Sherston America drives SMART Table innovation with ReacTickles
ReacTickles for the SMART Table is specifically designed for early learners as well as those living with autism.
The multi-touch, multi-user interactive tool has been shown to help students develop concentration and attention skills, as well as encouraging sharing and imaginative play.
Inspired by real world objects that students love to manipulate, Slinkies, lava lamps, spinning tops and coins, the ReacTickles environment offers a safe place to experience dynamic interaction where players freely explore abstract shapes and create rhythmic responses with their fingers and bodies without judgement or fear.
It has been developed in conjunction with University of Wales, Cardiff (UWIC). Originally a successful desktop and interactive whiteboard application, ReacTickles is the result of an in-depth research project by the university, aimed at encouraging computer use, as well as developing mouse, keyboard, programming and screen skills among those with autistic spectrum differences.
- ReacTickles can be used with a SMART Table, interactive whiteboard, any desktop or laptop computer, mouse, keyboard, microphone and other adaptive devices.
- The design of ReacTickles maximizes on the physical rather than the cognitive aspects of computation, which are developmentally appropriate for most learners on the autistic spectrum.
- The ReacTickles interface can be preset to accommodate the unique sensory need of people on the autistic spectrum.
- The ReacTickles Creativity Box resources are structured to provide an easy to use, flexible guide to integrating the software into the curriculum in a manner that is rewarding and fun.
