• ArtikPix and ArtikPix - Full 3.1.3 are now available on the App Store! Check out what's new: • Reordering control of sound positions • Bug fixes Version 3.1.3 includes a feature to reorder sound positions, which was similarly available prior to version 3.0 of ArtikPix; however, in version 3.1.3, the reordering feature is configured for each student in the app. So, it's possible for example to run an activity in which one student's cards are reordered, and another student's cards are the default order. To reorder, go to the Sound Positions screen, then turn OFF Shuffle, and move desired sound positions via the reorder control (three horizontal lines stacked). ArtikPix version 3.1.3 also includes bug fixes, such as a fix for a crash in iOS 11 that occurred when searching students (if [...]

The new version of ArtikPix also includes bug fixes, such as a fix for a crash in iOS 11 that occurred when tapping YES to add a video to the camera roll.

  • In response to user feedback, the prompted tallies in ArtikPix and ArtikPix - Full 3.1.1 now have an updated appearance and are one of three tally configurations (as seen in the post’s image with three screenshots). The star-smile button is correct with prompting; the smile button is correct; the frown button is incorrect; and the star-frown button is incorrect with prompting. Because a fair number of users prefer the simple correct and incorrect tallies, it is now the default configuration (middle screenshot); however, you can change the configuration via the Options to hide all tallies (left screenshot), or to show the prompted tallies (right screenshot). Here’s how to access the three tally configurations: Left screenshot - hide all tallies (More > Options > Hide All Tallie[...]

  • 4 years. It has been 4 years since the last ArtikPix update! Why did it take that long? Well, several events occurred in the last 4 years, leading me down a long road of learning experiences that helped me finally complete the update now. 2 years ago, I had developers try to update the app. It was going to be a minor update to fix some appearance issues and glitches, but other significant features broke in the app. Additionally, the app really needed a major update that required more experience on my behalf. I started thinking how it could be better if I had the expertise to code my own apps. Additional events - occurring within my life in the last 4 years - led to this major ArtikPix update. One big event in my life was having children. My wife and I now have two energetic sons, Lev[...]

  • Lately, there has been increased discussion of coaching communication partners, and collecting data to track the effectiveness and frequency of modeling. For example, PrAACtical AAC posted a sample data collection form this week. As an AAC Specialist working in a school district, I'd like to share how I use Percentally Pro 2 - my iOS app for data collection - to track the progress of communication partners (e.g., staff, parents, peers) modeling with aided language stimulation. When coaching communication partners such as special education staff, I assess modeling across a variety of communicative functions: ask a question, comment, protest, request, and share information. In Percentally Pro 2, I start by enabling zeroes for measurements (More > Options > Include Zeroes ON (as indi[...]
