Create Hands-On Learning with Boardmaker

Hands-on activities are a great way to support learning. However, with stay at home restrictions, it can be challenging to buy the materials you need. Boardmaker can help make learning fun and interactive without having to go to the store. 

Boardmaker Online has over 200 interactive templates. You can create engaging hands-on learning activities for any topic. Learners can manipulate and interact with the activities you have created using a computer, iPad, or Tobii Dynavox device. 

Let’s look at an example of how you can share interactive activities. In the classroom, your learner may have been sorting objects by color or shape. Now, simply use our sorting templates to create an interactive activity that is easily customizable. First, choose how many categories you’d like, then add PCS symbols, images from the internet, or even your own pictures as sorting items. You can repeat this activity again-and-again using different sorting items. 

Counting objects is an important early math skill. Using our interactive counting bin template in Boardmaker Online, your learner can drag up to 16 items into bins and hear the numbers counted aloud. Just like the sorting activity, you can easily customize this template so that your learner can count their favorite things. 

Many families are using this time to teach their children functional skills. Use our interactive sequence templates to have your learner sequence home routines such as washing hands, setting the table, ­­­­and making a snack. The possibilities are endless.

Watch the video below to see how to create an interactive activity with a Boardmaker Online template. Use the Template Guide to find all the available interactive templates.
