Rio 2016 Olympics
This summer really is the summer of sport. We’ve had Euro 2016, Wimbledon, Tour de France and now the Rio Olympics!
To help fuel the conversation surrounding the events, we have created a grid set that enables you to instigate a conversation about the Olympic events. Talk about your favourites, ask to watch specific things, cheer on your favourite country and express your feelings on the performance of the athletes!
You can cheer or boo or play your vuvuzela, all while you watch using our 6 cell sound grid.

Amending word lists
We’ve loaded the events word list in alphabetical order but you may want to sort the content according to your favourites or even simplify to a smaller list. This is nice and easy to do in edit mode..
From the Menu ribbon, select the Edit icon. Once in editing mode, highlight one of the word list cells and select Edit from the left hand side navigation.
Once the word list tool is open, you can manually sort each event type if you prefer. From the drop down box in the bottom left select No Sort order. You can now drag words in your list up or down to change the order. To delete a word, select the word tile from the left hand side list and click the Remove button in the editing tool. To add any events we may have missed, click the Add button and create your content! For those of you using these grid sets outside the UK you may want to use this editing tool to amend the running order of the countries… GO TEAM GB! 🙂
Olympic video player
We’ve also created a fun resource to use alongside the communication grid set. If the TV coverage is simply not enough, you can use this grid set to watch a selection of YouTube videos (internet connection needed). You can play Katy Perry’s official song for the Olympics, learn about the origins of the torch relay and the games itself. The TED style talks and documentaries may be better suited for older symbol users. Each video loads in its own grid and is supported with simple screen controls.
