Multiplication Super Flashcards and NaviLens Activity

The very first set of NaviLens tags designed to help create Super Flashcards is now available free from Teachers Pay Teachers thanks to the generosity of the wonderful people of NaviLens (¡Muchas gracias Nuria y Javier!). 

Below is a 2.5 minute YouTube video with translatable closed captions that shows the idea:

 

Now for a description in words: Below is an image of an APH math drill card for the multiplication fact of “9 times 9.” This card comes with large print and either Nemeth or UEB braille math. At the bottom of the card I’ve added a very small (1/2″ or 13 mm square label) that has a colorful NaviLens tag added to it. 

The idea is that by adding NaviLens tags to the front and back of each of the 100 cards in the set students are now able to independently practice both math facts and reading math braille in any of the 33 languages* NaviLens supports. A best practice would be for students to use NaviLens hands-free by using a $5 – $15 phone lanyard so that they can hold and read the math braille with their fingers and then tip the card up so that NaviLens can then scan and speak the tag contents. 

Image 1: Front of 9 x 9 = APH Math Drill Card with NaviLens tag plus and additional enlarged tag for scanning.

APH 9 x 9 = flashcard in print and braille with a NaviLens tag - a small, colorful square.

Try it #1: Display the tag above on a computer or tablet screen (or print it) and then scan it using the free NaviLens app (not NaviLens GO) using your smartphone. You should hear “Nine times nine equals.”  

Try it #2: Scan the tag displayed below to hear the complete math fact “Nine times nine equals eighty-one”.
