Bubble Mania is a switch-adapted bubble machine that can be activated by touching a switch such as the one shown here. Also included is a “switch modifier” that allows the user to touch the switch as an on/off button (latch) instead of having to hold it down (momentary). A third setting called “Time” allows the educator to preset the bubble machine to stop after up to 2 minutes, which will entice the student to activate the switch again. Bubble Mania and accompanying switch and switch modifier were added to the AT Lending Library through support from the CT Tech Act.
Sonocent Audio Notetaker
by Sonocent LLC.
Sonocent is a new type of audio notetaking software for Mac and PC laptop and Windows tablets. Research shows that capturing information is only one aspect of effective note taking. Truly effective learning is active learning, so synthesizing lecture material is the beneficial aspect of note taking. Engaging with the lecture content and summarizing it in note form creates connections in the brain, which aid with understanding and recall. Sonocent was added to the AT Lending Library through support from the CT Tech Act.
