Digital Abacus Widget

By Teesside University Accessibility Research Centre

Abstract

Digital Abacus to help solve numerical problems without use of a calculator. For students with limited fine motor skills who cannot use a pen and paper and needs to work out maths problems without the aid of a calculator. Developed as part of the JISC Widgets for Inclusive Distributed Environments (WIDE) project. WIDE is a joint project between the Accessibility Research Centre at Teesside University, JISC TechDis and Portland College that aims to make online learning more accessible and inclusive for disabled students/learners. Our objective is to develop open educational resources that improve or support the learning experience and can be shared and that can be shared and adapted by the community. This project extends our vision of creating learning resources adapted for students with diverse needs in order to create a better learning environment for all learners, wherever and however they study. The aim is to develop resources that extend the functionality and flexibility of VLEs to enable institutions to meet the needs of learners with disabilities who may require their learning resources to be adapted to meet their specific needs.
