The VizZle Player(TM) is a kid-friendly environment that allows educators and parents to launch interactive instructional lessons for children who learn best from visually supported materials (e.g. children with autism, in early education, or typical children with a visual learning style). VizZle Player was designed using exclusively licensed intellectual property stemming from research proving the efficacy of a visual language-based approach to educating students with autism. It is also equally effective for any student who learns best visually.
Bug fix with the student tree; Updated logic to ensure consistent image display in lessons.
Ratings and Reviews
Looks good but...
This requires a login to access most of the materials, although there is no mention of this in the description. I went to the website and it won't say how much the subscriptions costs, you have to contact one of their consultants to find out. I also agree with the comment about the interface not being responsive. It feels like I have to tap just the right way to get an image to respond, which was a bit frustrating for me, so I'm sure would doubly frustrate my students. I loved the timer feature, and the articulation game board that were in the examples, as well as the first then schedules, but I really need to know more about the costs of the full version up front to remain interested in this.
poor content and not working
first issue is the player did not work well on my ipad2 but once i got some things to open, I was astounded at the content. for example one "game" posed questions regarding employment, vocabulary such as resume, application, termination, ect and when the correct answer is chosen the "reward" is a meowing kitten or a bunch of twinkling stars. WHAT? how about using age appropriate content? would not give to my students in high school, who while they have autism and could handle the content are beyond meowing cats to be rewarded.
Better, still not great
The first version of this app was pretty terrible from a performance perspective. While they have made some improvements, it still remains unusable on my iPad 1, and barely usable on my iPad 2. Some support types (board games) fair much better than others (sorting). I still think many of my students would have a very frustrating time using this app. We'll continue to stick with the desktop version for now.
