Abstract

The goal of this study is to find an efficient solution on the World Wide Web that would promote aural skills for the learning-disabled children through scaffolding strategy. For the abstract mental model building of pitch recognition and rhythm, there is a significance level for the learning effect from traditional class learning with Talking Music Web Browser. The design of Talking Music Web Browser with Vygotsky's concept of zone of proximal development is developed according to the scaffolds of Chevé system, music notation, solmization and melody to inspire the learning-disabled children to get aural skills. The Talking Music Web Browser can recover the learning-disabled children from a difficult position of no instruments to play or out of tune in learning music. They can acquire a lot of learning supports which comes in extremely handy.
