Workshop 5 at 7th iCREATe 2013: Touch the world – the power of tactile graphics
A good picture is worth a thousand words. Concepts that require lengthy textual explanations can be illustrated in other modalities. Students with profound visual impairments deserve similar means to support their education. The goal of this workshop is to equip the participants with knowledge and hands-on experience in the thought process of designing and creating tactile graphics. What is oftentimes neglected is opportunities given to students with visual impairments to interact actively with ready-made images or to create their own designs. If given good quality tools, students will be even more engaged in classroom activities. The participants will be given workshop material and will leave the class not only with knowledge but also with their own creations. All the equipment and other material will be provided.
