Project Name: Inclusive Design

Duration: 8 week

Area: Visually Impaired

Inclusive Education: to make visually impaired Independent and Powerful

  1. Recognize exclusion

  2. Learn from diversity

  3. Solve for one, extend to many

The inclusive design was one the helpful and well-organized put course in the NID curriculum. Its is the latest design trend and all companies and design firms are taking a major lead on inclusive design. As it is an aspect of human centred design. Every design decision has the potential to include or exclude customers. The inclusive design emphasizes the contribution that understanding user diversity makes to inform these decisions, and thus to include as many people as possible. User diversity covers variation in capabilities, needs and aspirations. When coming to doing an 8-week real-time college project it actually gives you an understanding of why include? and what does it takes to include?


There are many advantages to experiential learning; one of them is accelerated learning. Experiential learning also involves critical thinking, problem-solving and decision making skills. It goes beyond the theories taught in the classroom to offer first-hand experience, which further aids in the retention of these new concepts. Another benefit is the increased engagement levels of students.

Identifying area sector, user and context are an essential decision making time period that happens in every design processes. It makes us be sensitive to any specific target so as to spend more planned time and activities with them. Also as a constraint, it is letting us learn how to design within a given perimeter. Various design methodologies can only effectively be undertaken once you finalise one user group sector and context. The starting, of course, started with Field Visits to Vijaya Mary Integrated school for blind School for blind, Aluva Kerala Madonna school for the deaf, Vijayawada Andhra Pradesh Abhyasa vidyalayam, Vijayawada Andhra Pradesh Vimhance Hospital, Vijayawada Andhra Pradesh were carried out to study the existence of various people with different need. Also visited two states i.e Andhra Pradesh and Kerala to analyze the contrast between two states.

Interviews of Visually Impaired students and their parents have been very useful to get a real life incidence and the real problems faced by students based on the context.In this scenario of visually impaired carrying out with interviews directly with students was not allowed in any schools, because of this sensitive issue, I spend time with students by sitting together with them in the class and closely observing them.

Concept

Inclusive Edu-Cards

DIY-Part

How it works

  • Each edu-cards contains study elements which are respectively tagged to a QR code at the left side this relation is understood by braille coding.

  • When the tags are inserted into the smartphone mount which lets the smartphone read the QR code

  • By pressing the scan button the smartphone will give audio description corresponding to the edu-card.
