[prMac.com] Gold Coast, Australia - Section 31, Gold Coast Australia - The brand new children's educational app, Learning to Read with Byron -Visual Constancy, has been launched now in the iTunes store. The learning activities have been designed in consultation with Tracy Ashbridge, specialist leading teacher of students with Learning Difficulties.
This specially designed educational app features activities for all 26 letters of the alphabet specifically designed for both young learners and learners with identified learning difficulties in the area of visual constancy, also known as visual form constancy. It is great for independent errorless learning - auditory and visual cues prompt the student to select the correct answers.
For students diagnosed with difficulties in Visual Constancy, parents, teachers, para-professionals require simple and effective ways to remediate these problems and achieve success in reading. Visual Constancy is the ability of the reader to accurately and efficiently identify letters when presented in different sizes and fonts. This is a vital component of efficient and accurate reading.
Learning to read with Byron - Visual Constancy features uncluttered screens to allow students focus on the learning activities. Byron Bear features throughout the activities. The app creates a inclusive environment for children to develop their Visual Constancy skills:
* Identifying specific letters presented in different fonts
* Identifying specific letters presented in lower and upper case forms
* Developing visual discrimination
* Tracking left to right across a page
This app caters for learners of junior school age, although it may be appropriate for older students who require specific practice in visual tracking skills. Students can work with all 26 letter and have the option to email your results to a parent or teacher. Players are encouraged to beat their own times and achieve the target times detailed on our website. The game allows for multiple players to record their times and these can be logged on a leader board.
