The Next Generation Laboratory Interface for Students with Blindness or Low Vision in the Science Laboratory
Supalo, Cary A.
Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, v16 n1 Article 5 p34-39 2012
Entry into science education for students with blindness or low vision can present economic and technological barriers to access. This manuscript discusses funding hands-on student experiences in middle school, high school, and post-secondary education. Further, the use of access technologies recently developed for science education is also presented. Partnerships between access technology companies that are committed to working together make access more possible than ever before. The shift from the Director Assisted Approach to independent data collection in a hands-on way to promote interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) careers is discussed
