Here is some information I copied and pasted from another list I belong to with the Florida Instructional Materials Center for the Visually Impaired.  They had and are having several webinars.  Those that have occurred are podcasted and can be viewed.  I don't remember all of them, but they are listed on the site.  Hope this is helpful.

Those of you working from a computer will click on the following link: Accessible Calculators.  If you are using an iPad or mobile device, download the Adobe Connect Mobile App prior to the webinar. When asked for the URL:


Select ENTER AS A GUEST, then type in your full name and school district (this is our sign-in sheet).  Once you are in the room, be sure you have audio speakers or headphones set to the correct volume.

The virtual room will open at 1:00 p.m. so you can download handouts, check your settings or familiarize yourself with the technology. If you have problems, please call 813-837-7829 before 1:45 p.m.  Since we are recording the sessions, we will not stop to troubleshoot during the session. 



FIMC-VI looks forward to learning with you this year! Feel free to contact us with any questions. 


Thanks for all you do for kids!

 I am curious to know what apps are used most in the
 classroom. I've heard that teachers use their phones or
 iPads to work with the students in class, but I am not sure
 of any of the apps that are used. What apps are accessible
 for teachers who are blind? Any help would be greatly
