ObjectiveEd Offers Free Distance Learning for Students with Visual Impairments

(DGIwire) – While many educational websites are providing free access for schools, teachers and students during the current Corona crisis, there are few options for students with disabilities, and almost no distance learning options for students with visual impairments.

ObjectiveEd, a company that builds digital curriculum and skill-building educational games for visually impaired students is solving this problem.

The company’s curriculum enables students with visual impairments to practice the skills they need to become successful in school and independent in life and allows their specialized teachers to remotely adjust and assign skills for each student to practice, and to monitor each student’s progress on a web-dashboard.

The company will be providing free access to their digital curriculum to schools, teachers and students with vision impairments through the end of the current 2019/2020 school year.

ObjectiveEd’s distance learning help students practice skills such as clock directions or compass directions.  They can improve their braille literacy skills using ObjectiveEd’s Braille Sheets, where you place a sheet of braille on an iPad, and the iPad knows what’s on that sheet.  ObjectiveEd won the Louis Braille Touch of Genius award for Braille Sheets, as well as awards from the American Council of the Blind.
