A Bookshelf for the Accessibile Book Collections ICS Formatted Books

by Samuel Sennott

In the writing camp I have designed and am leading for AAC users, we have been utilizing the terrific Accessible Book Collection.  Many of you may know that Linda Bastiani Wilson, Darlene Brodbeck, and Patti Weismer have been leading a project to bring the picture books in the Accessible Book Collection into both Intellitools Classroom Suite and Clicker 5 formats.  This terrific project was presented at Closing the Gap in 2007.  Here is a bookshelf prototype I have designed that may prove to be useful to you if you have a membership to the collection.

  1. […] I envision a bookshelf/ launcher that is powerful, flexible, open and user friendly across multiple platforms.  It is so needed right now, but as we explode into the Bookshare age it will become vital. I have some pretty cool workups to share over the coming weeks, but see the one created for the Accessible Book Collection for a proof of concept:  https://alltogether.wordpress.com/2008/06/11/a-bookshelf-for-the-accessibile-book-collections-ics-fo… […]

  3. This launcher is great and the instructions are very simple – so if you are a parent using the Accessible Book Collection with a switch-user, then please try this out. If you are using this book launcher, it would be great to hear your feedback. Post a comment here, and at the ABC wiki: http://accessiblebookcollection.wikispaces.com/

    Thanks, Sam, for your great contribution.
