SymbolWorld is a wonderful resource from Widgit that we constantly share in our training sessions and workshops. SymbolWorld has short articles – science, social studies, recipes, jokes and more — carefully symbolized and written in a clear, simple style. eLive magazine pages have current events, reviews, sports stories from around the world also symbolized and considerately written.
Teachers have told us they use SymbolWorld articles for research, class discussions and modeling writing. Readers of SymbolWorld vary from adults with cognitive challenges, to kids with reading disabilities to students who are new to English.
Web-based SymbolWorld works beautifully on any browser, including iPads or other tablets.
Now the eLive magazine is better than ever! New stories will be published instantly and other popular categories such as ‘People’, ‘Entertainment’ and ‘Sports’ will be updated regularly. All supported by the regularly updated 40,000+ Widgit symbol vocabulary.
If you haven’t checked out SymbolWorld in awhile you may not have realized that you can now customize the settings for greater accessibility including colour, size, page layouts and heights for scrolling.
Just register for free and you can change settings and even print symbolized articles.
