Interactive Learning Station Aims to Bridge Gaps for Individuals With DisabilitiesBy Exceptional Parent Magazine, Vol. 39, No. 8/9, p. 74
Publication Date: August/September 2009
Article features the satalight, an assistive technology Interactive Learning Station (ILS). The ILS is accessible to people with significant physical or learning disabilities and is ADA wheelchair compliant. The satalight was designed to increase student-teacher interaction, allowing educators to help students with physical and developmental disabilities to become more independent by engaging them in learning problem-solving skills. It offers multi-sensory stimulation, allows for annotation and touch on its SMART Board interactive whiteboard, and has the capability to incorporate additional components. The SMART Board can be moved up or down or tilted at multiple angles to make it accessible to a student with physical disabilities. A high-output overhead projector is also incorporated into the design. The ILS is tip resistant and its four-wheeled locking design allows it to be easily moved.
