The ‘Learn My Way' reader prototype is a proof-of-concept application that demonstrates Universal Design for Learning principles based on Readium and the EPUB technology infrastructure. The application features the English translation of the textbook Porta Aberta - Ciências Humanas e da Natureza, Unidade 4: vida ao meu redor for Grade 1 learners in Brazil. It follows the user requirements document that specifies the features of the application that must have toggled on/off capabilities to support learners with specific learning needs as well as all learners with and without disabilities.
The application presents an adaptation of the textbook that follows Universal Design for Learning concepts, including options to customize users’ reading experiences to their specific learning style, a synchronized voice-over and sign language video, interactive accessible activities and adjustable controls formatted to a touchscreen tablet.
