Virtual PD- Perkins School for the Blind presents Helping Students Access Digital Content/Making Documents Accessible

This course will educate stakeholders on up and coming forms of digital instructional materials, tools to access multimedia, and how to integrate technology into a student’s workflow in the classroom. Access to an iPad throughout the course is strongly recommended; several activities will require an iPad for optimal learning.

Classrooms are becoming increasingly technology driven and full of multimedia instructional materials. As digital instructional materials become more prevalent, the learning environment must be designed accessibly and students with visual impairments need skills to access all forms of information.

Mainstream technologies offer many opportunities for students who are blind or visually impaired, but only when well integrated with specialized access according to classroom demands. For new and seasoned TVIs, critical thinking skills are necessary to assess challenges in the classroom, evaluate student needs, and implement appropriate solutions.

Instructor: Dr. Yue Ting-Siu
