What’s a ViZZle?

Posted on April 15, 2011. Filed under: ViZZle |

If you work with students who are visual learners or are on the autism spectrum, you should check out ViZZle. Monarchtt Teaching Technologies, Inc. has developed web-based interactive visual learning for children who process information visually. With a subscription to ViZZle you can create and share interactive visual lessons, activities and supports for special learners.

Some of the things you can create and share include: interactive storybooks, books, games, matching boards, token boards,timers, first – then boards, and expression builders. My students were able to take advantage of the free trial and created three assignments: an interactive storybook, a matching board and an interactive game. This was an amazing experience for my students who now have a much better understanding of what is involved in creating a lesson for visual learners. Many found it challenging to think visually and to select visuals that would help the learner understand the concept being taught. My students were able to present their lessons to the class and get feedback from their peers.

The ViZZle support team members were a tremendous help to my students. They answered many questions and were very supportive of my students’ projects. Each student came away from the experience understanding the importance of using visuals with special learners. This hands on experience was one of their favorites this semester.

If you work with children who are visual learners – ViZZle is for you.
