Teaching Aid

Finsual

Back

Finsual was designed to help visually impaired people augment their sense of image perception. All of these teaching tools are white because they are meant to symbolise the light of understanding and potential knowledge. By actually feeling the basic shapes of the geoboards and assembling them, visually impaired students have an opportunity to experience how certain patterns work. In a playful way, they can thus acquire a better understanding of the language of images. They can then use this language when communicating with full-sighted persons.
