Story Winner: Helping Students with Disabilities Learn About Computers

Many thanks to Trish Auletta for sharing her experience teaching an ‘Introduction to Computers’ class to students with disabilities.

Trish explains, “Quite often, topics are so conceptual that students struggle to be able to apply and understand them. Such topics also typically require so much 1:1 support, that collaboration among students isn’t possible. One of those topics dealt with pixels. Students struggled to understand that the pictures they looked at on the computers were made up of smaller ‘shapes’ put together.”

Her school’s librarian came to the rescue, suggesting StickTogether. Trish purchased several large format posters. “On the first one (the tiger,) we allowed students to place the stickers without knowing why. They enjoyed themselves and worked on social skills and collaboration. When they were done, we lined them up, held the picture up close to them and then started backing away. Watching their eyes go wide once the “pixels” took shape was simply remarkable!”

Building on that success, her class completed several more StickTogether posters. “After the first surprise, they now gather at the end of each class period trying to guess the picture! An added bonus came when our occupational therapist came by our class. She was thrilled with StickTogether and how it helped with student’s fine motor skills.”

Pixelated Inspiration

Pixelated Inspiration

At StickTogether, we have a soft spot for all things pixelated. If you share our sentiments and are in the New York/New Jersey area, or are planning a visit over the holidays, you might want to check out Liberty Science Center’s Pixel Art.

The interactive exhibit includes 952 pixel dials, each of which can produce over 1,000 possible color combinations as they’re turned. Visitors can create endless patterns and images, going wherever their imagination takes them.

Speaking of pixels…while at the Liberty Science Center, make sure to visit the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium. The biggest in the Western Hemisphere, its lighting system can produce 281 trillion colors, with an image resolution of 88 million pixels (in case you were impressed with StickTogether's 4000 ‘pixel’ sticker posters!)

Story Winner: Keeping Them Guessing

Collaboration Community Building Conference

Story Winner: Keeping Them Guessing

We’re delighted that StickTogether (and Van Gogh!) helped Liz Smith Yeats, a Public Image Coordinator for the Rotary Club of Detroit, bring people together at a recent conference. Her assignment was to help unify the organization’s identity and further understanding of its work around the world. “We can inspire new people to join us to continue the service that we do. For example, we have been at the forefront of Polio eradication for over 30 years.”

Setting up a StickTogether ‘Starry Night’ poster at her table proved a great lure. “It brought people over and provoked lots of good conversation. We could load them up with some brochures and swag, and they had fun at the table while sticking and visiting.”

 “Folks were sometimes shy about joining in,” Liz elaborates, “but I just handed them a sheet of stickers and said ‘Your letter is H.’ After a few awkward stickers, they were soon bent over and really laying them down.” She adds, “I didn’t let them know what they were making and withheld the yellow and orange stickers until the end, as I thought that would be a dead give-away. I needn’t have worried. It wasn’t until nearly the end that folks got it.”

On the conference’s second day, Liz gave everyone a not-too-subtle hint. “I stood behind the table wearing a ‘Starry Night’ tee shirt. Folks looked right at me and didn’t get it. I would have them step back… then their eyes would light up. It was great fun!”

At her next event, Liz plans to try Munch’s ‘The Scream,’ from StickTogether’s Masterpeice Collection. "And before you ask,” she confirms, “yes, I do have a ‘Scream’ shirt too!”
