Are you working with a low vision student and want to know more about how a low vision student can successfully integrate technology into his/her classroom?  Mainstream technology now includes many low vision accessibility options and students with low vision are successfully using these new tools in the classroom.  Many students who previously rejected the bulky CCTVs and other "blind" tools, are embracing the mainstream devices with built-in or third party accessibility options.  Where can you learn more about accessibility options, apps, and tools for low vision students?  Check out these Paths to Technology posts - especially the recently-added Getting Started with Screen Magnification post!  The Getting Started tab on the Paths to Technology Home page includes posts that explain the various low vision options on a specific device and how to teach these options.  Some of these posts also discuss available low vision apps that are regularly used on that device in the classroom.
