Access to Classroom Learning by Students with Blindness and Low Vision (March 11th webinar facilitated by Cynthia Curry)
Published:March 8, 2010
There is still time to register! With the appropriate tools and accessible instructional materials, students who are blind or have low vision can participate in the same rigorous and progressive curriculum as their peers. Our guest, Nancy Moulton of Catholic Charities Maine, will improve our understanding of what teachers can do to support the full participation and achievement of students with blindness and low vision in the general education classroom. We’ll meet a local middle school student who combines the use of a Braille device with his MLTI MacBook to read, write, communicate, and collaborate with his peers and teachers across the content areas. And, in the process of understanding the unique learning needs of students with blindness and low vision, we’ll glean new insights about how we can better meet the needs and preferences of all learners.
This webinar will be offered at 3:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m.. You can register online at http://maine121.org/webcasts/. Registrants will receive a direct link to the webinar as well as login information.
