Which problem are you trying to solve?
In most countries, especially those where English or French is not the mother tongue of the inhabitants, children often
encounter difficulties in assimilating the letters of the alphabet.
How are you going to solve the problem?
Based on the theory of sensory stimulation, the idea is to design a device that uses the auditory, visual and tactile
sense of children to help them learn the alphabet in a playful way.
What is the impact of your project?
This project will facilitate the learning of the alphabet in children. The theory of sensory stimulation favors using as
many of the five senses to help a wider range of children understand.
How can the project be manufactured in the OpenLab?
Each key of the keyboard is composed of a plywood cut with the CNC machine, foam and a thin metal thickness that can be
cut with laser cutting.
Describe your project in detail
Alphabetica is an interactive installation that builds a pedagogical system designed for children between the ages of
five and fifteen, consisting of a giant computer keyboard unrolled on the floor in the form of carpets with alphabetic
keys on which the children can jump on to display using a videoprojector or a screen the letter corresponding to the
pressed key accompanied by a sound for dictatate the phonetics.
