Podcast With A Blindness Perspective.

Apr 24, 2020

Full Transcript

Simon Bonenfant pulled together a “RoundTable” of students to talk about distance learning, virtual learning and how they are adjusting to the challenges due to the lockdown and closing of schools across the nation.

They talk about accessibility, processes, what’s working and what is not working and how they are advocating to be sure that they are not falling behind.

Kaleigh, Simon, John, Jillian and Gianna all bring a unique perspective and unique challenges to the virtual round table. Sharing their opinions on distance learning, schedule planning and how to deal with isolation.

We all want to thank all of the Front Line workers, teachers, TBVI’s Paras and school admins for what they are doing to ensure that we all make it through this challenge we are all facing. Thank you all.
