Early Years Education

Supervised by Matthew J W Morgan; Moderated by Padraig Corcoran

Due to the rise of COVID and social distancing within Schools, Early Years (KS1) have suffered a lack of hands on teaching when it comes to learning content such as the alphabet and other basic drawing/writing skills. My proposal is a mobile application that will allow Children to learn and practice such skills. This will involve app development as well research into how exactly the skills that a teacher can provide can also be transferred into the application to provide a positive experience for the user. My proposal is that by using the touch screen to learn how the letters are drawn they can then transfer that to using a pencil as it will be a similar movement pattern. Further research could also be done to look into a wider age range for those with learning disabilities
