Digital math: Help us build math best practices!

Seeking high school students, college students, TSVIs and general education math teachers to participate in this critical digital math research!

Editor’s Note: Digital math is a hot topic! Math teachers and students with vision have a plethora of available math-related applications and authoring tools to choose from. Unfortunately, TSVIs and students with visual impairments have limited accessible digital tools and currently lack digital math best practices. There is critical need to develop accessible digital math best practices for TSVIs and their students. Please help us by sharing your experiences to learn what digital math tools are being used successfully, and share this research study with other stake-holders.

We are conducting a research study approved by Florida State University’s and the University of South Carolina’s IRB Boards to explore how individuals with visual impairments, both high school students in grades 9-12 and college students, use technology to participate in math learning. The technology includes both mainstream technology (e.g., tablets, computers) and specialized assistive technology for people with visual impairments (e.g., braille notetakers, video magnifiers, JAWS, VoiceOver). 

We are asking for your help to advertise our study. We are seeking four groups of individuals:
