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.
