Does it seem intimidating to know what and how to advocate for your students’ technology needs? Implementing the appropriate technology, instruction, and resources to support students’ technology requires a delicate balance of informed advocacy and diplomacy, but it can be done! In this live webinar, Dr. Ting Siu will present ideas for how to scale up blind and low vision students’ digital literacy, and how to advocate for needed supports. Parents are critical stakeholders in this process and the strongest advocates for driving appropriate instruction. **Please note this webinar is exclusively for parents and guardians**. We invite you to come and learn:
- The language for how to advocate for needed technology
- The concepts for what blind and low vision students need to develop digital literacy
- How to support meaningful instruction with technology
