Wizefloor as a tool to help tackle dementia.
One of the major challenges for people suffering from dementia is to remember things and recognise their daily routines in everyday life. Jigsaw puzzles on Wizefloor may help relieve this problem. Through the jigsaw puzzles, dementia sufferers learn to select a reference point on the image. For example, the point may be a flower in the bottom left corner and, in this way, the person with dementia knows where to start.
Reference points can also be used in everyday life - for example if a person with dementia has to learn a new walking route in the city, he or she must start finding a reference point at the beginning of the route and another point on the way and at the end of the route.
This is the reason why Wizefloor is being used to enhance learning at the social and health care college in Fredericia, Vejle and Horsens. Teachers and students use Wizefloor to support people with dementia and to prepare the students and thus future employees in the care sector for working with dementia sufferers.
The students are particularly good at creating games and learning activities.
The social and health care college has had a Wizefloor in each department for the last three years. The school aims to train staff in the care and educational area and uses WizeFloor for classes in physiology, anatomy and academic subjects such as dementia and nursing care. The teachers and students create the games themselves to be used for teaching by means of the Wizefloor app.
When we create games for dementia, the games serve as educational material for the students. In these games the students must detect early signs of dementia. But the students can also be assigned to develop a game for dementia citizens, the focus of which should be on training their memory, concentration, overview, and attention.
The social and health care college is currently developing a new learning portal to accommodate all the study courses offered at the college and this includes the WizeFloor. The social and health care college is full of technology for learning. Technology provides students with new exciting ways of learning.
The technology supports differentiated learning and motivates many students. The college also uses Wizefloor in an effort to enhance kinaesthetic learning.
