Abstract

This study attempts to make use of interactive whiteboard as an interface for children with learning disabilities. Using flash software to design teaching materials with the assistance of interactive whiteboard could also be developed in the children's learning. When detected by a wiimote and infrared light device, corresponding information appears on a screen to increase the interaction aimed at children with learning disabilities by adopting an enhanced intuitive learning method. This study is divided into training and testing steps. The training step allows researchers involved in special education to acquire low-cost interactive whiteboard skills and to develop a unit course for children with learning disabilities. The participants are children with disabilities in the testing step. In this study, the application of technological innovations relies upon user-interface design, which facilitates users' control ability and interaction with an innovation, to convert the technical capabilities into a usable and friendly teaching material.
