Trackpads in the Computer Lab

My right index finger is touching a gray Apple Magic Trackpad 2

I am currently exploring the use of trackpads in my computer lab. I chose the Apple Magic Trackpad 2 in gray for its large size (compared to laptop trackpads that I have seen) and for its color contrast against my tables. This is an interesting option for students who are having difficulties learning to use the computer’s mouse.

I am a special education teacher who supervises a technology lab with specialized software, adapted mice, and picture symbol communication aids for students whose significant disabilities make it difficult for them to use the general computer lab. I teach students who cannot climb the stairs to my lab in their classrooms. I also assist teachers and other personnel in my school with their technology needs as time permits.
