The new KERC Syllabics Keyboard App is amazing! It is helping First Nation and Native American students learn in the classroom and home. Students can type in Syllabics on their smartphone and read the translation text as they type.
New Syllabics Keyboard App
“Learning Syllabics used to be difficult and only used by academics, but with the KERC App, children are learning and having fun with Syllabics. I’d encourage every student and teacher to download it for iPhone and Android today!” – Darrick G Baxter, Ogoki Learning Inc.
Kwayaciiwin Education Resource Centre is based out of Sioux Lookout, Ontario and services northern schools with teaching resources.
Oji-Cree Syllabics Keyboard
The keyboard is based on the Oji-Cree Syllabics chart. It includes characters and letters from the Unicode text. The app is a great tool for visitors to use when they see Syllabics written in the community. Its ability to break down communication barriers is amazing.
Oji-Cree Syllabic Flash Cards
As an additional item, the Oji-Cree app also contains flashcards with proper pronunciation and characters. The flashcards contain all the Oji-Cree characters in the Syllabics chart. It includes colour coded syllabics that are easily identifiable to young learners.
