While this is great, this is the 21st Century - If they really want to 
adequately prepare teachers then they next also need to look at middle 
schoolers & elementary school kids ;-)

> Students who are between the ages of 16 and 22 years who are braille 
> readers and users of assistive technology are needed for a study. This 
> study will explore how you use both braille and electronic information for 
> classroom work, and how you learned these literacy practices. The purpose 
> of this research will be to add to our understanding of the current role 
> of both hard-copy (paper) braille and use of electronic access to 
> information by people who are blind from ages 16-22, and your attitudes 
> and perceptions about both braille and technology. This information will 
> inform how we prepare pre-service teachers to instruct young braille 
> readers.
> If you are interested in participating in this study or getting more 
> information, please contact me via email at  fmd22 at pitt.edu, by calling

> If you are under 18, you MUST have your parents' or guardians' permission. 
> A consent form will be send to you in braille or electronically after you 
> verify that you are:
> 1. between the ages of 16-22
> 2. a student enrolled in school
> 3. a braille reader
> 4. a user of electronic assistive technology devices, hardware, or 
> software.
> If you are under 18, your parents will also receive a consent form that 
> must be signed before you can participate.
> Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your interest!
