The Multiswitch Teaching Aid

Originator.......Tom Jeary


THE PROBLEM:       To construct a device for early cognitive training that teaches using colours,shapes and sounds, activated by pressure switches.

THE SOLUTION:      The box shown above contains a light, a fan and a horn. They are mounted on a triangle, a square and a circle that are coloured red, orange and blue. Each is seperately activated by a pressure switch  connected through a jack receptacle . The trainer can then request that the student activate by sight or sound (i.e. "make the horn blow" or "turn on the light"), By shape or colour or any combination ( i.e. "first choose the square, then the colour blue, then turn on the fan").
