Designing Collaborative Strategies supporting Literacy Skills in Children with Auditory Impairments using Serious Games

Literacy is a process that for children with auditory impairment face serious difficulties in thus acquiring oral language, due to the problems commonly associated with hearing deficit. Integrating Collaborative Learning (CL) in literacy learning may therefore be very favorable for children's learning. Therefore, it is proposed a model to design collaborative strategies using serious games. The model is applied to a study case was carried out with a group of 14 children with cochlear implants, in the pre-kinder and transition stages at Institute of Blind and Deaf Children in the Cauca Valley (INCSVC), in Cali, Colombia, where a collaborative serious game called Phonomagic was designed, which is orient to the teaching of reading and writing for children with cochlear implants, where the serious game has the objective focuses on children learning to identify each of the sound that are formed and phonemes when they are written.
