Paths to Literacy

for students who are blind or visually impaired

Tech Project Seeking Input from TVIs

Cornell Tech NYC logo
The Cornell Tech lab is researching the role of technology in concept development for students who are blind or low vision and they're looking to explore opportunities for new technology in this space. They would like for TVI’s to volunteer to help them with their research. They would love to learn more about what tools you use when working with your students, and your experiences with technology. This will eventually help them develop new educational tools for TVI’s and students with visual impairments. They think your input would be invaluable in helping them design in the right direction. 
 
This year their lab is conducting research about 3D printed tactile learning materials and how Teachers of the Visually Impaired use these materials.
 

Here are the details:

Who: Seeking volunteers who are TVI’s working with students
 
What: Participate in one or more interviews on what tools you use when working with your students and your experiences with technology. They will audio record the interviews. All of the data we collect will be anonymous.
 
When: The interviews will be conducted over a week, depending on your availability. 
 
Where: Interviews will be conducted at remotely via phone or Skype (or similar application).
