IEP Objectives : ECC Games for Visually Impaired Students
ObjectiveEd.com is our new company where we are building ECC games for vision impaired students, based on the student’s Individual Educational Plan.
The child’s progression in learning skills in these curriculum-based games are maintained in a private secure cloud, accessible to the teachers in a web-based dashboard .

Creating the Intro Video
As I was resolving the bugs, we started creating the intro movie. We used the FURBY toy since most kids knew what it was (bad decision), but it made the movie quite cute. Here’s the intro video in full:

Everyone liked the video (teachers, students, parents, etc.), but older kids (10+) did not identify with the app, since it was focused on a toy designed for younger kids.
We spent part of one class discussing which toy would be appropriate for all age groups – the only consistent answer (other than an iPad0 was a gaming console, so we selected the Wii (since its less expensive than an xBox).
When the app starts up, it shows two toys (with the words “What do you like?”). If you select the picture of the Furby, it shows the above video. If you select the Wii, it shows a video for older kids.
