A MyTalk N2Y board
Thanks to the efforts of MyTalk Community member Carol Suddath, MyTalk Workspace users who subscribe to n2y, now have a MyTalk speaking alternative for users with communication challenges.
What is n2y and the n2y newsletter? Visit the n2y site for a complete explanation but below find a recap.
Those of you familiar with n2y are probably aware that each week a topical communication board (comboard tab) is provided to facilitate communication for students who lack the ability to speak effectively. Below is an example.
28 icons are chosen to represent the topic and supporting details of the news articles. This communication board is laid out so that verbs (pink), descriptors (blue), nouns (yellow) are presented in identifying color borders. This grammatical arrangement further enhances the language experience.
Knock-Knock and science experiment also included
Now in MyTalk Workspace - Located in the 'submissions' Library
Those 28 icons with accompanying spoken messages are now embedded in a MyTalk cell within the 'submissions' library. Click the check-box to the left of 'submissions' then type 'n2y' into the search box.
Drag and drop the most recent n2y cell on to your board in Layout view
Then click on that cell to be taken to the n2y Board
(Below you see that we are looking at the iPad after we have sync'd. Click this link if you need any help with sync.)
In addition, icons for the knock-knock joke and science experiment are present.
We hope you will take advantage of this pre-made board for use with your News-2-You readings and group discussions.
