viVOS - Artframe for creative learning
Mantra Lingua's viVOS Artframe, the device that lets you play audio from
your paper drawings!
Take any A4 or A3 paper and draw with ordinary pencils, pens, or paints. Collage with glitter, sandpaper, foil... anything really to create a multi-sensory learning experience. Everything from graphs, diagrams, maps, photos, and paintings, whether printed or hand-drawn, can be enhanced with sound. Create your multimedia publication in minutes– no programming required. Tap with fingers anywhere on the paper to record and playback! As easy as that.
"I've had a look at your videos and I love the idea of the viVOS artframe. It looks really simple to use, for both teachers and students. I can see immediate applications for all learners, regardless of what they are learning or what challenges they face. First of all, the novelty of the device would be quite exciting for the learners, keeping them motivated. They would probably feel they have more control over their learning, which is usually a good thing. "
Any soundspot can hold 3 levels of content: self recording, pre-recorded mp3 files and lastly, playback pre-recorded mp3 files in different languages!
viVOS Artframe does not need a computer. Just tap with fingers to record and listen.
Here are a few more examples, but the drawings and audio recordings can be endless.
(Tell the Time, Somali Family Migration 4 page Audio Graphic Novel, Follow the Galaxy, Roman Ablutions, Understanding Punctuation,
English Nursery Rhymes, Bird Songs and Calls, Caution while Crossing Road, Farm Animals, WW2 Evacuation....)
The possibilities are endless: just draw and record.
Pupils can work on projects collaboratively, or viVOS can be used singly, or with TA's for SEND or EAL.
The whole process is nearly instant with minimal learning or training. It's as easy as playing the traditional "Battleships" - just replace ships with audio files! Your drawings can be instantaneous; no need to be precious. There is so much free content on the web - print out pdf's and record onto them. Download podcasts, birdsong, and music, and organise them on your paper. Record your voice and change as often as you wish. Nothing is precious, and if you like what you have done, you can share with others. Ideal for MFL resource making, EAL languages, and of course SEN with the tactile dimension. Ideal also for literacy as a simple device to recite poems, with intonation and enunciation.
