Tablets like iPads have become ubiquitous in today’s world. Wherever you go, there they are - in the hands of businesspeople or children alike. While often they serve as a distraction for kids, they can also be a powerful tool for learning.
Children living with vision loss are using tablets to hone their Braille skills. A new version of hangman, the word-guessing game, asks kids to run their finger over a paper Braille sheet on top of the tablet screen to pick letters.
“We’ve now taken the boring task of learning Braille and turned it into a game,” says Schultz, co-founder of Boston-based educational games maker ObjectiveEd. “We’re changing the dynamic so that a kid is looking forward to learning.”
