BrailleNote Touch: Completing Classroom Assignments with KeySoft and Google Applications
The BEST Grant in collaboration with the AT & AEM Center, American Council of the Blind of Ohio (ACBO), Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI), the Ohio Center for Deafblind Education (OCDBE) and the Ohio State School for the Blind (OSSB) invite educators, parents, students and support staff of students with visual impairments to attend.
Join Mike Tindell of HumanWare to learn more about using the BrailleNote Touch in the classroom. This hands-on workshop will begin with a review of the hardware, apps, navigation strategies and uses of the BrailleNote Touch in the Classroom. Participants will use KeyMath to write math expressions in Nemeth code and insert those expressions into a KeyWord document. Next participants will share documents with cloud applications such as Google Drive and review different uses of the BrailleNote Touch File Management tool. Finally, participants will connect to a wireless network and use features built into KeyWeb to conduct research on the web.
