Tactile Graphics: A Dual Challenge

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

OCALI

470 Glenmont Ave. - Columbus, OH 43214

Designed for itinerant personnel who support students who are blind or visually impaired, this workshop will focus on two important topics:

  1. How tactile learners understand and interpret tactile graphics, and how to teach them to efficiently use them.
  2. 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.
