LODE is a web tool for children that are novice readers, and is primarily meant for deaf children. It proposes written stories and interactive games for reasoning, globally, on the stories. In this paper, first, we motivate the rationale of LODE, and explain its reasoning games. Then we briefly describe the design of the web client-server architecture of LODE; the server employs a constraint programming system for creating and solving the LODE games in real time.

Abstract

LODE is a web tool for children that are novice readers, and is primarily meant for deaf children. It proposes written stories and interactive games for reasoning, globally, on the stories. In this paper, first, we motivate the rationale of LODE, and explain its reasoning games. Then we briefly describe the design of the web client-server architecture of LODE; the server employs a constraint programming system for creating and solving the LODE games in real time. Finally, we concentrate on two evaluations of the latest prototype of LODE: one with hearing novice readers; another one with deaf readers. We conclude by discussing the results of the evaluations, and their implications for LODE.
