TEACHING AIDS

The room consists of four separate units (so-called ‘islands’), an oversized 3D model of the human ear and eye, an interactive whiteboard, and high-space, removable, three-dimensional cubes.

Rare historical and also contemporary teaching aids for pupils and students who are blind or deaf as well as for pupils and students with a mental health disability and autism are located on the individual islands. The visitor can learn the letters of the Braille alphabet with the help of a replica of the Braille training table. He or she can find several objects in the small wooden door marked with a pictogram of a hand (opening). These small wooden doors enrich the tour of the exhibition. The 3D models of the human eye and ear with detachable parts are undoubtedly distinctive elements of this part of the exhibition. They serve to better understand the functioning and disorders of these important organs.

The three-dimensional, removable cubes evoke the world of people with a physical disability and the barriers they encounter daily. The educational programs for students who are hard of hearing are offered in this room, e.g., a software (called Fono 3) on an interactive whiteboard and an oversized game of Man, don´t get angry. The visitors themselves become figures in this popular game.
