SwitchIt! People Extra
� SwitchIt! People encourages students to think and talk about the people they see in their everyday lives. It has been designed to develop and demonstrate understanding of cause and effect through pressing a switch (or other input device) to build a scene.
� Press the switch and see how the nurse, crossing guard, postman and supermarket cashier do their jobs. Also covers emergency services and a big burly garbage collector.

Age range: Early childhood and early to mid primary school

Use in 3 different ways:
Event Sequences: 12 little animations each based upon a simple theme such as lunchtime assistant. Each sequence has 5 steps, carefully chosen to maximize speaking and listening.
Picture Building: build pictures and see them animate, or use the one-step option for basic cause and effect.
Flash Cards: flip through a selection of large pictures that relate to the theme.

Options to configure:
� Choose how many steps it will take for each scene to be completed.
� You set the length of reward after each switch press.
� A new picture menu allows children & non-literate students to choose  which story or picture they would like to play from a selection chosen by the teacher or caregiver.
� SwitchIt! People Settings or Preferences can be saved and loaded at any time for use by a particular user.

� a touchscreen;
� a mouse, trackball, or joystick;
� an IntelliKeys keyboard;
