Listen to learn

  1. 1. listen to learn Moza Naya
  2. 2. Outline: • About the software ▫ Aims and objectives ▫ What is it? ▫ Features • Theory implementation • Why I choose or design this software • Benefits of software
  3. 3. Aims • To help students with visual impairment or totally blind in SWC by creating better learning environment through listening to records of their teachers. This will facilitate the learning process for them as well as it will improve their speaking and listening skills. • As I noticed, the speech-output software in some programs suffer from sound clearness and ability to speak fluently.
  4. 4. What is the software (about the software)? • Name: listen to learn • An iPad software that gather all of audios that have been recorded by students’ teachers in one place. As a result, if a student is looking for a specific task , let says reading a passage, then she can swipe up the iPad screen and mention the title or teacher’s name. In a few minute she will receive a result (using search option in the database). With this result, there will be a audio file of a teacher who recorded her voice while she was reading the passage.
  5. 5. Features: • Students ▫ ▫ ▫ ▫ Using voice searching Having all audios in one place for every course Voice writer (write what students say) Print option (Braille language) connect to translation software and the Braille language printer • Teachers ▫ Voice record button ▫ Course management (deleting, editing, adding, control access, upload, download)

  8. 8. • Pavlov ▫ Students will hear a sound to indicate they need to call the title of the subject or teacher’s name. So that means students will associate the sound with the need of saying or telling title to the voice researcher. • Vygotsky’s (ZPD) ▫ They don’t have enough knowledge about it. As a result, they search using voice researcher by telling the program the title of the topic and start hearing information that has been recorded by their teachers or print it out. So this application allows students to scaffold their knowledge. By the end of the lesson these students learn about lesson, new vocabs and the exact pronunciation for vocabs.
  9. 9. Gardener • linguistic intelligence: because students use their verbal capability to search and find the needed information. • This software support Intrapersonal intelligence because motive self study. • Musical smart by listening to audio.
  10. 10. Why did you choose this particular learning technology? Why is it particularly needed in schools or colleges? Why is this technology particularly suited to its learning situation? (explain the needs of this software) • SWC cares about the special needs students and there is a number of students with visual impairment however, I never saw or knowen that SWC taught totally blind students. In order to, help this category and SWC as well as I came up with this program which I think could be the best way and guide for these students. As I understand from (Sultana &Hayhoe, 2013) that HCT in general has portable Braille note taking devices and translation software as well as speech recognition technology and they are Dragon, Dictate2 and IBM VoiceType3 for windows.
  11. 11. • The different between pervious speech technology and the one I design is the ability to speak and pronounce fluently . The significant different is that learning by listening to audios software, it allows teacher to directly record their voice and upload it to the course. In addition, speech text reader is working only with icons and software bar, but it is not working with software contents (Text in the word document). • Listen to learn software will improve college’s regular students and stuff performance in dealing and teaching blind students.
  12. 12. • Related to The Federal Law No. 29 of year 2006 on the Rights of People with Special Needs guarantees: “…the person with special needs access to equal opportunities of education within all educational institutions…” as a result, all of schools and colleges should implement this law in their environments. In addition, this software will facilitate the teaching process for teachers and help disable students to learn better and become a part of modern learning style. From my point of view I think this is one of the greatest assistive technology and easiest to be applied and used by both teacher and blind students.
  13. 13. Future Development for this software • Creating iPad screen with more senses where blind students can touch and feel the dots of Braille language. This is going to be very intelligent technology and will impact positively in the other areas of technology especially assistive technology.
