We are excited to introduce this new kit to SETdirect! Students will love exploring basic coding skills through programing robot mice to navigate mazes in search of cheese. In partnership with PRCVI, resources for students with visually impairments have been created and can be signed out from their lending library (see resources section).
After hearing amazing stories of artful inclusion from districts last year, we have brought forward this SETdirect kit for 2017-2018. This kit brings out the creativity in everyone. Switch adapted art tools enable all students to use scissors, markers and paint to create unique works of art. This kit includes a switch activated spin-art device, a remote control felt-pen holder, switch-activated battery-powered scissors, and a GoTalk 4+ speech generative device.
The SETdirect class leader’s kit allows everyone to teach, learn and do. The switch activated spinner and communication device enable any student to lead a BINGO themed learning activity. This kit is designed to support game-based learning as well as a variety of other classroom activities.
New for 2017-2018, the Science Kit brings accessibility to examining the microscopic world. The digital microscope, and large high definition monitor combine to give all students access to the excitement of observing magnified items (up to 220x!). We have included 48 sample slides for viewing a variety of items across a number of content areas. The Go Talk 9+ can be programmed with appropriate vocabulary for activities pertaining to exploring with the microscope.
This year’s Storytime Kit makes use of a discrete switch inserted into the book, combined with a Step-By-Step communication device to have the included books (or any short book!) read to the student.
The accessibility features of the Card Making Kit enable all students to take part in making paper that can be used decoratively when creating cards with cardstock. The Jelly Bean Switch and Powerlink, attached to the Blender, will assist access-challenged students to activate the blender themselves, while the GoTalk will aid communication and reinforce the steps to follow. The Stamp Platform will help facilitate stamping the cards.
From the makers of Box-Cars and One Eyed Jacks, this kit and its included resources, capitalizes on the fun of cards and dice to teach and reinforce math concepts. The jumbo foam dice and the oversized playing cards help make activities that are challenging for those with fine-motor difficulties, become not only more accessible, but fun and engaging for all.
This beginners coding kit includes the award-winning, and beautiful Cubetto robot, with tangible coding blocks. Screenless coding demystifies the process of programming, and allows for a visual and tactile coding experience. The included Go Talk 9+ can be programmed with commands corresponding to the coding blocks, making this kit accessible to all students.
The accessibility features of the Make it Grow Kit enable all the members of a classroom to take part in a class project to plant seeds from the Planting Starter Kit and Root Vue Kit, care for them, and watch them grow. The Powerlink and Jelly Bean switch can be hooked up to the Waterpik to assist any access-challenged students water the seeds themselves, while the GoTalk assists with communication.
Updated from last year’s Photo Op kit, this kit makes use of a switch accessible camera mounted on a flexible clamp-mount, allowing aspiring photographers to capture the world around them from their perspective. Once printed, students can share their photos, with narration, in the talking photo album book.
