Literacy through music

Demo Interactives:

 

Here are two example interactives-


Try them yourself to experience how linking literacy processing
to musical performance feels in your brain!

 

Example 1: Look/Say/Look/Play

This interactive takes you through a sequence of literacy processing tasks, moving from symbol to sound:

     i) converting a letter/grapheme to a phoneme,

     then
 
     ii) converting an image to a word to an initial phoneme,

The tasks get progessively harder, with available processing time becoming shorter and shorter as you progress.

 

follow THe Instructions:

LOOK at the letter or image pattern.
SAY the phonemes or word back,
LOOK again (if instructed),
PLAY the pattern on the computer keyboard,
using the keys Pic of the Letter A on the keyboard and Pic of the letter T on a computer keyboard.
During the Jam Session, play what you want.

NB: If pressing the keyboard does not play a sound,
       click your mouse somewhere over the video image, and keyplay will be activated.

 

 

Example 2: Listen/Play

This interactive works in the opposite processing direction, moving from sound to symbol:

You have to listen to a spoken phoneme pattern and play that pattern back using the letter pattern.

 

Instructions-

LISTEN to the phoneme pattern.
PLAY it back on the computer keyboard,
using the keys Pic of the Letter A on a computer keyboard, Pic of the Letter S on a computer keyboard and Pic of Letter T on computer keyboard.
During the Jam Session, play what you want.

NB: If pressing the keyboard does not play a sound,
       click your mouse somewhere over the video image, and keyplay will be activated.

 

 

 Watch a child playing the Listen Play interactive:

Angus (P3) plays Listen/Play with letters a, s and t, 
using the keys Pic of the Letter A on a computer keyboard, Pic of the Letter S on a computer keyboard and Pic of Letter T on computer keyboard.
