Assignment 2: DIY Culture

Communication Button Press

I find this tool to be extremely useful in the classroom for students who can not communicate clearly or are difficult to understand. Students may not be able to form the proper hand signals so by viewing the picture they can press the button to what they need and also learn the vocabulary for that term.

Ninja Stress Balls

I believe this tool can assist students to alleviate their anxiety they have in the classroom.  It not only gives the students something to relax their mind, but also allows them to focus their attention back to the assignment while de-stressing themselves.

Shoe Tying Education Aid

This tool can help individuals whose motor skills have not quite developed and may struggle to hold objects in their hands. With this, they can learn to practice with shoelaces maintaining objects in their hand and learning techniques they feel comfortable with.

Graph-o Writing Aid

This particular tool would be of great help for one of my students who does not like grasping pencils in his hand and complains. This will let him enjoy writing without any complaints and begin finishing assignments.

Zipper Pull

This tool would be perfect for one of my students who has motor skill problems. When they go to the bathroom, they usually take a while because they are having trouble. With this tool, they can use it to assist their needs and get back to instruction.

One tool I would further enhance is the communication button press. I would try my best to install more words that the students can refer to by pressing the button. This would add to their vocabulary and be able to communicate more with the teachers.
