Mind maps are often recommended for students with dyslexia, to help them see the whole picture of a topic or concept. Jane was looking for an approach that was similar to mind-mapping, to give her an opportunity to showcase innovative ways to enhance learning through her research.
She wanted to carry out her research in a way that was respectful of students who experience challenges with processing language, and who may experience working-memory issues. It was important to make sure that the research method she used would reduce possible power inequalities between her, as a researcher, and the students.
She also needed to hear perspectives from all of the students in a short amount of time. This was important ethically, as students were missing class to provide their views, so limited time was an issue.
Ketso seemed the ideal tool to provide an interactive, respectful and inclusive medium to hear from students as well as their teachers.
