We got a new grant for travel mainly that will enable me to collaborate more with Anara Sandygulova from Nazarbayev University.
As Kazakhstan is planning to move from Cyrillic to Roman alphabet, we are planning to use the Cowriter setup to motivate children to learn the new alphabet.
This work will also continue our work on dysgraphia by collecting handwriting data samples from children in the two alphabet. The goal will be to discover features that are independent of the alphabet to characterize handwriting skills.
Excited for my first visit to Kazakhstan. 🙂
