We want to digitize the magnetic letter board we use to teach sounds, words and spelling. We participated in #hack4good hackathon and were able to make a prototype. The prototype was built using the web development app called Xamarin. The prototype helped us see the possibility of what we could create.
We want to take it to the next step. Can you help?
Here are the features we know we would like to see:
Swiping capability: moving letters anywhere on the board
See and hear the sounds connected to each letter
Create commands associated with long presses, swiping up, down, right, left, etc.
Tracking each student’s correct/incorrect answers,
Setting to turn off sound
Ability to isolate sections of the board
Read (and re-read) the words that are formed (you said ABC, I want BCA)
Read 'alien’ or nonsense words phonetically correct
Be able to save information (e.g. usage data; information about each user’s accuracy, etc.) and measure it over time (concepts mastered, needing work, missing)
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
