Past industry collaborations and consultancy work
In 2015, the IoT Solution Centre designed a learning and assessment application for special needs students and educators. Developed in close collaboration with the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS), the tablet app builds on traditional flashcard teaching methodology, which typically assigns a single image or descriptor to a concept.
The application enables educators to associate concepts with more than one object instead, and allows them to add their own images, sounds and descriptors to customise content for their students too. This, in turn, allows students to make richer and deeper connections between more complex concepts and objects.
The application also automates student assessment and data collection, improving teacher workflows.
