International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA) (12th, Maynooth, Greater Dublin, Ireland, Oct 24-26, 2015)
The fundamental right of education and employment for cognitive disable person is recognized in very recent times. With the advent of technology there have been many interactive way to combat with the challenges of disability and provide supplement training for enabling the challenged person with the skill of employability, so that they can individually lead the normal life without depending on others. In this work we try to identify the problem faced by cognitively week people and find appropriate solution by introducing computer aided interaction. We proposed a platform to blend audio and depth vision for augmented learning. The primary goal of this work is to create a play way teaching environment for individuals with learning disability so that the enhanced method help them for elementary education and provide self-confidence and motivation and encourage for continuous learning. While implementing, the system has shown significant improvement on learning by a range of people including learning challenged and normal kinder garden kids. The augmented method proposed here can be added advantage with the concept of visual teaching, live experience and reactive and pro-active mechanism rather than reading static content from book. This will also involve the physical movement with precise control that can lead to motivated control of limbs by any neuro motor disability effected person. [For the full proceedings, see ED562093.]
