Alphapointe Technology Camp

June 21, 2021 @ 9:00 am - June 25, 2021 @ 3:00 pm EDT

Alphapointe’s Technology Camp is a week-long day camp experience for middle and high school students with vision impairments. Campers can attend virtually or in-person at Alphapointe.  

Campers will train with Jaws or ZoomText software depending on the camper’s visual needs. Campers will also learn to utilize various technologies that impact academic development, advance their internet navigation skills, develop social networking knowledge, and establish internet safety and security awareness. 

All campers will work with a laptop during training with a Microsoft operating system that includes the Microsoft Pro Edition software package. This includes Word, Excel, Access, Publisher, PowerPoint, and Outlook. 

In addition to hands-on technology skills, campers will have an opportunity to meet and work with a variety of mentors who have successfully utilized technology in their chosen careers as professionals with vision loss. 

Campers will receive their laptops to take home after the five days of training.
