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.
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.
If you’ve spent any time reading up on interventions for learning differences then you have probably come across the term multi-sensory learning. The phrase pops up fairly often in descriptions of dyslexia therapies, for example. But what exactly is multi-sensory learning, other than a buzzword? Read on to find out.
We absorb information in many different ways. Sometimes we learn by seeing, such as when we read a text. Or we may learn by hearing, as when a teacher explains a lesson to us.(more…)
In terms of learning foreign languages, students with dyslexia are often disregarded as those that lack proper abilities to study another language besides their own. Yet, this assumption is rather far-fetched.
Over time, a lot has changed in the education sector in the United States. Today, if you briskly walked into the classroom ready to remind yourself of the good old school days of your youth, you would be in for a rude shock. You would completely not relate to the current classroom environment.
Since its founding in 2007, Dybuster has had the privilege of working with over 1000 schools and more than 35,000 children (discuss: dyslexia and dyscalculia is produced by Dybuster International). In May 2015 we went to visit a couple of the schools that use our software made to help children with dyslexia and dyscalculia. Getting to meet some of these children was the best part of our school visits!
