Spatial Language Used by Blind and Low-Vision High School Students During a Virtual Engineering Program

June 1, 2022 | Exhibitions, Professional Development, Conferences, and Networks, Public Programs

The purpose of this paper is to explore results from a qualitative study of how high school aged BLV youth used spatial language during a virtual engineering experience administered by the National Federation of the Blind (NFB). Findings from this study can provide recommendations to enhance language in curricula that better reflects BLV students' content and may ultimately encourage more BLV students to pursue careers in STEM fields.
