Orientation and Mobility Technology: Survey Says


Session Dates

Thursday November 30, 2017 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM


If you have ever wondered what technology other O and M Specialists are using, then come hear what the “Survey Says!” This webinar will present the survey results from Pennsylvania O and M specialists who are currently incorporating technologies into their O and M lessons. The survey explored online resources, use of phones, tablets, and apps. This session will include demonstrations and application opportunities.


Participants will:

  • Describe the main type of devices being used, main age range devices are introduced into lessons, and the time point devices are incorporated into lessons.
  • List at least three apps that they can incorporate into their instructional practice.
  • Explain that the lack of access to a student’s device, that is different from one’s own, is a limitation to instruction and preparation.
