Emmen is a town in the canton of Lucerne and the public school is made up of a primary and a secondary school. The secondary school has a computer room as well as four desktop computers per classroom and there are also a number of laptops that are shared among classes, which means the students can practice on Dybuster software at school or in their own home.
We would like to introduce a few of the schools where teachers and students use our software to help them achieve an inclusive learning environment. Our first portrait is of the public school in Fehraltorf, Switzerland. Fehraltorf is a small town in the canton of Zurich in Switzerland. The public school is made up of primary and secondary schools.
It is well known that schools tend to put mental arithmetic skills above visual ones, as something like counting with your fingers is seen as a weakness in one’s calculation abilities. Educators and scientists have been tackling this obsolete cliché with research and scientific reports that seem to prove that visual aids are more than just helpful in the learning process.
Calcularis, our inclusive maths learning program, has been evaluated in smaller studies which clearly showed that the software was beneficial for increasing children's proficiency in math, now a large-scale study has been completed.
We had the exciting news last week that Dybuster Orthograph was nominated for the Design Leadership Prize in the Research category, so here's an interview with our brilliant designer Fraser Rothnie on how all of this came about.
Calcularis includes 48 different learning games, all of them designed to help students with dyscalculia improve their math and number skills. The software selects which games will help a student learn best, based on that child's strengths and problem areas creating an educational environment that is truly inclusive.
Amazing news! Dybuster Orthograph has been nominated by Design Preis Schweiz for the Design Leadership Prize in the Research category.
Our innovative learning programs train the basic skills in spelling and mathematics. They use multi-sensory techniques and adapt individually to each learner, so all students can benefit from it, a truly inclusive system. In order to make the best of our programs in the classroom, we have put together a few tips, applications and lesson ideas for you and your schools.
While letting a child attend a regular schooling system can prove successful and helpful for the child, there is also a chance that it might simply not work out. Dyslexic children require a much more systematic and individualised learning process and sometimes a regular school might not be able to provide that.
