IEP Objectives : Expanded Core Curriculum Games for Visually Impaired Students
ObjectiveEd.com is our new company where we are building ECC games and interactive simulations for blind and low vision students, based on a child’s IEP .
The student’s progression in mastering skills in our education-based games and interactive simulations are maintained in a private secure cloud, visible to the IEP team in a web-based console .
If you are a Special Ed Director , press for more details on using these types of games as a tool for maximizing student outcomes, relating to their
IEP Individual Educational Plan .
We wanted to go back to the first Lighthouse we visited to show the teens how we had improved the game, and implemented their ideas.
We set up about six iPads, and the students in our app club handed them out. The teens took to the app right away, and quickly finished a dozen levels. Here are some photos:
These teens thought we should build more games like this one, and they wanted a game that would be similar to Flappy Bird – where you keep driving down a road, and the entire game ends as soon as you make a mistake. They thought that would be very cool, and very addicting.
We’re getting very close to submitting the game to the iTunes App Store. The only thing needed now is to test out the last set of levels (levels 25-35) that haven’t had much testing, and ensure that the game has a “finished” feel to it.
