Students in our 21st century classrooms are using digital educational materials – especially now with remote instruction, online courses and virtual classrooms. Teachers of students with visual impairments are actively seeking accessible digital resources.
The Teacher-Created Resource Library on Paths to Technology is a library of various types of free digital resources that teachers and families can simply select and immediately use with students. These accessible digital materials have been created by teachers - for teachers. Many of the Library resources have associated posts with lesson plans and ideas expanding how these materials might be used to teach specific educational goals.
The goal of the resource library is to share our teacher-created materials so that each teacher does not spend time re-created the same materials. Teachers - please share accessible digital materials that you have created and help us grow the Resource Library! The Resource Library is starting with non-visual digital maps, teacher-created "books" (in a variety of digital formats: ePubs, iBooks, presentations, PDFs, documents, etc.) and Lessons (activities). Due to popular demand, digital tactile images for PIAF and Swell machines were added to the bottom of the Book section. Please send your accessible materials (and questions!) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Resources are regularly being added - please check back frequently to see the new additions!
