Most children respond to visual and auditory cues. While the design is created for the individual child and therefore will vary with need, the electronic response tutorial presented here provides a rich assortment of blinking & colored lights, an intermittent and static buzzer, a siren, and a memo voice recorder.
While it is possible to create different tutorial response sheets, it is equally possible to design the components that are activated by the child. While this may seem to be an ambitious project, I know absolutely nothing about electronics. If I can create this project to assist our children in learning, I know that, without a doubt, you can. Come with me and I will walk you through it.
Step 1: Begin your 'Book' with a design plan
1] What content will you target?
2] How many different electronic stimuli will best reward & motivate your child?
3] Do you want auditory, of visual stimuli or both?
Step 2: Make a List of Tools & Supplies: House Hunting Expedition & Shopping
2] Search for what you have around that you can use.
3] Consider taking apart simple electronic household items, electronic toys or even old shoes that light up.
4] If you need to buy tools, try Sears. They have a great selection of Craftsman tools that are well crafted and durable.
