Lyfta brings beautifully crafted immersive storyworlds into classrooms, so children can discover exciting new places and inspiring people from around the world.
Children on the autism spectrum exhibit a wide range of behaviours, including: difficulty relating to others and understanding unwritten rules, difficulty in communicating (some may communicate in a non verbal way), and difficulty with thinking flexibly eg how to cope when plans change. Children on the autism spectrum can have a range of communication difficulties. Having worked in numerous special education schools and with children’s disability charities, the Lyfta team is passionate about helping teachers provide an inspiring and exciting way to engage and teach autistic children the curriculum and many important skills and values.
Lyfta combines people, place and pedagogy. Their aim is to ensure that their 360 environments are home to interesting and visually stimulating multimedia content and powerful short documentary films. Lyfta’s quest tracker (which communicates the tasks the teacher has designed in his/her lesson plan) “scaffolds” each child’s learning experience so they can explore and learn independently, freeing up the teacher to facilitate, roam the classroom and support as required.
