Application of Virtual Interface of Interactive Teaching Materials for Children with Developmental Disabilities
This research is focus on application of virtual interface of interactive teaching materials for children with developmental disabilities. Based on the base technology of interactive technology, the infrared emitter is the important tool; children control the tool via micro switch, thereby bringing the children the experience of the interactive technology application. There are two demonstrations on this research. The equipments are actually applied on children with developmental disabilities, the research focus on using low-cost equipment, then the relative activities will be easy follow for children. Case 1 and 2 are children with developmental disabilities took an infrared emitter to control the interactive teaching materials. All the interactive teaching materials design by flash software. The participants took infrared emitter as a mouse via wii remote. In this research, the devices relied upon user-friendly design, reducing the working load. The research applies wii remote as an interactive technology, technically, the concept is derived from the infrared receiver on the wii remote, the main purpose is introduce one kind of teaching skill in the resource classes.
