Getting from Here to There and Knowing Where: Teaching Global Positioning Systems to Students with Visual Impairments
Phillips, Craig L.
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v105 n10 p675-680 Oct-Nov 2011
Global Positioning Systems' (GPS) technology is available for individuals with visual impairments to use in wayfinding and address Lowenfeld's "three limitations of blindness." The considerations and methodologies for teaching GPS usage have developed over time as GPS information and devices have been integrated into orientation and mobility lessons with children, adults, teachers, parents, and orientation and mobility specialists.
