I took another trip to California and, of course, allowed Ed to come with me. San Francisco is an amazing place to visit (especially in March when it’s cold and wet in North Carolina.)
On this trip, we met with wonderful group of people, the California Transcribers and Educators for the Blind and Visually Impaired, Inc. (CTEBVI). They get together once each year to share experiences and ideas to support and advocate for people with visual impairments.
This year Ed and other wise leaders created a symposium to discuss cutting edge technology that is being used in the classroom, such as electronic textbooks and web-based instructional materials. The symposium explored assistive technologies and how they can be used to prepare students with visual impairments for the future! It gave us a lively and energizing afternoon.
While we were there, the news organization, Bloomberg News West, sat down to interview Ed. Check out the video clip here or below.
Perhaps you might wonder if I felt slighted that Ed got so much attention, but I really didn’t. It’s fine with me if he does most of the talking. I’m good with being silent but gorgeous.
