RNIB/VIEW Braille Network days provide an important opportunity to keep yourself up to date with good practice. Come together to share teaching techniques and resources for blind learners and to meet other people with similar interests and concerns.
The next meetings will focus on tactile resources to support the teaching of blind pupils and how these are used in the classroom. Contributors to the day will include Clearvision, Load2Learn and RNIB Reading Services. There will also be an opportunity to feed into the wording of a new RNIB/VIEW policy statement on support for braille users
Price: £40, including refreshments and sandwich lunch (VIEW members £30)
