Boosting learner engagement through visual and auditory tools
Having struggled with learning disabilities as a child, I had to work with special educators throughout elementary school. I learned how important it was to use visual tricks to break any type of learning into smaller steps.
After several conversations with professionals and learning disability specialists, Glotto was conceptualized.
Glotto is an application for 5–10 year old children who are in the early stages of enhancing their written and spoken English skills. It aims to improve spelling, increase vocabulary and introduce grammar rules by turning intuitive games into structured lessons. In planning and designing the app, I utilized the techniques that helped strengthen my own language learning to create bite size, customizable modules.
The Glotto name comes from glottogony, which is the study of the origin of language. It’s used like a prefix meaning “tongue” and is simple for young children to pronounce.
