Teachers learn about using the iPad with blind students
Bloomberg has posted a video of educators learning to use the iPad with blind students. While iPads are becoming more prevalent in schools, many teachers are not familiar with the device's accessibility features.
To address this issue, Ed Summers has designed a course to familiarize teachers with how iPads can benefit blind and visually impaired students. Summers is the head of accessibility at SAS.
Summers and his team have trained more than 200 teachers and written several manuals meant to enhance their skills. He remarked on how the iPad lets students perform tasks more easily or that were otherwise impossible, like emailing homework to a teacher.
