Ms. Westover from Springville UT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students an HP 17.3" touchcreen laptop with carrying case.
Have you ever thought of what challenges you would come across navigating a computer without a mouse or touchscreen? What would you do? Some of my students with visual impairments are faced with that thought on a daily basis as they navigate technology in the classroom or in some cases at home.
My students are willing to learn new technology but often need addition accommodations to meet their needs.
One of these accommodations comes in the form of screen readers.
The HP 17.3" laptop will give my students an addtional tool to learn a free user-friendly screen reader, NVDA. NVDA is only compatible with Windows. We will teach individual students how to use NVDA and its related shortcut keys. Students will learn how to navigate around the internet, webpages, Zoom meetings, various documents, and forms. They will also learn how to use various shortcut keys to create documents and send emails. The possbilities are endless!
The laptop, along with the Windows compatible NVDA screen reader, will help our students now as they continue their educational pursuits beyond public education.
Because technology is used on a daily basis, especially in this ever changing world of Zoom meetings and remote learning, it is essential to teach my students how to navigate a variety of devices. For our students with visual impairments, it is important that they learn about the options available to them. This world has become technolocially savvy and my students with visual impairments must be ready.
