EDTC-656 Visual Literacy. Motivational Trigger: Do you want to win friends and influence people? Are you willing to do uncomfortable things so that you can have more friends?. Learners & Their Environment. Target learners: At-risk Special-needs Sensory sensitive Socially challenged
Music: Spent several hours customizing audio clips to ease cognitive load distress: used uplifting little tunes to balance emotional slides (fear, anxiety), and supported the learner prior knowledge by repeating audio clips during respective concepts. Alas, all those sound clips ceased working within the magic of Camtasia. In PowerPoint slide show, they worked nicely. Maybe that was the angels telling me to lighten the load, that maybe my voice and all the visual and written words were plenty to process. Still think I need to add music to the audio track.
iPad App: Camtasia has an output for iPads. I am tinkering with that now, and plan to put the package together and publish for parents in iTunes. Loaded Making Friends iPad onto our son’s iPad! Here is your copy:
(I am currently bird-dogging an eBook as an ePub via Lulu.com into the iTunes iBookstore. It has an ISBN, but currently is only available via Lulu.com).
EPSY-636 Linkage: Still have illusions of grandeur that I can link the creations of this class to the research project (more a mock project, really) of EPSY-636 as a social-skills intervention. Will see how all that pans out.

Will send IQMatrix.com a copy of the final app. He was super to send me a .jpg copy of the file to chop up and his permission to do so. (I couldn’t do much with the .pdf file I bought from him.)
Used IQMatrix.com purchased .pdf file as the mash-up:
