AnimalWatch Vi Suite

Pre-Algebra Readiness for Students with Visual Impairments

About our Research

We've been busy sharing information about our study. In Spring 2015 Dr. Rosenblum presented at CSUN, CTEBVI, AFB-AZAER Leadership Conference and the Math Institute held by Principals of Schools for the Blind. As this is a research study, she did not make her presentations available for download.

Professor of Practice Dr. L. Penny Rosenblum recently provided a project update through a blog post on the Perkins Accessible Science site.

Dr. Rosenblum talked about AnimalWatch Vi Suite research during her keynote address at the Round Table on Information Access for People with Print Disabilities Conference in Brisbane, Australia in May 2014. You can read more about her month-long trip by opening a copy in PDF format.

The AnimalWatch Vi Suite project was featured in a recent edition of the Division on Visual Impairment Quarterly from the Council on Exceptional Children. You can read the article by L. Penny Rosenblum by opening a copy in PDF format.

"What's HAPPening at UofA When It Comes to iPad APPs," written by L. Penny Rosenblum, was published in the fall newsletter of the Arizona Chapter of AER. Open a copy in PDF format.
