Book Published: 2020 Opening Eyes Series. Volume 2
Teaching learners with visual impairment can be doubly challenging even for veteran teachers. This book is volume 2 of the Opening eyes series of books. The volume is about Teaching Learners with Visual Impairment. I present this book on behalf of a duo
of editors, myself Maximus Monaheng Sefotho and Ronel Ferreira. The book builds on the theoretical general support provision discussed in volume 1 and presents practical and user-friendly strategies to guide teachers of learners with visual impairment.
The gist of strategies rests on the axle of universal learning design, assistive technologies for a transformed and socially just approach to teaching learners with visual impairment.
The practical nature of this book caters for transition challenges faced by learners with visual impairment. Watching this video is an invitation to enter the conversation on application of diverse strategies suggested. As an OER material, kindly access
the book to try some of the suggested techniques, as they also apply to inclusion in general and can benefit uplifting teaching the STEM subjects effectively. The strategies used assist teachers to prepare learners with visual impairment for the world
of work that is becoming complex by the day.
