Abstract

School activities for students with disabilities are presented with self-made original content created with newly-developed software—GM Authoring Tool, Sound Linker, File Linker, and Gridmark Content Viewer—that can handle multimedia-enabled dot codes, originally developed by Gridmark, Inc. Each dot code can link up to ten multimedia mediums—such as a movie—in addition to up to ten voices/sounds. Touching dot codes with a speaking-pen enables audio files to be replayed, and touching dot codes with a dot-code reader enables multimedia to be replayed on iOS and Windows OS devices. Software and Post-it®-like sticker overlaid with dot codes, and a speaking-pen and dot-code reader are distributed for free to schoolteachers. All the teachers can now create their own self-made original content and can conduct related school activities without buying any costly software and tools. This paper presents basic information on creating original teaching materials using the developed software and its use in schools for students with difficulties.
