“Ability to attend to an object jointly with another person is an important prerequisite to learning to speak and interact socially.” - Dr. Vidya Bhushan Gupta, American Academy of Pediatrics
This is the central idea behind iLookAskNShow, a mobile app that helps teachers and parents work together with children and teach them the skill of joint attention through coordinated control of eye movement and hand movement. If you are looking for an educational program that supports interactive and instructional learning, look no further than iLookAskNShow.
- Has three modules: Look, Ask & Show
- In the Look module, the student is shown objects or things of interest
- In the Ask module, the student asks for things around
- In the Show module, the student is prompted to select objects or visuals
This app is developed by WebTeam Corporation in collaboration with Dr. Vidya Bhushan Gupta.
