Designed for itinerant personnel who support students who are blind or visually impaired, this workshop will focus on two important topics:
- How tactile learners understand and interpret tactile graphics, and how to teach them to efficiently use them.
- Techniques and materials to quickly produce tactile graphics often needed in a school setting. Development of “stock” from which to draw to quickly make graphics will be discussed, as well as time-saving techniques.
Through instruction, practice, and discussion, participants will:
- Learn how tactile readers understand and interpret tactile graphics
- Learn instructional strategies for teaching tactile readers to read tactile graphics
- Learn instructional strategies for teaching tactile readers to "write" their own tactile graphics
- Learn how to plan and design a readable tactile graphic
- Learn techniques and procedures for creating tactile graphics "on the fly"
- Practice using materials for production and learn resources for materials and equipment
