Abstract:
This paper focuses on the use of multimedia technology to augment instruction for a special population. In Spain, the main musical instrument used in music classes is the recorder. However, the integration of children with disabilities in music classes that strictly follow a traditional learning system can be very difficult or even intractable, resulting in a negative effect on students. Information technologies represent a valuable means to overcome this potentially negative situation. In this work, we present the PLAtform for the Integration of handicapped children in Music Education (PLAIME), a multimedia tool to assist children in learning music, disregarding having some disability that inhibits handling the recorder. This tool is not intended to replace the teacher but to serve as a complementary learning mechanism, integrating e-learning with traditional learning. PLAIME includes theoretical lessons, customized activities, and collaborative games using peer-to-peer technology. Initial results show a positive acceptance by children.
