Blindly Using an iPad
A great and inspiring video from Bernie Goldbach, Tipperary Institute. Although this article is written from a 3rd level context, it is certainly relevant to all levels of education. To watch the video, please go to: http://www.insideview.ie/irisheyes/2010/12/blindly-using-an-ipad.html
OKI YUSEF IS legally blind. But that hasn’t stopped him from learning how to use an iPad in mainstream third level education at Tipperary Institute. I’m following his remarkable progress as he completes a major research paper on learning with the iPad. He’s showing me things I wouldn’t normally see and he likes some of my online favourites like Audioboo. Watching him in this applied research setting is one of the most uplifting experiences in my life.
