Ballyland tactile learning tools

3D Printable tactile resources for use with Ballyland Code apps

Purchase the  .stl files to 3D print a unique Ballyland© set for use with Ballyland Code 1: Say Hello and/or Ballyland Code 2: Give Rotor. Specifically designed to support tactual exploration and 'mental mapping', required for computational thinking and coding with the app. Choose from a number of print packages, and 3D print your own tactile grid, mini Ballylanders, and obstacle-tiles (rubbish bin, pond, rock, bushes). Note that these are small models with no moving parts, for use with the apps.
You can purchase the print files for Ballyland Code 1: Say Hello and Ballyland Code 2: Give Rotor by following this link.

“ It is very interesting how the possibility of touching the little Ballyland characters makes a difference for the little ones. Even, the way in which you can use the same grid in all apps, makes them better understand voiceover, coding, etc.”

Ballyland tactile images

You can download a blackline image (pdf file) for each Ballylander by selecting the links below. To make the image into a raised line drawing, print the file with a Piaf, using swell paper. This will enable children to feel what each Ballylander looks like. The raised line drawings can also be used as colouring pages.
