Creating A Story Using A Tobii Dynavox Communication Device (With Snap Core Software)
We are very lucky at Pendle View Primary School to have the opportunity to give our pupils access to a number of high tech communication devices. This little boy has been using the Tobii Dynavox device for a while and has really enjoyed creating and telling his own stories using the Snap Core Software. What an incredible imagination he has!
The Mystery of The Missing Robin
These children all used different communication devices to help tell the story of the missing Robin. The moral of our story is that at Pendle View Primary School we ensure that everyone has the right to communicate in their own unique way that is right for them.
Everyone's human right is to communicate.
Using Eye Gaze For The First Time
This is the first time this little boy used eye gaze. It was amazing watching him activating the activities and tracking the yellow arrow around the screen.
Using BIGmack to request more music and finish
This little boy has been showing a preference for the music he likes and doesn't like. He really doesn't like Portside Pirates' song.
The beginning of my journey using a high-tech communication device
This little boy has been communicating using a low-tech communication system. He has just started his journey using a high-tech communication device. He enjoys watching Mr Tumble so we are using this as a motivator we will gradually increase the cell sizes he is working on and move away from Mr Tumble and introduce more vocabulary.
Using a switch to activate an activity
This little one has been using a button switch to activate songs he enjoys listening to. Watch how he joins in with the song 'If your happy and you know it' (Lovely arm-stretching).
