The Reading Brain in a Digital Culture – Promise and Concerns, featuring Dr. Maryanne Wolf

June 23, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT


As we explore the barriers to success in college and career for students who are blind and low-vision, we need to understand how they are learning, the significant role that technology plays – and how they can keep up with the demands.

College Success @ Perkins presents Tech, Literacy and Educational Equity: Exploring What’s Next and Necessary for College-aspiring Learners with Blindness and Low Vision, a two-part webinar series that will connect you with leading experts to explore the crucial intersection of technology and learning in 2021 and beyond.

Register now for the first session, “The Reading Brain in a Digital Culture – Promise and Concerns,” a lecture and interactive discussion with renowned children’s literacy advocate Dr. Maryanne Wolf, along with a panel of blindness experts who will discuss the implications of current research on the reading brain for students with blindness and visual impairments.

And save the date for the second session on July 21, featuring Dr. Yue-Ting Siu, TVI and assistant professor in the Program for Visual Impairments in the Department of Special Education at San Francisco State University.

These are discussions with wide-reaching implications. All educators – including TVIs, special educators, assistive technology teachers, parents, vocational rehabilitation counselors and more – will benefit from attending.
