>Dear EOTs,
>Would you please consider forwarding this email 
>about research in the use of technology in study 
>of advanced mathematics by students who are 
>blind to TVI's in your state. It requests their 
>voluntary participation in an online survey.
>Thank you for your assistance with this important research.
>Dear TVIs,
>Teachers of students with visual impairments are 
>needed to participate in a research study 
>regarding experience in use of technology to 
>teach advanced mathematics to students who are 
>blind. The research is being conducted by the 
>Special Education Program of the College of 
>Education at Texas Tech University as part of a doctoral dissertation.
>If you have taught or supported students who are 
>blind (no functional vision/braille readers) in 
>an advanced mathematics subject in secondary 
>school, your input is valuable in determining 
>which high-tech devices are beneficial. This 
>online survey (see link below) takes 10-30 
>minutes to complete, depending on the number of 
>different subjects you have taught or supported. 
>It allows for skipping questions and exiting at 
>any time. Participation is voluntary and anonymous.
>Participants must have experience as:
>·        A TVI teaching advanced mathematics in a residential school or
>·        An itinerant TVI who has supported a 
>student in an advanced class in a public school.
>*Advanced mathematics is defined as algebra 1 or 
>beyond at the secondary school level.
>Please complete the online survey by January 20th, 2012 by going to:
>Your time and willingness to share your 
>expertise in efforts to best support the study 
>of mathematics by students who are blind is 
>greatly appreciated. All responses will remain 
>strictly confidential. You may choose to enter a 
>drawing for a $50 Amazon Gift Card. If you do 
>so, an email address will be required. Chances 
>of winning are estimated at 1 in 300. Winner
