About the LEARN Group
The LEARN group works to enhance accessibility initiatives in education. This group designs and develops educational online programs for BVI students. A large part of their accessibility initiative is sonification. One subsection of projects is the Cosmobally app series, which contains apps that help BVI students learn fundamental skills of interpreting sonification along with other skills usually taught visually in the classroom.
The head of the LEARN Group is Phia Damsma, who is a game designer with the goal of improve accessibility for STEM education in a fun and user-friendly way.
About Cosmobally Apps
The Cosmobally apps are educational applications for iOS and Android devices for visually impaired children to learn cognitive and technological skills through the use of sonification. In these games, the user is to use and distinguish different sounds as different shapes and objects. This is a major project of the LEARN Group and it is available in app stores.
