State of workshop
This workshop was held at Nagano National College of Technology, which is a partner school for the GEAR5.0 project. This time, we mainly experienced programming, which is the basis for creating
application-related support tools. As teaching materials for programming, they experienced creating sample apps such as a simple VOCA app, a drawing app, and a speech recognition app, which are iPad apps that are often used at schools for special needs.
In the workshop, 8 people from 7 groups of supporters and related parties, including teachers from special needs schools, participated in the workshop. I was.
It was an opportunity to touch on how to make an app that is actually used at a special needs school and deepen their understanding of how the app works.
From the participants, “I thought it would be easier, but I learned more than I expected by making it from scratch”, “I actually made it and it gave me an opportunity to come up with new functions I want” , “By experiencing it, I became interested in programming and wanted to DIY an app.” And so on.
