Summary: This workshop discussed the need for teaching screen magnification/enlargement software (including input from adults with low vision), strategies for determining appropriate software, and resources for acquiring that software. Participants heard ideas for lessons, assessment, and goal writing so that they felt prepared to implement screen magnification software instruction with their students. The live workshop included hands-on experience with screen magnification programs. You can gain this experience through downloading the free trial for whichever software you're interested in.

Thanks for your comments about Laura's wonderful post on screen magnification.  Laura shared another magnification post under the Getting Started section that you might find useful:  Getting Started with Screen Magnification.

Please feel free to share your experiences and teaching tips on Paths to Technology as you work with your students!
