Date: April 26, 2012
Article describes a new feature of an application for the Apple iPad designed to help students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The app feature, called What’s Up, is part of the company Memory on Demand’s Focus GPS software. What's Up enables students to transfer items from their action list to a private page on the social Internet network Facebook. Only the student and individuals designated by the student and his or her parents and learning assistants can access the page. Focus GPS uses memory by association and multiple pair comparison tools to guide users through complex thought process. The tools were designed to help users learn how to organize unrelated complex thoughts and better manage changing priorities and tasks. The article includes a link to Memory on Demand’s website, from where the updated Focus GPS app can be downloaded for all platforms as of June 2012.
