With your collaboration, you would help our research immensely. The goal of our research is to contribute to the development of support tools for dyslexia in English.
Participants would have to play for 5-10 minutes the game MusVis (see Screenshot). This game explores how musical and visual elements have an impact on children with and, without dyslexia. We are looking for children between 7 and 11 years old (30 children with dyslexia and 30 children without dyslexia) during April. Only a desktop or laptop computer, headphones, and Internet are needed.
Please if you would like to participate – leave your contact details and we contact you with the study details. Duration only 5 – 10 Minutes.
The prototype was designed with the help of five children and five parents who tested the game and the results of the usability study have been presented this year at the research conference Web for all (W4A) in Australia in April.
I guess like everybody I love stories! I still like to watch movies and as a child (also now) I was so fascinated. 2015 I was in New Zealand, Wellington and where I visit the tepapa exhibition from DreamWorks Animation.
I guess I don’t need to tell you how much I enjoyed that 😉
“Kinder mit Lese-Rechtschreib-Schwäche haben auch Stärken – und die gilt es zu finden und ebenfalls zu fördern. Es ist nicht nötig, diese Kinder alleine über ihre Lese- und Rechtschreibfähigkeiten zu definieren und es gibt viele Möglichkeiten, nach der Schule Tools zu nutzen und Methoden zu entwickeln, um die Rechtschreibung zuverbessern.” – Maria Rauschenberger –
Vokabel Trainer: Learning words I frequently spell wrong with the App Semper
Spellchecker:Grammarly – still use the free version – which is helping very much to find the mistakes in English
Spellchecker:Google Docs finds lots of mistakes – good for writing anything there and then copy and past it 😉
