Making Invisible Knowledge Touchable / Visually Impaired Students, Product Design

Making Invisible Knowledge Touchable
Making Invisible Knowledge Touchable

The models are dedicated to the topic of explaining the surrounding micro bio-system for children. Accumulation of knowledge is strongly connected to the way we get the new information. The more types of encoding (as a crucial first step to creating a new memory) we engage the more sufficient is the education process. A multi-sensory method like the VAKT (Visual-Auditory-Kinesthetic-Tactile) can be used to help children understand knowledges. Proceeding with the models’ implementation we also take into account that “reading” the pictures is a more recognized way of learning for the visual impaired children.
