Comunication with screen interface and 3D switches

EasyChair Preprint no. 526

3 pagesDate: September 25, 2018


The research and innovation on education conducted by an interdisciplinary group, promotes the use of the “on screen interface”. This is a software tool meant to facilitate communication on students affected by mobility impairments and preserved intelligence by means of the use of the computer along with customized push buttons, in their school period. 3D printing techniques are used to personalize switches. Their development undergoes different stages: design, implementation, adjustment and then testing throughout several academic years. Results show a satisfactory development. The students achieve a sufficient level of autonomy in the teaching – learning process. The also prove the need for the personalization of the push buttons. The level of satisfaction is also perceived among the academic staff and even the student’s family. We highlight the assistance these technologies provide to the teachers who have motoric disabled students in the classroom. As a result, we emphasize the importance of prevention at an early age, leading to the development of different resources and personalized devices and their introduction in the educational process in order to promote personal and social autonomy and therefore, inclusion.

Keyphrases: autonomy, inclusive education, information technologies, learning-teaching, On screen interface
