Through Another Set of Eyes
Millions of individuals in the United States are blind or visually impaired. Nearly 500,000 of these individuals are school age (5-18). The two following videos provide different perspectives on daily life with a disability. This module's discussion will ask you to consider your current teaching materials as they relate to accessibility and for the portfolio assignment you will create a video with a transcript. As you view the next two videos, think about the video content as it relates to your current role and the assignments you will be asked to complete.
This short video shows a student trying to use a Learning Management System through the use of a screen reader.
The second video profiles a blind man and his campaign to force Target Corporation to make their online shopping experience more accessible.
This video provides an unexpected perspective of the need for closed captioning.
