  • Why?Long battery lifeInstant onTouchscreenEasier for people who struggle with motor skillsAttention span  because enjoy it more
  • Having a mental disability does not mean you can not have friends without one!
  • Amichaiiniates programs that will enable mentally handicapped people become integral members of the society.Alscommentaar: As commented, take more time for evaluationStill learning application without it!Teachers could watchGathered data copied in spreadsheet
  • Other way around, learned to use?
  • Learning 2.0 with Special Needs: Thesis presentation 2

    1. 1. Learning 2.0 with Special Needs<br />Glenn Vingerhoets<br />Promotor: Prof. E. Duval<br />Coordinator: José Luis Santos<br />1<br />
    2. 2. Overview<br />Memory Refresh<br />New Work<br />Iteration II<br />Demo I<br />Iteration III<br />Demo II<br />Problems<br />The road ahead<br />Future Iterations<br />Detailed Planning<br />Questions<br />2<br />
    3. 3. Memory Refresh<br />3<br />
    4. 4. Memory Refresh: Subject<br />Learning 2.0<br />Web 2.0: Enables collaboration & interaction<br />Learning environment<br />Special needs<br />Aimed at mental disability<br />On the iPad<br />4<br />
    5. 5. Memory Refresh: Research conclusions<br />Digital divide<br />Private network makes them feel different<br />Need of adapted Text-to-speech (too complicated now)<br />Can do more than most think!<br />Touchscreens take away the thinking of bringing the mouse to a button to do an action<br />5<br />
    6. 6. Memory Refresh: Application Idea<br />Part I: Facebook application<br />Accessibility to social technologies<br />Text-to-Speech + gathering data<br />Pictograms<br />Protect from abuse, “bad” social behavior,…<br />Part II: Visualization application<br />2nd priority: If goals part I achieved!<br />Clustering similar students<br />Focus on certain words<br />Avoiding certain texts<br />COMBINED: A support learning application without the users even knowing it!<br />6<br />
    7. 7. New Work<br />7<br />
    8. 8. Varia<br />Contacted organizations<br />Facebook -> Couldn’t answer research related questions<br />Amichai -> Not working on something like it<br />Tested existing Facebook applications<br />Tabs without pictograms -> More guessing<br />Could not understand statuses<br />Panicked when saw unknown friend request<br />Paper<br />Brainstorm Visualization application<br />Better to drop visualization application<br />Can import CSV file in existing apps (ex. Excel)<br />8<br />
    9. 9. Iteration II<br />Mockup since problems paper prototype<br />iOS Interface Builder<br />Biggest resemblance<br />Avoids double work<br />Needs controller – view classes<br />Goal: Testing usability<br />Think aloud test<br />9<br />
    10. 10. Iteration II - Evaluation<br />Scenario’s for person with mental disability:<br />Who was the last one that posted something on your wall?<br />Let something to be read out loud (for example a wallpost).<br />Update your status (again with a popup to see their reaction).<br />Whose birthday is it today? <br />When is event X? <br />Can you read out loud what person Y said to person Z?<br />Start a new Facebook chat.<br />Can you check who your friends are? <br />Of which groups are you a member?<br />10<br />
    11. 11. Iteration II - Evaluation<br />Some questions afterwards:<br />Have you ever used Facebook?<br />Do you have a Facebook account yourself? If not, interested in one?<br />Any experience with a touchscreen? Could be a smartphone,…<br />Any with the iPad?<br />11<br />
    12. 12. Iteration II - Evaluation<br />1 person with mental disability<br />Most scenarios successfully<br />Scenario 2 other way than intended<br />Problem with scenario 4<br />Trouble with imagining something unreal<br />Expert feedback<br />Really positive reaction<br />Dilemma selection -> Consistency with existing<br />Buttons: Always speak out loud + navigate<br />Other suggestions: Hierarchy for status updates, changeable font<br />12<br />
    13. 13. Iteration II - Demo<br />13<br />
    14. 14. Iteration III<br />Implementation of application<br />Facebook SDK<br />Text-to-Speech SDK (Nuance Dragon Mobile)<br />Progress:<br />Facebook connection: OK<br />Text-to-Speech: OK<br />Full functionality Facebook: +/-<br />Selection gesture: NOT OK<br />Sclera pictograms to update status: +/-<br />14<br />
    15. 15. Iteration III - Evaluation<br />First week after Easter holidays<br />At least 5 persons with mental disability<br />Goal: Usability & Usefulness (will they reuse it?)<br />Same scenario’s + questions Iteration II<br />15<br />
    16. 16. Iteration III - Demo<br />16<br />
    17. 17. Problems<br />17<br />
    18. 18. Problems<br />Selection gesture adaption in iOS<br />Losing a lot of time with it -> Postponed evaluation moment<br />Memory management iPad<br />Coverflowcrashes<br />If friends > 200<br />18<br />
    19. 19. The road ahead<br />19<br />
    20. 20. Future Iterations<br />20<br />
    21. 21. Iteration IV<br />Implementation<br />Adaptions after Iteration III<br />Add settings for guardians<br />Evaluation<br />Test settings if usable by persons without iPad and/or social network experience<br />Focus on:<br />Effectiveness: Success rates<br />Efficiency: Time to complete task<br />User satisfaction: Opinion about application<br />21<br />
    22. 22. Iteration V<br />Implementation<br />Adaptions iteration IV<br />Translation functionality<br />Google Translate for statuses<br />Auto language detection<br />Already have trouble with 1 language<br />Friends without disability<br />Evaluate adaptions<br />10 persons with mental disability<br />Split up in 2 groups<br />1 my app1 existing text-to-speech app + FB website<br />Time difference & success rates<br />Questions checking feeling about app<br />If allowed enough time<br />Switch groups: Avoid biased result<br />Every person different level & experiences<br />22<br />
