You can turn photographs, symbols, text and sounds into all sorts of activities to address the curriculum or specific skill areas such as:
- cause and effect activities
- literacy activities
- sound lotto and matching activities
- reward music choice board
- question and answer activities
- comprehension of “wh” questions and concepts
- problem solving
- quizzes and so much more…
The activities are easy to create with the simple interface which is user friendly and has lots of flexibility. There is an Easy Flow editor at the bottom of your screen which allows you to customise the Page Layout, Pictures, Text and Sound.
When you are adding pictures you can select from Widgit Symbols, Symbolstix Symbols and the Inclusive Technology pictures or add your own from the computer, internet or webcam.
I love the Edit option which allows you to paint, write, colour fill, trim or erase parts of a picture. This allows you to create pictures that are meaningful for each individual. Check out this fun way to use the edit tool on this video.
Settings can be changed to operate across activities. Some students may need rewards and sounds to play for longer duration or some may not need those animations at all. Students with visual impairment may benefit from a larger mouse cursor. Or you can set up accessibility options for touch screen, mouse and keyboard, one or two switches and eye gaze.
On completion of an activity you will receive automatic feedback about how the student has performed. Both written and visual information is provided and can be saved for future reference or shared with others.
Watch this video to see how easy it is to log in and create your own activities.
One of the most exciting features will be the ability to use activities across different platforms such as PC, Mac, iPad and Android tablets. ChooseIt! Maker apps will be available soon and we will be sure to write about them in the not too distant future.
