Innovative Braille LEGO-Style Bricks Help Blind Children Learn To Read While Playing
Spread the love
The Braille Bricks project, co-founded by the Dorina Nowill Foundation For The Blind, helps blind children learn to read through play. Each block can be used like a toy by blind and sighted children alike, although for the benefit of the blind children, each block features one Braille letter. So far, the São Paulo based organisation has only manufactured enough bricks for 300 students, but through the Creative Commons, they hope more will be made.
The Creative Commons “Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International” license is the second-coolest part of this project. This license makes the design FREE to share (copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format), or adapt (remix, transform, and build upon the material) for any purpose, even commercial, as long as you distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.
