Making Sequences is an application designed especially to teach the sequence of a story or to help children learn the steps to follow to complete a task. It achieves this by using a graphic story divided into parts.

The application already contains some image sequences to work with, but you can create your own sequences and add voice and text messages to them. As a result, “Making Sequences” can be used to teach daily living skills in a personalized and enjoyable way, as you can include user images in the stories. In addition, you can use the application to work on short social stories.

Functional Description
Upon entering the application, you find the home page represented by a cork where the different options are attached.

First, there are four options that have informative and communicative roles. They are:

  • The information icon, which redirects you to the section related to Making Sequences at Zorten Software’s website.
  • Under the cork you can see the inscription “Questions, comments or need help?” that leads to the contact page of the same website.
  • “More apps by Zorten Software”, that shows you other applications of Zorten Software.
  • And, represented by a pen, the option of sending a recommendation of the application by mail.

The other options, larger and more visible, are those related to the application’s main functionality. You can choose to enter each in the order you want.

We chose to click on the “Choose Sequences” option first. It allows you to choose the subjects (ie, sequences) to use after for the exercises. You can use them all or choose only those that most interest you. There are a total of fifteen sequences, having each one between three and five elements.

Once selected the sequences, we went to “Place in Order”. With this option, you practice the exercise itself. It immediately presents you a sequence to sort. You can set the text and audio of each of the sequences from which to work, and you can choose whether you want that text to appear and the audio to be played or not.

Also, in the same settings menu, located at the top right of the screen, you can choose that images appear with a number on the top to indicate its position within the sequence. This option can be useful in case we need help to solve some of the sequences.

If you have selected all the topics that contains the application, they are presented to us at random, which means that the order will not respond to the same ranking criteria or number of elements.

Given these observations, you can begin to put the sequence following the logical order of occurrence. Dragging each image to its correct position does this. For now, no signal will tell you if the sequence is ordered or not.

Once we have finished the exercise, you know the result by clicking the “Done” button. A verbal message will indicate if the sequence is correct or not. In the event that you have not done well, you can repeat the exercise inmediately, either by correcting the previously proposed order or by clicking “Shuffle” and starting to work on the sequence again. If your practice has been good, you will get a verbal compliment.

One thing to comment on these exercises is that, whether your answer is right or wrong, you have the option to use the other icons on the screen at any time. Thus if you want, you can click on the following options:

  • “Shuffle” to shuffle the images again and so they are presented in a different order.
  • “New sequence”, which serves to move into a new sequence, so you can repeat the above process with a different exercise.
  • “Go back”. With this icon, go to the previous exercise.
  • “Listen to Story”, with which the elements of the sequence will be extended one to one in the order we have proposed and a voice will tell what happens in each image.

The last option in the main menu Making Sequences is “Edit / Add” with which we can create new sequences. For this we must ascribe a name and create it from the images that we choose and which may be accompanied by text and audio.

Assessment
Making Sequences is an app with a very clear purpose: to be a support tool for all those children needing help in understanding the logical and typical order in which events occur. Like its purpose, its content and structure are also very clear. The presentation of the exercises is simple and the images are not confusing, which is basic to understanding each sequence and get correct answers.

Another very positive aspect of the application is the possibility of creating your own sequences. Not just because you can create a wider range of units to work, but also because it will allow you to generalize them using different backgrounds, images, characters, etc. both familiar and unknown to the user. In addition, this option could be used to create new sequences based on the existing ones, modifying their level of difficulty depending on the child’s ability.

We assess positively the fact that there are no exercises help camouflaged, ie no visual or sound effect that gives you clues about whether you have placed one of the images right or wrong. You will know if they are right or wrong only when you click on the “Done” button. If you have done the job properly, the app will congratulate you. Otherwise, you will be invited to repeat the exercise, though without providing any help, so you’ll have to try to do the exercise again without knowing where have you failed and what to do to correct it. The latter would be a nice improvement, because for optimal learning we must avoid repeating errors that may confuse and frustrate the child.

However, we believe this application is useful and beneficial for children to learn, practice and get experience in identifying the main parts of a situation, grasp the logic of events and know how to sort them.
