AT Skills Through Gaming
The Carroll Center offers a virtual afterschool program for students between the ages of 7 and 11 to develop and increase assistive technology skills using an iPad. In partnership with ObjectiveEd, a company that provides digital curriculum and skill-building educational games for students who are visually impaired, the AT Skills Through Gaming afterschool program will help students improve listening skills, directionality, and use of VoiceOver gestures. Students will play games including Barnyard, Monster Cafe, Speed Gesture and Simon. Sessions will be held every Tuesday from 4:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M. ET beginning May 3. Parents and teachers are also welcome to participate. To attend, students must have access to an iPad. Students will obtain a single license to ObjectiveEd for an entire year and be encouraged to play the games during the week to reinforce skills further. Students will also have the opportunity to socialize with peers and provide feedback on the games. Funding may be available through your State Services for the Blind. The cost is $450 for this 4-week session.
