Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI)
Going Pro: Using YouDescribe in the Classroom and Beyond
Join Video Description Research and Development Center (VDRDC) for a free, forward-looking webinar on the changing world of educational video description on December 11, 2013 at 02:00 PM EDT/01:00 PM CDT/12:00 PM MDT/11:00 AM PDT. While previous webinars have introduced YouDescribe, the exiting new tool developed by the VDRDC that anyone can use to add description to YouTube videos, this webinar will feature a live panel discussion about how YouDescribe is being used to provide access to content beyond the K-12 classroom.
Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI) serves as a special public school in the continuum of statewide placements for students who have a visual impairment. Students, ages 6 through 21, who are blind, deafblind, or visually impaired, including those with additional disabilities, are eligible for consideration for services on the TSBVI campus. It is also a statewide resource to parents of these children and the professionals who serve them, from birth through transition from school.
iPad use survey. I would like to invite TVIs to participate in an electronic survey regarding iPads being used with students who have visual impairments. iPads are offering so many exciting accessibility possibilities for our students. I am hoping to learn about how often and in what ways iPads are being used with students who are visually impaired in the United States. At the end of the survey, you will be given the option to indicate your willingness to participate in a learning module I created to help address the training needs for TVIs regarding iPads. A limited number of participants will be selected for this phase of the study. Each TVI participating in the learning module will receive free materials to help you implement the iPad with your students and a $10 iTunes card to purchase apps. Thank you in advance for your time. The survey should only take 10-15 minutes, and if you see this post in multiple places, please only take the survey one time. Tara Mason, TVI, M.Ed.
