Accessible Content for All Students

Accessible Content for All Students

Most educational activities are designed for learners that use paper and pencil. Even most educational apps require touch input. If you have a learner that uses alternative access methods like scanning or eye gaze, you may feel limited in your choices for home instruction.

Boardmaker can help you make learning accessible for everyone. Activities in Boardmaker can be completed with touch, scanning, and eye gaze. 

If you are working on an activity with your learner and need to switch the access method, go into the user settings to change it. If you want to make all activities for a learner automatically open using alternative access methods, change the user settings in the student account. Boardmaker allows your learner to open the activities engage with touch, scanning or eye gaze. Simply, individualize the settings within the access method to maximize independence.
