Abstract

This article presents an Interactive Multimodal Environment (IME), the Stanza Logo-Motoria, designed to support learning in primary schools. In particular we describe the use of this system as a tool (a) to practice listening to English as a Second Language (ESL) and (b) to enable children with severe disabilities to perform an interactive listening. We document the ongoing experimentation of the Stanza Logo-Motoria in ESL lessons and report its encouraging results. Moreover, we explain how it may be possible, by means of the Stanza Logo-Motoria, to redesign traditional learning environments in order to allow pupils to experience listening as an active and engaging experience. © 2013 International Federation for Information Processing.
